  • Scottish Rocks

    Scottish Rocks

    These rocks stand ancient and strong near the top end of the Isle of Skye. I think there’s something distinctly otherworldly about this location. It could almost be Mars, couldn’t it?

  • A Maltese Falcon

    I found this stone bird statue whilst exploring Malta a few years ago.

  • Sky, Mountain, Rock, and Water

    Sky, Mountain, Rock, and Water

    This is one of my favourite shots, from one of my favourite locations in the whole, wide, world. This is the view from Sligachan across to the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye. You have to get here early to avoid the tourists, but it is definitely worth it.

  • Bow Fiddle

    This fine looking natural rock formation, known as Bow Fiddle Rock, lives on the coast at Portknockie, Scotland.

  • Bedding Planes

    Bedding Planes

    Some interesting and abstract bedding planes, if you know where to go you can find these cracking rock formations in Cornwall.

  • Bird on a Rock

    Bird on a Rock

    I was very lucky to be standing in the right place at the right time to get this shot. The light was particularly good.

  • Red Rocks

    Red Rocks

    Here’s another detail from the Grand Canyon. The sheer scale of this place is impossible to depict in a single image. It’s truly miraculous to behold.

  • Canyon Colours

    Canyon Colours

    This is the Grand Canyon, Arizona. It’s amazing to think that the thin strip of blue down there, the Colorado River, had the power to carve out this huge canyon.

  • Persevere


    The NASA robot, Perseverance, is right now searching the surface of Mars looking for signs of water, signs of life. If it’s lucky perhaps it’ll find a scene a bit like this one? I can confirm that this water and these rocks were most definitely found on Earth.
