Scurdie Ness Lighthouse

 Purchase this Lighthouse here

This is the second in my Lighthouse series (Summer) – this is Scurdie Ness at Ferryden near Montrose. Scurdie Ness was one of the first I saw as a child due to the fact we spent several holidays in Montrose at Caravan Parks – great memories of golden beaches, Fish and Chips and a tough wee Golf Course – where I also entered my first Jnr Golf Competition in the Montrose Open (nervous times). I do love returning to haunts from my childhood and exploring much further than I ever got th chance to do back then. Enjoy

I have started in earnest to capture all the Scottish Mainland Lighthouses and I am up to about 15 or so currently - I will start with the mainland and move on to the Islands and finish with those off shore that require boat trips - I fully expect to photograph them all several times - I am not limiting myself to creating a record but more an artistic diary maybe even eventually a seasonal shot for each lighthouse - so this not so much a big project but a huge one more than likely a lifetime project - keep watching. I have of course photographed Covesea (my home lighthouse to death) many many times. I have shots of Covesea in every light I have witnessed and loads of different angles. You can always find a new angle however and this was a real scorcher of a day. Enjoy

One of the hardships of shooting property for a living is the fact that you have to travel to photograph the properties. Unfortunately for me I had to head up towards Kyle of Tongue (Mandy and I even managed to turn it in to an overnighter - benefits of freelance) where I found this magical combination of a rustic abandonment and wrecked boat - throw in a dark sky and  light over my shoulder and voilà - enjoy

This is the famous Jacobite Steam Train on the Fort William to Mallaig Line (also known to some as the Hogwart's Express from the Harry Potter Movies). Although the weather wasn't the best I was set up to include the mini Lighthouse on the right and Ben Nevis in the background - definately a good recce shot for a better day (works quite well in mono but we shall keep that for another day) enjoy.

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.

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

Hopeman Panorama

A glorious day today on the Moray Coast, the shot I was composing was simply not going to happen with a standard 24mm lens – so I decided to take a panorama of 5 images – Hopeman beach is more than just the coloured huts it is a rock-pool extravaganza with the tidal pools flushed twice daily it is a lovely clean beach with great dunes and protected by wonderful yellow gorse.

The blog has also passed a couple of barriers recently with 80,000 views and 800 followers onwards towards 100K :-). I value all your support and encouragement and in return I love seeing your images too. Moreover I get to steal your ideas and destinations (at least in my dreams). Thanks for watching Scott

This a haunt from my childhood - I was doing seeing my parents an we had a wee run down the Ayreshire coast. Dunure and Turnberry were my too stops. A right blast from the past. Anyway I climbed out at great risk on to these rocks to get this rather dramatic angle and the sun graced me with it's presence - enjoy

This is an unpublished sequence of 4 images all taken during the same day at Loch Duich – it was a pretty miserable day but an ethereal moody feel was generated  by the low cloud and perfectly calm water offering some lovely reflections. I did publish another 2 shots from this day Crash Landed a Hunter’s Moon and the Five Sisters of Kintail  (both collecting a good few views). I have decided on reflection when you add these four unpublished images it may well have been one of my most productive days photography on the basis I hope for one good shot a day. Anyway I will let you decide – enjoy

I thought I would offer a compare and contrast of the same view from different locations - The first image was taken a few weeks ago and the second back in 2010 when I first moved to the Highlands. I pass this view every time I head out to Inverpolly - I usually stop and in fat I intend to stop on each occasion and see how many variations I get.

I love the natural leading lines of Ardmair Bay lots of light textures, cloud shadows and of course the thin layer of cloud perched on the top of Coigach.

 

Beinn Mor Coigach

This was taken back in 2010, I didn’t know the area at all, this is down on the beach at Ardmair, with the lines drawing you towards Coigach – I liked the wet and dry stones separated by the seaweed line, whipping you round to the mountain topped by a dusting of snow.

