Light on Land and Sea - photographs by Steven Donaldson
Photographs from around Scotland showing the diversity of Scottish landscapes and weather, hopefully allowing people to feel part of the scene they are viewing. Stevens seascapes come from many years of working at sea, and are an attempt at remaining close to nature while bobbing around in a large metal boat!
Steven was born and bred in Dundee, but has always enjoyed the freedom and solitude of the highlands of Scotland. SinceheI picked up his first camera, he has been trying to replicate the sense of space and atmosphere that the landscape/seascape has to offer.

Tranquility : A view of the Scottish Highlands
The content of the exhibition is a pictorial journey through the Scottish Highlands in search of peace and quiet, away from the hassles of everyday life and all that brings. The photographs are deliberately devoid of people and the modern world with the aim to calm and to transfer the tranquillity that Davie feels when taking them to the viewer. There is a strong influence of water in the photographs that emphasises his own fascination with the movement and power. The pictures have a signature style that has been described as painter-like.
Born and Bred in Dundee Davie has been interested in photography for many years without finding his focus. He revels in the peace of the Highlands and find that he is at his best when surrounded by mountains and lochs. Davie has a deep love of my country that seem to permeate everything he does and this comes out in his photographs.

This is an exhibition of seascape images of the Fife and Angus coasts showing the variety and beauty of the landforms and scenery, and is the result of a two-year project by a small group of landscape photographers.
The St Andrews Photographers are a small group of photographers based in North Fife who all just happen to be members of St Andrews Photographic Society. Between them they have many years of experience and their work has won many accolades locally, nationally and internationally. Although they have exhibited individually before, this is their first major exhibition as a group.
