Highlights II & The End – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Today we spent another 5 hours in the minibus, arriving back in Falmouth just after lunchtime. Continuing with the highlights of our adventures in Cairngorms National Park from the rest of the team: Georgia: My absolute highlight of the trip is photographing the deer in the snow - it was such a magical and beautiful…Read more Highlights II & The End – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Highlights I (& Southbound) – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

After around 10 hours in the minibus, we are now in Birmingham to stay a night before heading down to Cornwall. For a change we had burgers for dinner (we have been taking turns to cook this past week), and we are spoiled by Holly's dad's delicious cheesecakes as dessert! Still can't believe that the trip…Read more Highlights I (& Southbound) – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Mountain Hares – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

This morning Carys and I went out with David to the ski lodge to photograph red grouse and mountain hares. We saw lapwings, oystercatchers, pheasants, meadow pipit and pied wagtail on the way, as well as red deer and roe deer! I went with the intention to photograph the female red grouse as I didn't get…Read more Mountain Hares – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Birds of Prey & Boxing Hares – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

This morning was clear and we have some set snow around. A group of us went out with Mark again to photograph red grouse and mountain hare at the ski lodge.

Ben Rinnes – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

This morning Becca and I tried the red squirrels again with Carys, and we got very lucky (compared to our last session). We brought a one-man hide for Becca and a two-man hide for Carys and me. At least two squirrels came back repeatedly for peanuts, and one was in a tree above us nearly…Read more Ben Rinnes – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Let It Snow – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

No one was in the black grouse hide last night as we had an extremely early start this morning to catch the sunrise at Loch Morlich. There were a few clouds around when we arrived, giving us chance to get some long exposures and reflections done before we got covered by the clouds and snow.…Read more Let It Snow – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Loch Garten, Crested Tits and Red Deer – MNHP Cairngorms 2017

Last night a group of us went out with David for a night shoot at Lecht Mine as the sky is considerably clear. Haven't edited any photos or timelapses yet but they should be quite good! I was extremely lucky to see a “fireball” level shooting star – it was certainly the most spectacular sighting of…Read more Loch Garten, Crested Tits and Red Deer – MNHP Cairngorms 2017
