Well I have only managed 4 posts this month - in the past that would have phased me. I have been focussing on sorting out our home and carpeting has been the task of the moment. My thinking is if I can get our house how I want it then that will fre  my mind to be creative and get out and about. Meanwhile I continue to shoot property for a posh estate agent and I am enjoying that immensely much more than I thought II would. Anyway thank you for sticking with my sporadic appearances - as always - enjoy

Well I have only managed 4 posts this month – in the past that would have phased me. I have been focusing on sorting out our home and carpeting has been the task of the moment. My thinking is if I can get our house how I want it, then that will free my mind to be creative and get out and about. Meanwhile I continue to shoot property for a posh estate agent and I am enjoying that immensely, much more than I thought I would. Anyway thank you for sticking with my sporadic appearances – as always – enjoy

This lighthouse stands directly across the Moray Firth from Covesea (which you have seen here many times) This was recce trip before I return for classic shot during the Spring - watch this space. The loss of sixteen vessels in the Moray Firth storm in November 1826 brought many applications for lights on Tarbat Ness or Covesea Skerries, and the former was given priority as it had been named in 1814, and was regarded by the Caledonian Canal Commissioners as important to that undertaking. Tarbat Ness Lighthouse was engineered by Robert Stevenson and the light was first exhibited on 26 January 1830. James Smith of Inverness was the contractor responsible for the building of the lighthouse. The lighthouse tower is the third tallest in Scotland (North Ronaldsay and Skerryvore being taller) and bears two distinguishing broad red bands. (Northern Lighthouse Board)

A Bridge too far (Kessock)

A Bridge to Far (Kessock)

The Beauly Firth becalmed, In the distance is the Kessock Bridge which replaced the ferry service back in 1982. Today’s traveller to the northern Highlands will often only see Inverness in passing. The A9 trunk road carrying traffic from Perth and all points south descends from the summit of Drumossie Muir and sweeps round the eastern side of Inverness. The roundabout close to the stands of Inverness Caledonian Thistle Football Club briefly interrupts progress, but beyond it you cross the Beauly Firth to the Black Isle via the Kessock Bridge. (Undiscovered Scotland). I loved the reflection but also the space and serenity.

Sail with me – Clachnaharry Sea Lock

Okay some changes then I have changed the name of the blog - have no fears your subscriptions etc are all intact - I thought this particular photograph suitable for this change as it is the sea lock which is located at the junction where the Moray Firth and Beauly Firth merge and via this lock you can enter the Great Glen and ultimately on to Loch Ness the home of Nessie. In summary it is a crossroads just like me. One journey end and another begin's ...

Some changes then – I have altered the name of the blog – have no fears your subscriptions etc are all intact – in changing the name I am aiming to build my Google SEO. I thought this particular photograph suitable for this change as it is the sea lock which is located at the junction where the Moray Firth and Beauly Firth merge and you can enter the Great Glen onwards ultimately to Loch Ness (home of Nessie). In summary the lock is at a crossroads just like myself. One journey ends and another begin’s …

Burghead – Pinky Blue Hue

I have posted over 500 images here on WordPress most are dynamic wild Scotland with some fantastic light. This image however is probably at the other end of the spectrum - an underwhelming subtle hue of pink and blue on an abnormally calm summer's evening. Take time to look at the subtle hue and reflections within this almost Turner like effect.
