Lochcarron, Scotland - 2020 More often than not, a sense of place is an integral ingredient of a strong contextual photograph. If we can manage that in South Sudan; and South Georgia, it should be possible in my home country of Scotland. Whenever I work up here, I am slightly on edge as I feel a little; bit more pressure to deliver.; This is probably the best photograph I have taken in Scotland (if we exclude the football images of Celtic and Rangers in the 1980s); because it scores highly on both subject and context. If one or other is mediocre there is no image, but in this case, the 14 pointer stag is; magnificent and the rest is Scotland as Scots know it and as it is assumed to be by others. Grand, slightly mournful, but at all times unique.; I don't have an issue magnifying nature. The romanticist movement glorified aesthetics and I am of that persuasion. Why dumb things; down? Scotland can be bleak and gloomy, but therein lies its beauty.; I could not have achieved this frame, high up in the coastal hills of North West Scotland, without considerable local help and I would like; to thank Colin Murdoch for his support and counsel. Our team call him "The deer whisperer" and I think that is about right. He is the; most cheerful man I know at 5 am in the morning.; I think this a deeply emotional image and all the better for it.
