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.

Yesnaby Castle

One of the highlights of Orkney was this cracking Sea-Stack called Yesnaby Castle. The

blow hole in the bottom left combined with the fact it is made of Old Red Sandstone means the stack wont be like this for ever so worth a trip if you can. I have been a little heavy on the post processing as it was such a bland day – also as I was on honeymoon thought I would be pushing it to hang around for the light to improve – enjoy

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.

Embo Beach near Dornoch

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. :-)

Scurdie Ness Distance Mono

I thought it was about time I posted another from the Scottish Lighthouse Series – this is Scurdie Ness, Ferryden near Montrose. As you will see I am trying to place the lighthouses in their landscape versus close up detail so this is a few miles down the coast – hopefully you will walk through the gate and along the coast to the lighthouse :-) enjoy

Intriguing Calm Cromarty

I try not to repeat a subject for a few posts but I got this shot today again on the way to a job in Invergordon – anyway this is the result – I wanted to wait another 45 mins or so until the mist would fully reveal the Deep Energy (see previous post) in the background of the Oil Rig but instead you will have to look closely. Enjoy Spring :-)

Deep Energy - Technip

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
