Simon shoots the majority of his landscapes in monochrome and in a manner that doesn't generally adhere to the 'traditional' codes and conventions of the genre. This distinguishes his landscape images from the abundant work by the plethora of other skye-based photographers.

For him, the 'landscape' is broadly interpreted to include the drama of the geological environment where it is often competing with man-made structures - and in particular the inter-relationship between the two where they wrestle with each other for 'domination'. The dramatic Scottish cloud structures and transient patterns of light hold a particular fascination for Simon.

Included in the oeuvre are close-up details as well as wide expansive vistas all demonstrating increased depth and drama shaped by the non-conformist composition and a high-contrast monochrome treatment.
