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

However for me it was the setting and the ever changing light on the Cathedral which was getting my fuller attention.

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.

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 about 22:00 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 – enjoy!

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

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

Exploding mandala of light Disappearing into darkness A stunning sunburst finish Shatters the horizon Read more: Utopia - Sunburst Finish Lyrics | MetroLyrics  Well I have to admit to having become a little lost in music during this post. I became confused between the album entitled Sunburst Finish by Be Bop Deluxe and the track by Utopia of the same name. Whereevr my influence came from the picture simply demanded that title way I just felt

Exploding mandala of light
Disappearing into darkness

Well I have to admit to having become a little lost in music during this post. I became confused between the album entitled Sunburst Finish by Be Bop Deluxe and the track by Utopia of the same name. Wherever my influence came from, the picture simply demanded to be titled Sunburst Finish – enjoy

I must apologize for such limited participation in the world of blog - but work is distracting me - cannot wait to retire and focus on my photography.... meanwhile I am limited to Moray Firth, which has been no bad thing - forcing me to revisit old haunts and try things - I have been developing my lightroom skills and intend to practice longer exposures all good fun. This was the night after Scouting for Girls recorded their latest Video in Lossiemouth. The tide was on the turn and the sunset had failed to live up to it's billing but then some 15 minutes after sunset we got this - I was quiet happy as I had watched many photographers depart and there was me getting bitten by midges just waiting for something mellow - to enchant you with.

I must apologize for such limited participation in the world of blogging – but work is distracting me – cannot wait to retire and focus on my photography…. meanwhile I am limited to the glorious Moray Firth, which has been no bad thing – forcing me to revisit old haunts and try things – I have been developing my Lightroom skills and I intend to practice longer exposures – all good fun. This was the night after Scouting for Girls recorded their latest Video in Lossiemouth. The tide was on the turn and the sunset had failed to live up to it’s billing but then some 15 minutes after sunset we got this – I was quiet happy watching many of my fellow photographers depart and there was I getting bitten by midges just waiting for something mellow – to enchant you with.

lots of subtle light varied in the way it is has dappled itself unequally across the sky and wet sand - somewhere in Moray - well you cant have all the details or you will be on my doorstep pinching my great sky's
