On a distillery tour many years ago a guide told our group that he was going to give us their secret recipe. First, he said, you'll need the basic ingredients; barley, water and yeast. You'll then malt the barley, germinate it, mash it, ferment it and distill it. Then you might distill it again depending on your 'house style' and the custom of your own distillery. Then it's into the barrels for a wee rest, at least three years by law or maybe much longer. Then, voila! Single malt scotch whisky. What could be simpler? This fence detail depicting a still was observed at Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye.
Several years ago a photographer that I hold in high regard introduced me to the concept of foreground interest - he used it to great affect in his photography. It can really help to fill the frame and add depth to a photo.
