Stock Photography: Lanarkshire
*Page under construction*
I have amassed a large collection of Stock Photography images which previously could be accessed via a link to Photographers Direct.com. This was a well-established website with well over one million images on record, supplied by thousands of photographers worldwide. However, in early 2019 the site folded without warning or explanation, I suspect as the result of a downturn in the Stock Photography market.As an alternative means of displaying my stock images, I am in the early stages of creating a series of thumbnail gallery pages featuring shots previously held by PD in addition to those included in the main posts. Due to the large number of JPEG files I have not attempted to re-keyword individual files as before but have grouped them under general headings so that they can be accessed via a general search. Larger categories will be sub-divided and some subjects may be duplicated on one or more pages.
The Baron`s Haugh Nature Reserve lies in the Clyde Valley, close to the centre of Motherwell and is managed by North Lanarkshire Council in conjunction with the RSPB. It incorporates a variety of habitats including flooded meadow - the `haugh`, marshland, woodland and scrub as well as the adjacent River Clyde.
Historically Baron’s Haugh formed part of the Dalzell Estate which was a Royal Hunting Forest since at least 843AD and the haugh would have provided grazing land for sheep and cattle. The area has been a nature reserve since 1983 and has four hides which are positioned around the haugh offering excellent views across the water. Admission to the reserve and the paths through the Dalzell Estate are free and open at all times.
