    Looking for a photo....

    Hello all,

    I am looking for a photo, or image (can be drawn) of a highland charge.

    I am trying to find the largest or highest res image possible as it is for a possible tattoo design.

    I am looking for something similar to this, but clearer and larger.



    Credit: Website

    Google image search hasn't turned up much of use so far so am hoping some of the re-enactors out there might have something in a personal collection, with accurate wardrobe!

    I appreciate anyone's help.

    Scott

    Here is a good place to begin your search. I have friends who were in this production. Look down the side lists and watch at some of the other videos.
    Pause the frame..control key-PrintScreen key and paste. Voila!

    Try this site... you may be able to find something you like. Increase or decrease the image with a program that will enlarge pictures without loss of definition. Once you have it in the size you like, then simplify it as a vector diagram. If you want I can help you with this. Just email me the picture, give me the size and let me know if you want shading in this.
    Good luck on this one. It is an ambitious task.
    Lang may your lum reek and a wee mouse never leaves your cupboard with a tear in its eye.

    Thanks everyone so far...

    Still examining pics... I had thought of the Culloden Trailer, however cannot get a clear pic of the highlanders in full charge.

    As for my tatoo, my thoughts (without talking a tattoo artist) are three men on a full sleeve. As an added element I want to see if it is possible for the artist to replace the faces of the men with that of my father, grandfather and great grandfather.

    That is the reason I am looking for large and clear.

    It might be too much to ask, but I guess I will find out when I start to talk to artists. If anyone has any thoughts about my plans, whether they are realistic or not I would be interested in hearing them

    Thanks,

    Scott

    They probably are not nearly what you want, but I have a few amusing shots of my group. I will share them. If my computer illiterate self can figure out how..... There are considerably larger groups out there. I would be surprised if Woodsheal does not have an interesting pic or two. If he does not see this threat it might be worth it to try contacting him.

    Captain Cogle, I have come across photos of your group on the Internet and I have to say I love that green sleeved waistcoat the guy in your group has.

    Ah sorry for re-posting then. John's green coat there was the first Highland Jacket I ever made, I am glad you appreciate it, so does John. Happy to make you one some time if you have the want. Sadly I used up the last of that particular green wool though.
