This website,PennyPictures, contains photographs taken by Dennis Penny an amateur photographer living in Dunfermline, Scotland. The photographs cover a variety of different subjects and style and can be viewed by using the Gallery headings above.
The majority of the photographs on display have been taken using Canon cameras and lenses. A variety of Digital SLRs being used over the years.
However particularly when Travel photography is involved the photographs will have been taken using a Compact Camera which is more practical to use.
While this is not a commercial venture, any of the images displayed may be purchased for a nominal fee. Further details are here.If you would like to contact me direct please use the email address shown below.
Included in the site are several galleries of sporting events. These include Equestrian events from Horse Racing to Show Jumping, with Polo, Carriage Driving and the disciplines connected with Horse Trials also being covered. Other sports are covered from fast paced Motor Sports of both car and bike racing to a perhaps the more sedate sport of Beach Cricket.
Although the capturing of the action may be seen as the purpose of sports photography where possible photographs are included showing some of the background to the event.
All the photographs are taken from areas used by spectators with no special access or privileges being sought or granted.
Also a general interest in aircraft has sparked an interest in aviation photography.
The aim being where possible to avoid standard record shots and creating images that
are a bit different.
This can therefore be a challenging subject with the weather, light and types of aircraft all playing a part.
While taking photographs at Edinburgh Airport an unexpected bonus has resulted as it has turned out to be a good source for wildlife photography. From Ospreys to Deer have been photographed within feet of the airport perimeter fence. In addition to general aviation being covered at Edinburgh Airport galleries of photographs taken at Air Shows and also of Gliders near Kinross are also included.
There are however other galleries covering various subjects and photographic techniques.
Navigation through this site can also be achieved using a Site Map .
