The Scenery of the Dee Book is now reissued
by the Deeside Bookshop at Ballater and is on sale at various outlets in Aberdeen and on Deeside.
This is my online library of my current photography for sale.
Please check it out as well as see my latest work of Aberdeenshire
Seeing the Aurora Borealis in Scotland and the UK.
Three Internet sites that will help you to see displays:
Site gives best predictive information about Solar activity and likely storms affecting the Earth.
Alert service for the AuroraWatch advising of storms happening from data source using a magnetometer source from Crooktree.
Offers Scottish overview of various sites including direct link to Spaceweather European Aurora Oval map, the Crooktree data and useful cloud forecasts.
Interesting article in wheretraveler.com about seeing and photographing Aurora displays:
Countryside Pleasures
One of the benefits of living off the public road and between a forest and fields is as seen in this photo. Wandering on the track, the size of a cat and very wobbly I encouraged it to go into the long grass next to a stone wall-it remained there all afternoon; had gone the next day.Roedeer fawn by Crooktree track
I have not taken a serious snow photography for my calendar stock since this one in January 2013. There has been snow of course, but no deep snow, hanging on trees [not in this photo] with blue sky and sunshine, has been missing for most of Aberdeenshire.Snow scene on River Dee January 2013

Born in Torphins with my early schooling in Banchory I later returned to Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire in 1974. In 1986 I began compiling an extensive collection of my photographs when I established my freelance photography business. I was a BAPLA registered photo-library from 1990 - 2010.

Big news; in February 2019. I have sold my Egyptian Photographic Collection to The Ancient Egypt Foundation
My Egyptian Photos will be removed from the Internet- still on Crooktree Images temporarily.
There will be further updates.
I have added a Gallery showing the 2020 range of range of Kevin Smith's calendars that I provide photographs for. The calendars will be on sale throughout Aberdeenshire and be ordered online.

Since 2001 I have used 'addr.com' as my Website Host but sometime in March 2018 they must have ceased trading, without prior notice. I happened to find out that this website no longer existed on the Internet. It now being hosted by Mecca Hosting one of the very few who still support Frontpage thank goodness-saved this
old dinosaur of the Internet much heartache.
Some Deeside Castles in the Spring, however late.
Drum Castle
April 2011 and an early display
Crathes Castle
Early display in 2014
Balmoral Castle
Late display in May 2006
The two Aurora Displays below show that displays over Scotland can be seen during all months of the year as they are related to activity on the Sun's surface and are not just a event occurring in Winter on Earth.
The photos below are two summer 2003 Aurora displays with Aberdeen photos below taken at Dyce and the ARI Children's Hospital.

Where to see and purchase my photographs

My own online library is at Crooktree.com .

A selection of my Scottish and Aurora photographs are also on the Collections Library where they are available for purchase.

At the end of 2017 I also added all my collection of some 11, 700 photos from Crooktree Images to PICFAIR and these are available at the fixed price of 31.
