Since his teenage years, Tim Berrall has been a keen amateur photographer, purchasing his first SLR camera with wages from his paper round in West Yorkshire. After leaving school he went on to join The Royal Navy, in submarines – a job which did not always lend itself to landscape photography
After leaving the Navy, he now has time to spend roaming the beautiful countryside around his home village of Garelochhead, just outside Helensburgh, where he lives with his wife and two children.
The glorious scenery of the West of Scotland, as does many of the other areas of the British Isles, ends itself superbly to the panoramic format that Tim has a preference for using, the results can be breathtaking. As with normal film photography, digital images still take time to plan out, waiting for the best light or weather conditions to get just the right moment for the perfect shot.
Butterfly Dreams showcases the work of Gail Berrall. A talented
artist she specialises in
custom butterfly creations. Gail originates in Falkirk but now lives in
the picturescue village of Garelochhead with her two children and
Gail has always loved art and drawing and of course butterflies.
Mixing these two passions has resulted in these colourful canvas

and finished with beads, sequins and rhinestones. They can either be
mounted to be put into a frame or box canvessed. Mounted watervolour
versions are also available.

I visited Liz today and she is "over the moon" with the picture you sent her, I also think it is absolutely beautiful. Liz moved from the Ullapool area when she was 17 to study nursing and she never married nor had children she made Paisley her home. I can assure you I will recommend you to all of my friends.
Thank you again, Penny.
