Its about time I updated on blogs and what better way than to fill you all in with our recent road trip to Scotland. Having arrived home after a fantastic 2 weeks away Steve is now facing weeks of processing from all the photo shoots he completed. I on the other hand face catching up with correspondence, doing accounts, and updating the website, anyone want to swap? ;-)

Anyway back to our trip north and this time we were headed to Grantown-on-Spey via Dumfries & Perth. We had a busy week planned from our base at the Grant Arms Hotel with Steve giving 2 talks to the BWWC who are based at the hotel. As usual the Grant Arms and all the staff were as friendly and welcoming as ever. It really is a joy to arrive somewhere where you can instantly kick off your shoes and feel at home.
The week was also taken with 8 photo shoots, 6 on one day in Grantown-on-Spey and 2 in Aberdeenshire on another. Normally I would stay in the hotel or read in the car whilst Steve worked however on many occasions during this trip to Scotland I accompanied Steve which enabled me to observe him doing his thing. It really is quite fascinating to observe Steve working and trying to see what he sees; it's always amazing how he turns the images into pieces of art work from the pictures on the back of his camera.

As the images above show these shots certainly the portray dogs characters and relaxation in front of the camera.
Of course as well as photo shoots and in between the talks, you'll be surprised to know we did have some time for a 'holiday.' I was even privileged enough to be bitten by a donkey and of course Steve was there to capture the moment! I was also able to get my fix of history (one of my hobbies) when we visited Fort George & Linlithgow Palace whilst Steve was able to enjoy some wildlife photography focusing on capturing images of Kingfishers and some fab shots he got too. There is more on this on a further blog focusing on the Kingfishers Steve managed to photograph.

All in all we were lucky enough to have a great holiday and meet lots of lovely people who were all so welcoming; but also a full 2 weeks away of virtually perfect weather.

 What more could you ask for from Scotland in late September?
