August 2017 Picture of the Month

 

St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall, Orkney, taken from the top of the tower of the Bishop's Palace last month. This was the first day of our visit to Orkney working on a major feature for a forthcoming issue of Scotland Magazine. It was also my first real chance to put the latest addition to my 5D MkIII armoury through its paces – Canon's amazing 14mm f/2.8 lens. We were there mainly to photograph Orkney's Neolithic sites and visit the excavations underway at the Ness of Brodgar which are turning the pre-history of Britain on its head.
