This is a quirky shot of the Isle of Eriska Spa Suite" SAGE" taken from the conservatory window with a wide lense on a canon EOS1Ds Mk 3 with a 12mm-24mm sigma lense on board. Dennis and Tony are always looking for unusual angles and new ideas to give clients an exclusive edge,after all this is one of Scotlands top hotels.
Captured on sunday afternoon ,these local members of the Isle of Eriska leisure club play a round of golf on this beautiful 9 hole course amidst some of scotlands finest scenery Dennis Hardley at http://www.scotphoto.com/ One of these two players has played on top american golf courses and spoke very highly of this course which is well maintained.
Another cozy corner of the newly refurbished SEIL Suite at this very fine and beautifully situated hotel on the stunning coastline of Argyll.
Yesterday was spent photographing these newly refurbished rooms and Spa suites at the prestigious Isle of Eriska hotel using my Canon EOS1Ds mk 3 camera. I really enjoyed capturing this suite "SEIL" with its striking colour co-ordination with bright pinks etc and I spent quite a lot of time giving this suite some thought.www.scotphoto..com
Another smart looking corner in newly refurbished SOAY suite in the Isle of Eriska Hotel .I like to take my time and soak up the atmosphere in order to capture the right feel of the place.I thought the colour co-ordination was superb and blended seamlessly.
Yesterday I was busy photographing the latest upgraded rooms at the Isle of Eriska hotel island and spa nr Benderloch Argyll. This picture shows SOAY a recently refurbished suite on the ground floor of this fine hotel more samples of my interior work at http://www.scotphoto.com/

I have produced a new and more striking picture of the "Great Marquess" hauling the jacobite alongside Loch Eil en route to Mallaig from Fort William. This line is one of the most scenic rail routes in the world and operated by steam trains weekdays until the end of October.Professional photographer dennis Hardley can supply high quality prints of trains on this route at http://www.scotphoto.com/

Dennis was asked to shoot interiors at this lovely comfortable hotel on the esplanade in Oban last week so here are some of the results.Using his canon EOS1Ds Mk 3 with sigma 12mm lense in most cases he tried to convey the warm-ness and character of this well kept accommodation. The fact that it has great views must be shown to its advantage.
During my hectic few weeks photographing steam trains on the west highland line I managed to get this shot of driver Peter Walker at the controls of the Great marquess LNER K4 Class 2-6-0 shortly after arriving at Fort William with the "West Highlander" from Glasgow.Nikon D3X with 14-24 f2.8 lens.Dennis Hardley Photography at www.scotphoto.com
I bumped into this gentleman who had spent the night on the hilltops around Auch Glen and was re-joining the west highland way. He is Robert Neill Coupe originally from the states but now lives in Preston,Lancs.tells me he had climbed 284 Munroe's and walked the southern upland way and the penine way.His interesting demeanour prompted me to take some shots of which this is one.Canon EOS1Ds Mk3 with 28-135 lens Taken Saturday 4th Sept 2010

Even though I knew beforehand that Black 5 4-6-0 45407 was travelling between Crianlarich and Oban tender first,I still thought it was worth a picture so I hauled myself up the hillside just to the east of Connel where I got this shot with Loch Etive and Ben Lora in background.This very loco was featured in Coronation street the week previous. Any picture from my blog listings can be obtained direct from me through my website at http://www.scotphoto.com/
I got permission to take a couple of shots on the footplate of the LNER K4 loco "the Great Marquess" 2-6-0 61994.This is owner and fireman John Cameron heaping coal onto the hungry fire.This loco was hauling the "West Highlander" from Glasgow to Fort William on that day before arriving at Fort William at 12.45 on Sat 4th Sept.
Last saturday The "west Highlander" hauled by LNER K4 Class 61994 "The Great Marquess" operated between Glasgow and Fort William crossed the horseshoe viaduct in Glen Auch by Tyndrum.Dennis captured this shot as it crossed this great viaduct.
