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 :-)
What a sight moored in early morning mist at very low tide in the Cromarty Firth
en route to a property shoot – simply had to stop
So I have been promising some of my fellow bloggers an update on my new career path with an insight to my day job. For the last year I have almost blogged about the day job, then the day job got in the way. Recently I have been extracting some of the more interesting rooms and locations so I could blog all about it. Well here is the result – feel free to ask anything you fancy and I will try my best to answer them. The following images should give you a good taster for my property work.
The featured image was selected as I am very proud of it – I was in this stunning £750K new build and I was shooting the kitchen diner – it was causing me all sort of challenges due to the placement of the cooker area. Photographically I wanted an image that would say buy me and this is what I came up with. I don’t think I could have delivered that 6 months ago, but my confidence and experience is growing rapidly – so I got arty. I hope you will agree this is an eclectic bunch of shots – which I hope gives you a taster for the world of property. If you have enjoyed the images you may find the links below of interest.
Finally if you are planning on taking your house to the market let me know – I am confident we can make you very proud of your home – enjoy
I hadn’t been on this ferry for years and all of a sudden it has become a regular crossing, so I thought I would share it. This particular shot was taken with a Nikon VR 300mm lens handheld at F8 – I think you agree it is reasonably sharp – I will publish shots of the lighthouse in it’s situation but I am waiting for certain combination of weather before I do. I had intended to publish some of my property work but that will have to wait as I am out and about too early tomorrow – enjoy
I have decided to present this simple image as a solo blog on the basis it was my favorite image of the trip – I saw the boat coming from quiet a distance the contrast with the back drop struck me straight away. I assume the slight blur in the water is on the basis we are passing each other at 15kts.
Anyway a simple sky, stunning backdrop and a red boat a photographic trilogy – enjoy
So Mandy and I have returned safely after rounding the North Cape and parking the ship right up on the border with Russia. We choose this trip primarily to see the Lofoten Islands and hopefully see the Northern Lights. Hurtigruten are so confident you will see the Aurora on these trips – that they offer a free weeks cruise if you fail to view the lights with them. Rather than post a whole gallery of shots, I thought I would post a few individual images to give you a feel for Norway and wrap it all up with a gallery post. Hurtigruten are the Postal and freight boats which steam the Norwegian coast daily some 13 boats in total. In other words it is not run as a cruise more like a working ferry dropping mail and freight as they go – this first shot is to give you a feel for the kind of 2 dimensional scenery you get sailing beyond the Arctic Circle (around 6 days of the trip is within the Arctic Circle). This first shot Norge Post is taken during the Polar Night (where the sun does not rise above the horizon during a 24 hour period) polar nights create a very ethereal light, also note how calm the water is (it was not always this calm) but that is a story for another day.
Rather than depressing you by reflecting the horrible weather which is currently spreading across Scotland – I thought I might share an oldie which has been re-edited utilising my current knowledge – I hope you agree it displays lots of detail on a lovely calm spring day. Somewhat unlike the 70+ mph winds streaking across the country as I post. Keep safe
