About Scotfot

Having spent a number of years in Afghanistan, I thought I would share a few images taken during my time there of this very interesting country and incredibly friendly and polite people.

The photo is me at the top of the Salang Pass 3,400 m (11,154 feet) up in the Hindu Kush. One of the great Himalayan passes. This was the first winter snows. A week later the pass was blocked by heavy snow!

I'm now back in Scotland and I can be found photo blogging most days at

Photography Equipment

A 3MP Olympus then Canon S60, then S80 and now mostly Nikon D80 and Nikon 18-200mm len. Afghanistan is an very dusty country - its not wise to change lenses too often so the 18-200mm is perfect!
Software: Photoshop CS2 and Adobe Bridge and a whole host of shareware and freeware bits and pieces for images and webby stuff.
