I have been wanting to mess around with noir style editing processes again since publishing the ‘Wreck at Corpach’ so here is the result it only works for certain images and of course I dont want to over do it but I rather like this – enjoy.
As it was such a flat day colour wise this was destined for the mono treatment but the rusting hulks seemed to demand colour – Anyway I shot this from the beach of a breakers Yard with the rig in the background awaiting servicing – enjoy
Well my son Jamie broke me physically by dragging me up Cul Beag in Inverpolly recently. I hadn’t climbed for quiet a while and was jiggered by the time we hit the top. Fortunately we were blessed by this wonderful canvas of light. Inverpolly is definitely my favourite corner of Scotland. In this view you can see Cul Mor on the right and the incomparable Suliven in the distance the various lochs lead towards Enard Bay. I am collapsed in a heap out of shot :-)
One of the highlights of Orkney was this cracking Sea-Stack called Yesnaby Castle. The
blow hole in the bottom left combined with the fact it is made of Old Red Sandstone means the stack wont be like this for ever so worth a trip if you can. I have been a little heavy on the post processing as it was such a bland day – also as I was on honeymoon thought I would be pushing it to hang around for the light to improve – enjoy
Unbelievably still working through Orkney images probably due to the fact if you have edited 80 property shots there is not too much motivation to work any more images that evening – I took several shots at the Ring of Brodgar trying to deliver something fresh – not easy nowadays. Anyway the light was fading fast and rather uninspiring but I liked the fading sky against the shape of the stones – what an intriguing place btw well worth a visit and quite affordable from the mainland.
So back to reality, Honeymoon over back to the day job, gorgeous traditional fisherman’s cottage with a modern twist – and after that hardship I had to struggle around this mundane coastline seeking some appealing location shots – simply cant think why Madonna and Guy Ritchie choose to get married near here. :-)