Well what can I say – I know it’s a cheesy shot but hey Instagram liked it loads :-) so I have high hopes of the WordPress community. I will work hard to catch up with all your blogs over the coming weeks but pace of work is dictating my blogging activity. Anyway this is classic postcard Scotland – I’ll be honest I have never seen Torridon basking in such wicked sunshine. That said although this is a little chocolate box for me I hope that I have conveyed the cold wind in the choppy sea – and more importantly guys the clocks are about to change which means spending lots of time outdoors :-)

This was very unusual from a weather point of view the sun was almost completely unimpeded by clouds – none of the traditional standing around with the shot set up waiting for the elusive light. The sun shone all day but it was blowing around 25 Kt. and damn cold but when you are rewarded with this quality of view quiet frankly I didn’t care. Normally I am happy with one shot from a trip like this but I am hopeful I may have 4 or 5 – keep watching

Lossiemouth Landscape by iPhone 5S

 

This shot did rather well on Instagram last week so I was interested if it was purely down to the fact that I was viewing it on a small mobile phone screen and wondered if it would survive the greater test of a blogpost.  I exported the image to my computer levelled the horizon and cropped it to the same shape as I posted it on IG and that was it. The colour is pretty good – texture is visible in the sand ripples out to about 25m and the town is about 1.5 miles back down the beach so I wasn’t surprised that it struggled with the shadow detail in the town. All in all, it is a pretty faithful reproduction of a perfect day unfortunately we had the dog so I didn’t have the DSLR to provide a comparison shot, thought’s?

I cannot deny that whilst watching the story of the extreme weather unfold in many parts of the UK leading to, what is for many a horrible nightmare, I wish anyone suffering from the flooding and high winds that spring is on it's way. Fortunately we in Moray have been blessed by much kinder conditions. As i was selecting a blog post I realised that many of my recent images have reflected those milder conditions which we have been experiencing. Therefore - I decided to  attempt to reflect my feelings at this point of the year when the nights are drawing out and we all look forward to the clocks changing and areal sense that Spring is in the air - unfortunately this image simply says "cauld"

Rattray Point, is a headland in Buchan, Aberdeenshire, on the north-east coast of Scotland. The dunes at Rattray Head beach can be up to 75 feet (23 m) high and stretch 17 miles (27 km) from St Combs to Peterhead. The 120 feet (37 m) Lighthouse  was built in 1895 by the engineering brothers  Stevenson David Alan Stevenson and Charles Alexander Stevenson. In February 1982 it became unmanned and self-working.[2][3] The lighthouse is accessible by way of a causeway that is usually underwater being only visible at low tide. It is wide enough for a vehicle to cross. Remains of several shipwrecks can still be seen on the beach. (wikipedia)

The last of Scotland's fishing fleet (we are an island nation) rest up - constrained by the terms of the European Union Fishery Agreement.  I do hope all signatory nations are as well behaved. It is a hugely contentious subject - but surely a policy which will preserve our fishing stocks for the future. The fishing industry must reduce waste and throwing of overcatch back to the sea is madness. Anyway i will jump off my environmental soapbox and get back back to the art. I have tweaked this in Lightroom and Nik Software to bring out the detail amongst the boats in what was a twilight image. I hope the tweaking is not too much - I don't personally enjoy overcooked images - enjoy hopefully.

First Light

Image

According to records, the original light at Kinnaird Head was established on 1 December 1787. A lantern was set at a height of 120 feet above the sea on a corner of a tower of an old castle in Fraserburgh. Fixed lights only were shown at this stage, produced by arrays of lamps burning whale oil, each of them backed by its own parabolic reflector made up of a multitude of facets of silvered mirror-glass set on a plaster mould. Kinnaird Head was the most powerful light of its time, and contained 17 reflectors arranged in 3 horizontal tiers. In clear weather according to Murdoch Downie’s New Pilot of 1791, the light could be seen 12 or 14 miles off. Two ‘firsts’ for Kinnaird Head were (a) the first Lighthouse built in Scotland by the Commissioners of Northern Lights (founded in 1786) and (b) the first Radio Beacon in Scotland was introduced in 1929 at Kinnaird Head.

Invergordon and Nigg Bay have serviced numerous Oil and Gas Rigs during the North Sea Oil boom years - which naturally followed by a decline however more recently with the renewable's market - the energy sector is generating work again so this image hopefully shows there is beauty in all things even industry and just perhaps we are slowly heading out of recession.

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)
