I thought I would just quickly share this before abandoning the PC and telephone conversations with HMRC to spend 4-5 hours in the Lossiemouth sun. This was taken last night with a .6 ND Grad filter . According to all the magazine articles it is a landscape photographers bread and butter requirement. It certainly kept the sky under check and reduced post processing time which must be good.  Anyway as I said sunshine here I come.

I thought I would just quickly share this before abandoning the PC and telephone conversations with HMRC to spend 4-5 hours in the Lossiemouth sun. This was taken last night about 22:00 with a .6 ND Grad filter . According to all the magazine articles it is a landscape photographers bread and butter requirement. It certainly kept the sky under check and reduced post processing time which must be good. Anyway as I said sunshine here I come – enjoy!

A favourite place of mine to catch a sunset - simple colours and shapes produce an inner calm - whilst sunsets may be out of fashion I for one cannot resist ~ enjoy

It has been a while since I shared a Lossiemouth image with you - this is nothing special compositionally - however it does for me perfectly reflect the colours often seen on the Moray Coast - subtle hues of colour the very essence of Lossiemouth - Pale Aqua - enjoy

Exploding mandala of light
Disappearing into darkness
A stunning sunburst finish
Shatters the horizon

Well I have to admit to having become a little lost in music during this post. I became confused between the album entitled Sunburst Finish by Be Bop Deluxe and the track by Utopia of the same name. Wherever my influence came from, the picture simply demanded to be titled Sunburst Finish – enjoy

I must apologize for such limited participation in the world of blog - but work is distracting me - cannot wait to retire and focus on my photography.... meanwhile I am limited to Moray Firth, which has been no bad thing - forcing me to revisit old haunts and try things - I have been developing my lightroom skills and intend to practice longer exposures all good fun. This was the night after Scouting for Girls recorded their latest Video in Lossiemouth. The tide was on the turn and the sunset had failed to live up to it's billing but then some 15 minutes after sunset we got this - I was quiet happy as I had watched many photographers depart and there was me getting bitten by midges just waiting for something mellow - to enchant you with.

I must apologize for such limited participation in the world of blogging – but work is distracting me – cannot wait to retire and focus on my photography…. meanwhile I am limited to the glorious Moray Firth, which has been no bad thing – forcing me to revisit old haunts and try things – I have been developing my Lightroom skills and I intend to practice longer exposures – all good fun. This was the night after Scouting for Girls recorded their latest Video in Lossiemouth. The tide was on the turn and the sunset had failed to live up to it’s billing but then some 15 minutes after sunset we got this – I was quiet happy watching many of my fellow photographers depart and there was I getting bitten by midges just waiting for something mellow – to enchant you with.

Overwhelmed

Not a great deal to say hear - simply a powerful light show amplified through the still reflection of an ebbing tide.

Here we are in the depths of winter and I realised I have not generated a good old fashioned sunset since mid November - now there is a reason for that of course (I am working when the light departs) but I was down the beach last weekend when this happened and I thought you may like this little chase of light......
