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

Dunvegan Noir

I have been wanting to mess around with noir style editing processes again since publishing the ‘Wreck at Corpach’ so here is the result it only works for certain images and of course I dont want to over do it but I rather like this – enjoy.

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 :-)

Break on Through WM

Not my usual type of shot but I was at the Run for Colour with my wife at the weekend and got drawn to the colour stations – might even try this in the Camera Club this season
I have a few thoughts about cropping and composition but would welcome any feedback.

The Run for Colour was a fund raising vehicle for the Highland Hospice – you can still donate if you wish here is the link

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.
