Donald Ford Images - Scotland's golf and landscape photographer

Apologies for the long delay.......

I am not sure just how many followers of the Donald Ford Images brand might be out there, wondering if the photographer has done a bunk, lost his memory or suffered some grave misfortune, as website updates have all but disappeared in 2016.

The truth is that, fortunately, none of the above has yet transpired. A few material changes to the shape of this wee business became necessary in 2015, however, the greatest of which required a move of office from its occupation of an ideal spot on the main street in Carnoustie. Naturally ( being male ) yours truly completely underestimated the complexity of the manoeuvres which - eventually - resulted in the creation of a new HQ just a mile away to the north-east of the town. The coincidence of that all being carried out while a fairly severe computer upgrade was also being executed led to a fair amount of anguish and disruption to "the system" . Some ten months later (and with fingers crossed), however, I think it is safe to say that we are now up and running as smoothly as can be expected, in light of the unforeseen "still to do" list, which grew arms and legs as the autumn of 2015 stretched into the winter and spring of 2016.

Anyway.....here we are; back up to speed, happily boasting a fair collection of smashing photographs from the eight months of the new year. These have now passed - seemingly in a flash - and as time appears to put its foot on the accelerator as one birthday does little more than herald a flat-out sprint to the next one, here we are again.......another summer has almost gone and the nights are ALREADY drawing in!

For my regular calendar customers out there.....have no fear. 2017 calendars are printed, look magnificent (he said, modestly) and, after finishing and binding, will be in stock in September. Sincere apologies for the ridiculous delay in keeping you abreast of progress but, in an age of outrageously swift technological advancement (not to mention the age of the writer, of course!) I suppose I should be happy that I am still fit enough to bring you up to date with all that has been going on here in Carnoustie.

I PROMISE that the next blog WILL be sooner, rather than later, and thank you for your patience!
