Expert Shield Screen Protectors

I’m not one to endorse companies willy nilly but I felt the need to write this blog post about some great customer service experience I had recently. I’ve used Expert Shield products in the past for camera screens and recently I needed a cover for my Olympus camera. I bought one from Amazon and when it arrived it was too big for the screen but a couple of millimetres. This was disappointing as I needed the cover for a short trip I was taking with the camera. I got in touch with Expert Shield via Amazon and let them know my concerns about this particular protective cover.

Within hours I received an email back apologising profusely for the issue with the cover and was promised a replacement. This has now arrived and fits the screen perfectly. They actually sent me a couple. In fact I even managed to apply it without getting air bubbles. To cut a long story short they managed to remanufacture the covers to new dimensions and have replaced their faulty stock with the new ones and I couldn’t be happier. All the while the communications with their staff was top notch and friendly at all times.

I’ve recommended them before to camera buddies but this time they really have lived up to expectations, and exceeded them.

Black and White Spring

From a quick walk, Spring is truly here but instead of focussing on colours I wanted to expose the textures in these flowers using high contrast┬áblack and white. I’ll publish the colour versions shortly.

Early Spring Bokeh

Another cold spring day, but the sun was out. Didn’t get a chance to head out until just before sunset so I walked out with the camera and grabbed a couple of low light shallow depth of field images. The blossom is out so I took the chance to take that cliche shot. It’s still a favourite.

The Tentsmuir Project

A series of images taken in and around Tentsmuir Forest and Beach in Fife over a period of 4 years.

This is an ongoing project. I spend so much time in here wandering and taking photographs. It really is a great place and not too far from Dundee.

The place changes constantly through the seasons. The beach is evolving due to the amount of silt that is deposited at the mouth of the Tay estuary and the ongoing forest management means you are sometimes forced to take alternative routes when walking the path network.

On the Way to Glen Coe Stop Off at Glen Etive

Most people when they are traveling through the Scottish highlands are usually in a hurry to get to Glencoe that they pass Glen Etive almost entirely unnoticed. This is a shame as the 14 mile dead end road leads you through some fantastic scenery and some great wild swimming spots as well as to the shores of Loch Etive.


I wonder how many sunrises this tree saw before it perished. A great contrasting figure on Tentsmuir Beach, Fife.

Another Gorgeous Dundee Sunset

Another stunning sunset over Dundee today, this week has been fantastic with every evening producing an amazing array of warm yellows, oranges and reds in the skies.
