I have just got back from a few days in Aviemore which was fantastic.

We were hoping for some snow and whilst there was some on the tops the white stuff remained elusive.

We had a walk around Rothiemurchus Forest on the first day. It was quite wild and windy with lots of rain but exhilerating to be out in such a wild place with wild weather. Our wet gear did us proud!

On the second day we went up to the Cairngorms and again warm clothing was the order of the day the scenery even more spectacular.

For the third day I booked a half day session photographing crested tits with local guide and ace photographer Neil McIntyre. He took me to a wonderful spot in the middle of the forest where the crested tits came to within 3 feet!

The light wasnt great but I was very pleased with these shots all taken at 1/5000 again the D810 does the business in low light conditions.

Nest year I might be a bit more adventurous and head out on the hills for Ptarmigan or mountain hare.
