Three shots all taken in and around Lochcarron on the west coast of Scotland. One is across the light another with the light behind and the third in to the sun. Each image is quiet different. Enjoy

62005 Lord of the Isles

 

This is a must share for all steam train enthusiasts – “The Lord of the Isles” 62005 cooling down after hard days works – steam can still be observed coming from the boiler, the sun is clearly dropping over my right shoulder as the shadow is cast across the engine I have to admit I thought the smell as she cooled was wonderful. It was a perfectly calm  evening blues skys – honestly does it get any better. Definitely one of the highlights  of the year and my employers were paying the fuel. Hell I love being a semi professional semi retired photographer.

The Lord of the Isles – 62005

A little after Sunset

 

A Little after Sunset can be purchased from Photo4Me

I have always preferred  post sunset light as it is far less intense allowing the sensor to cope much better with the myriad of colour. I secretly love the fact that most people dissapear once the sun has dropped not realising that the best is yet to come.

That said I am conscious that the sky alone is simply not enough to whet the appetite you need some foreground interest – here I was spoiled by both the reflection and the small rockpool. We have had a week in Skye  since my last post (keep watching for the shots)

I have also been without broadband for nearly 14 days so I am looking forward to being inspired by all your blog posts so the future is bright the future is Orange :-)

Busy Busy Busy - I have been trying to post for nearly 4 days but continuously get distracted - the last 3 evenings we were BBQing which means snoring on the sofa by 9pm :-) Anyway last week we went along to Elgin Cathedral (what a setting) to watch Macbeth - there was atotal of 5 actors covering all the parts - a very impressive line fluff free performance - quiet brilliant. However for me it was the setting and the ever changing light on the Cathedral which was attracting me. Annoyingly it was about 30 mins after I took this it got really good - but I decided I couldn't get out my seat again out of respect for the performers. - Enjoy

Macbeth “live” Elgin Cathedral

I thought I would just quickly share this before abandoning the PC and telephone conversations with HMRC to spend 4-5 hours in the Lossiemouth sun. This was taken last night with a .6 ND Grad filter . According to all the magazine articles it is a landscape photographers bread and butter requirement. It certainly kept the sky under check and reduced post processing time which must be good.  Anyway as I said sunshine here I come.

A favourite place of mine to catch a sunset - simple colours and shapes produce an inner calm - whilst sunsets may be out of fashion I for one cannot resist ~ enjoy

A Gentle Departure

It has been a while since I shared a Lossiemouth image with you - this is nothing special compositionally - however it does for me perfectly reflect the colours often seen on the Moray Coast - subtle hues of colour the very essence of Lossiemouth - Pale Aqua - enjoy
