Ah, Scotland. You have truly stolen a piece of my heart.
This short time lapse film is a compilation of memories from a glorious 16-day road trip I shared with my family in 2014. From rugged coastlines, powering waterfalls, and golden beaches to castles, mountain peaks, and sunlit valleys, Scotland has it all. One captivating adventure after another. 16-days simply wasn’t enough time to see all that Scotland beholds.
I’m thrilled to have Paul Leonard-Morgan’s superb score “Scotland” accompany my images for this piece. It’s a fine thing when a vision becomes a reality.
What I wanted to do here was simple: Portray the beauty, versatility, and tenacity of this small yet perfectly formed dot on the world map. My mixed use of color and black & white photography represents the dichotomy between the colorful life and dark history that has filled these lands; and tells you a little about how I see the world.
I dedicate this short film to the people of Scotland and to those that may never have the opportunity to visit in person.
Thanks to my family for your patience, and to Paul Leonard Morgan for the stunning music!
May you approach each day with intent and end it with a smile.
