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. :-)
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

So I returned to posting more recognizable posts of my home land this was taken en-route to a Job in Fort William and we used it in the property schedule – one of the reasons I enjoy property work – I get to travel they pay the petrol :-)
Well firstly let me wish all my fellow bloggers a healthy and Happy New Year. I trust you were all able to spend it with your family or at least have some contact with them. This is a pretty typical shot of Loch Leven with Eilean Munde the famous burial ground clearly visible just below the Pap (the conical hill) – eilean Munde is a small island in Loch Leven, close to Ballachulish. It is the site of a chapel built by St. Fintan Mundus (also known as Saint Fintan Munnu), who travelled here from Iona in the 7th Century. The church was burnt in 1495 and rebuilt in the 16th Century. The last service in the church was held in July, 1653. The island is the site of a graveyard once used by the Stewarts of Ballachulish, the MacDonalds of Glencoe and the Camerons of Callart. The clans shared the island and the maintenance of the graveyard, even when there was conflict between them. (courtesy of Wikipedia).
Probably wont post again until nearer the 20th of the month as Mandy and I are off to Norway for a cruise so high hopes to catch some stunning Norwegian scenery – tbh I am struggling to contain the excitement. Anyway have a lovely and I look forward to viewing you fabulous images throughout the year.
