Vicinage - Anne Macdonald Photography
Hello, my name is Anne Macdonald and I have lived in the Shetland Islands all my life. My search for an active leisure pursuit at retirement 10 years ago led to the purchase of my first digital camera.
Living in Shetland provides endless opportunities for all genres of photography. Landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, archaeology and so much more. The extreme contrasts of weather can provide many different atmospheres for the same scene. The light in Shetland is exceptional and I’m privileged to be able to experience it.
There is no particular subject that I pursue but something I’ve learned through time is that, not only is how and when a photograph taken really important, but also why it is taken. This awareness could add an extra dimension to that moment of capture.
