“LANDSCAPE AND NATURE IN BREADALBANE” – David Paterson’s second exhibition in the Stirling Museum and Art Gallery – consists of some 65-70 photographs, presented as moderately-large, high-quality digital prints.
The main emphasis is on landscape but flora and fauna are represented also, with the intention of giving a comprehensive account of all that Breadalbane offers.
David Paterson quite deliberately puts forward the proposition that the region stands very high in the ranks of Scottish landscapes, and indeed competes very well with the more emotive names such as Skye, Torridon and Wester Ross. The photography dwells at length on Breadalbane’s atmospheric forests and woodlands, on the tranquil hour before sunrise, and on the ringing silence of the mountains. It is a plea to enjoy, and to help preserve, the great store of natural beauty that is Breadalbane.
