The recent wintry weather inspired many photographers, professional and novice, to take to the snow-covered streets with their cameras.

Bob Goodman, from Campbeltown, took this shot from the Esplanade, near the war memorial, with his Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera, looking across Campbeltown Loch towards the NATO fuel jetty.

Mr Goodman, a keen amateur photographer, said: ‘After the first snowfall in Campbeltown this year I took a walk round the town first thing in the morning to take a few pictures.

‘What I liked about it is that an oncoming car’s head lights provided the light in the foreground, lifting the picture.’

In the dawn light, just before 9am, Mr Goodman used an ISO effective film speed of 1250, with a focal length of 105mm, a shutter speed of 1/13 second and an aperture of f/6.3.

The weather inspired more than just Mr Goodman, with the Courier receiving several stunning snow-covered shots of Campbeltown – look out for them in future issues.
