The Stones of Stennes and The Ring of Brodgar, Orkney
This is the 5th of my series of instavideos featuring the participants, ‘Behind the Photographer’ shot on the Quiet Landscapes photography retreat with Margaret Soraya and Paul Sanders. The photo featured here was taken by Lesley Lintott and you can follow her on Instagram @lesleylintottabstracts.
She’s an artist who uses photography to inspire her art, and I love her close-ups and photos of small details that might generally pass unnoticed.
For all you Outlander and Tolkien fans who love knowing where ancient stones can be found, we were at the Stones of Stennes and the Ring of Brodgar in Orkney, within short driving distance of each other.
It’s a beautiful place, sadly it feels very remote and far away at the moment with lockdown, but I’m looking forward to going back in the not too distant future (I hope).
If you’re thinking that you need some video or editing, please do get in touch. I don’t just do travel filming; I also enjoy helping others get their talents recognised, and showcasing who they are and what they do. Maybe you have footage you’d like to do something with, and I can help edit it for you.

Margaret Soraya and Paul Sanders from Quiet Landscapes work really hard to create the perfect safe and nurturing environment for people to take stock and reflect on what direction they want to take their creativity in.
