The majesty and drama of Scotland's rugged landscape has been captured in a striking exhibition at Glasgow's Skypark.
Taken by award-winning photographer Damian Shields, the exhibit features everything from the dramatic clouds that crown Glencoe, to the light glittering off wet rock on the side of Stob nan Cabar.
A former student of the Glasgow School of Art, Damian has won awards both nationally and internationally for his images - many of which he says are inspired by his childhood roamings.
"When I was a kid a lot of my time was taken up getting out into the landscape and exploring," explains Damian.
"On the weekends a bunch of us would get together, go up into the hills and just get lost.
"It is also to do with your influences - for me a lot of it is to do with painters because I grew up in a very artistic home. My father is an art teacher, as was my mother’s father."
"These influences growing up sneak back into what you do, what you like and what you are trying to pursue," adds Damian.
"There are so many different threads that seep into all these decisions that you make and in a way that affect your output.
"When you start to think about it, it is not just about pointing a camera and pressing a button - it is about a lifetime of influences and things that have gone on in your life that affect all the decisions you make in the run up to your shoot."
Now working full time as a graphic artist for the Herald and Times newspapers in Glasgow, Damian still gravitates to the west and north west regions of Argyll, the Trossachs, and Highlands in his free time and happily describes himself as an adventurer "on the road less travelled" - no matter how dreich that Scottish road may be.
"The more emotionally charged stuff for me is when I feel like the elements have aligned perfectly," said Damian.
"You sometimes get these moments where you get a glimpse of something. You think the clouds are perfectly aligned and the sun spaciously cuts through and you see how things were composed for you.
"For me, those are the happiest moments, the moments where you have been handed a gift."
Damian's exhibition is open to the public to until November, 24, 2015 at Glasgow's Skypark.
