A Photographic Digital Art Composition.

Dusk over Downton Abbey as it’s called in the TV show but in reality it is Highclere Castle.

Highclere Castle is a country house in the Jacobethan style, with park designed by Capability Brown. The 1,000 acre estate is in the English county of Hampshire, about a mile south of the border with Berkshire. It is the country seat of the Earls of Carnarvon, a branch of the Anglo-Welsh Herbert family.

I’m a Scottish Photographer, Painter and Digital Artist that specializes in Landscapes, Nature, Sunlight and Color.

Tuition at Glasgow School of Art has helped me capture and share my translations of nature’s soul via visual representations of light and color.

What is more inspiring and humbling than watching the sky break like an egg into a full sunset as the water catches fire below it.

Enjoy and Immerse.

    Hi David, I am passionate about photography and love your work, especially the sunset shots. But, going off-subject, I am interested in your name and a possible link to my family. “Fred Hatman” is my writer’s pseudonym, my real name is Howard David Donaldson and my father who was born in Edinburgh was named David Elder Donaldson. “Elder” came from his grandmother Elizabeth Gordon Clark Fulton Elder (Eldest child of Charles Clark Elder and Elizabeth Fulton) who was his grandmother, married to David Donaldson and they lived in Dalkeith, near Edinburgh. I know this is a long shot but I’m wondering if you know whether you are a descendant of “Granny Elder”, as she is known in our part of the fmaily, now in South Africa? Sorry to be a bothe ron this forum but it was the only way I knew of to contact you. Best wishes, Howard
