A Mirror of Mellow

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.

    1. they eat me alive and enjoy doing so – in North America its “no see um’s” and in the south of England “thunderbugs” – I hate em all

  1. The man complains about being ‘limited’ to the Moray Firth! Another great sunset and with luck a few more to come. As for midges (an occupational hazard) but at one time they always said that they were limited to the West coast. In fact they used that as an explanation for houses not having gardens of any merit on the north west coast whilst the east houses boasted gardens to be proud off (the logic being on the west the midges made it either too frustrating to work in or sit in of an evening). But a good artist always has to suffer for their art…so they say -now where is that Jungle Juice!

    1. ha ha Jungle juice nothing works for me…. you are so right about the Moray Coast – I am spoiled, but initially I didn’t think so – when I seen images of the light in Fife I was often envious – especially as the the Moray coast runs east to west – but as have grown to understand the light up here – I know how fortunate I am – lots of diversity – and as my local knowledge grows so does my confidence.

  2. Glad you stayed, Scott, surely the midge bites were worth it! It’s good to try new things, you never know what will come out of it. I get bored of sunsets because everybody does them but I like this a lot. The fuzzy feeling I usually only get when I watch people paint their lovely pictures….I can feel it here.

    1. I do like the after light but there is not always sufficient light intensity to make it interesting and it can all appear too dark – it was the reflection which only captured the good light which was drawing me, moving amongst the slippy seaweed
