Souherly Point

The Mull of Galloway gallery has been added to the website’s portfolio section. The images were shot around the Mull of Galloway, the most southerly point in Scotland. It feels very remote even though it is only 28 miles from Stranraer. The project was initially created to be a colour project but it took on a new direction developing into the warm black and white images seen in the gallery.

The gallery can be found at https://www.richardflintphoto.com/portfolio/mull-of-galloway

Reviews on the Blog

Many years ago, way back in 2008, I published a review for my Billingham 445 camera bag over on the Richard Flint Photography Blog. Over the years, the review has remained the most popular post on the blog receiving plenty of favourable comments from photographers. The review helped a lot of readers decide on purchasing their first bag.

Twenty Five Years

Ten years after the original 445 bag review I posted a follow-up review for my older Billingham 550 bag, a bag I’ve had the pleasure of using since 1996. Just recently it accompanied me to the Mull of Galloway in Scotland. Its amazing to realise that the bag has spent 25 years with me. Lots of adventures had and different bits of camera kit carried during that time – not forgetting the places visited.

So I’m very pleased that both of the reviews have been added to the expert review links section on the Billingham website. The links are below:-

Mull of Galloway Lighthouse flashing its warning – May 2021

A new gallery has been added to the Redbubble shop containing a selection of new lighthouse images taken while staying at the Mull of Galloway lighthouse. New images are being added on a regular basis that can be purchased as wall art, mobile phone cases, and more. Check out the website at richflintphoto.redbubble.com

The Lighthouse

The construction of Mull of Galloway lighthouse was started in 1828 with the lighthouse coming into operation two years later in 1830. The design of the lighthouse remained pretty much a standard for all lighthouses constructed throughout Scotland. In 1986 the lighthouse was finally automated and the lighthouse keepers left the Mull.

The lighthouse itself is still owned and maintained by the Northern Lighthouse Board but the remaining buildings are owned by the Mull of Galloway community trust,

Lighthouse Photographs

A number of images of the lighthouse are available to purchase but the two night shots of the light flashing are favourites of mine. It was a photograph i wanted to get of the light flashing it warning – after all its what the lighthouse is for!

The two photographs were taken on different nights. Fortunately, the weather remained very good with no rain, however, the wind proved to be a slight challenge. Cold gusts of wind vibrated the tripod and camera making the exposures challenging. I am pleased with the resulting photographs. The darker, more moody lighthouse image has a cinematic feel to it whereas the lighter, less dramatic image has a closer view of the lighthouse with the cold blue of the night sky.

Lighthouse Prints

Several prints are available featuring the lighthouse with the gallery being updated to include new images. There is also a lighthouse gallery featuring images of lighthouses from a variety of locations around England and Scotland including Neist Point, Islay, and Scarborough.

The prints featuring the Mull of Galloway lighthouse can be found at the Redbubble store HERE
