Thank you all.
25th - 30th November 2017
An exhibition by local photographer Mark Ferguson includes some of his award-winning photos of Orkney from recent Scottish Nature Photography and Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competitions. His images are displayed in formats ranging from traditional mounted and framed prints and canvasses to more contemporary acrylic and aluminium-mounted prints. Mark takes many of his images in winter and at night, believing that Orkney's crystal clear, unpolluted skies enhance the beauty of the landscape and provide unique photo opportunities.
