Still Buckie WM

Anyway I thought to myself I better get a blogpost up or my fellow bloggers will be thinking he has sold his camera gear – this was a lovely calm day with mixed light which I captured when it was just how I like it calm warm and low sun. Hand held what can I say – enjoy

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 :-)

Orkney ~ Broch of Gurness

To truly appreciate this wonder it has to be an aerial perspective

Archaeological excavations in the early 20th century showed that the village began between 500 and 200BC

Brochs are unique to Scotland. There are over 500 of them, the vast majority spread throughout the northern and western Highlands and the islands. Many of these tall circular towers stood alone, but in Orkney they were generally surrounded by sizeable villages. The broch village at Gurness is one of the most impressive. It has also been archaeologically excavated, thus providing a more vivid impression of life in the Scottish Iron Age than other comparable sites.

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.
