3 WM

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

Painting with Light WM

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 :-)

Yesnaby Castle

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

Brodgar Silhouette WM

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.

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)
