A personal project. A glass of whisky. With ice. Natural light. Minimal post-processing. Shoot what you love. Be willing to play and see things anew. There are constellations and worlds in the tiniest places if we’re willing to see them. Also helps if you don’t drink too much of the subject.


  1. Well done David, you lift us out of our fog and help us see more clearly. What a wonderful assortment of images and your articles are so meaningful for me thank you for all you do.

    1. Wow David,
      That was a while ago, but it’s statements like that, that captured my interest, backed up by the images,

      1. Author

        Always nice to hear from you, Tom. Thank you. I trust you and yours are well.

  2. Very cool. Who got to drink all of the whiskey when you were finished? 🙂

  3. The ice cubes are making great effects, have you tried making ice cubes out of distilled water to get a clearer cube?

  4. I have a dozen shots of vodka/lightly cranberried….just love, love, love the color. Yes, I agree, catching the light playing on the ice, the condensation on the glass…..just whiles away the time. 🙂

    1. This time a Canadian Rye called Dark Horse. Nice summer drink on ice. My usual is anything peaty and interesting from Islay.

  5. sometimes it actually helps me to drink a little too much of the subject. 😉

    and btw – just finished a beautiful anarchy…thank you for the inspiration and tools to empower my life and creativity.

  6. Lovely abstract images….. rich tones and colors. I like the square format as well, suits the subject well.

    Eh…. how much of the subject did you have?? 😉

  7. Hi David, great project and very inspiring photos!
    This fall i travel to islay for a week and visit six of the great distilleries of this little island. Mostly for tasting but i’m the photographer of our litlle crowd and will make some kind of a “taste, art, slow down life and craftmanship today” project out of this days. Maybe i should bring some bottles of Bruichladdich specialities with me in the case you stand before my door some day and want a drink 😉

    best regards

  8. These are lovely, the color, the light, the lines. Pure play. I easily forget how important that is but often get some of my best work that way.

  9. Yet another reminder that there is always something to photography right in front of you and you can make it as beautiful as you want it to be!

  10. Great idea! Great project! There’s no end to the journey. 🙂
