Embo Beach near Dornoch

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. :-)

Skara Brae a Honeymoon View

Three posts in March and only one April is hardly prolific blogging but I had a really good excuse – I got married earlier this month which you have probably worked out from the title. We had a very low key wedding as simple as we could make it, then dashed off to Orkney for a week. So I am afraid you will have to suffer a few Orkney views as I try to get back in to the swing of blogging. Many thanks for the positive response to my last sunset post I am glad you liked it.

Skara Brae /ˈskærə ˈbr/ is a stone-built Neolithic settlement, located on the Bay of Skaill on the west coast of Mainland, the largest island in the Orkney archipelago of Scotland. It consists of eight clustered houses, and was occupied from roughly 3180 BCE2500 BCE. Europe’s most complete Neolithic village, Skara Brae gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status as one of four sites making up “The Heart of Neolithic Orkney.”aOlder than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids, it has been called the “Scottish Pompeii” because of its excellent preservation.[1] (Wikipedia)

Scurdie Ness Distance Mono

I thought it was about time I posted another from the Scottish Lighthouse Series – this is Scurdie Ness, Ferryden near Montrose. As you will see I am trying to place the lighthouses in their landscape versus close up detail so this is a few miles down the coast – hopefully you will walk through the gate and along the coast to the lighthouse :-) enjoy

Intriguing Calm Cromarty

I try not to repeat a subject for a few posts but I got this shot today again on the way to a job in Invergordon – anyway this is the result – I wanted to wait another 45 mins or so until the mist would fully reveal the Deep Energy (see previous post) in the background of the Oil Rig but instead you will have to look closely. Enjoy Spring :-)
