My Middle Earth by AlisterBenn

I grew up in the Highlands of Scotland and was an avid reader of Tolkein and the Lord of the Rings books. Many days I would walk through these woods, a stick sword in my hands chasing Orcs or dodging black riders.

It was a good childhood and one filled with stories and a full imagination.

I think my inquisitiveness as a photographer stems from those days and I still feel that rush of childhood, even though the age of 50 approaches!

I hope never to lose that inner child.
