Industrial Light & Magic

Well as we head towards the long dark nights of the Scottish Autumn - I thought this was an appropriate shot. Invergordon and Nigg Bay have serviced numerous Oil and Gas Rigs during the North Sea Oil boom years - which naturally followed by a decline however more recently with the renewable's market - the energy sector is generating work again so this image hopefully shows there is beauty in all things even industry and just perhaps we are slowly heading out of recession.

  1. No idea why but this somehow makes me think of…tadaa – Christmas! There is something about the combination of lights and the almost surreal blueness… What I am trying to say is – BEAUTIFUL, Scott πŸ™‚

  2. Not like you to post an industrial image, but I like it. Industry is an integral part of human society and photographically and artistically can provide an interesting contrast to the natural landscapes they sit in. We have to live with it and may as well see what beauty can be found in it.

    1. no it’s not but as I said to David above we are not really surrounded by it. Aberdeen Harbour is probably the closest to mind – anyway I liked the whole area and have a few plans for the future – lets see what comes next.

    1. me too – this has been a hugely challenging period for just about everyone – on the other hand it was borne out of the excess spending of many nations – effectively living beyond their means – I am sure we have learned our lesson. A 80s star filter may have been fun here

  3. Were you really on a Fungi Foray? Cromarty one of my favourite spots, great village.

    I wish more folk took the time to explore the Industrial Landscape (Seascape) then we would have more great shots like yours.

    1. One is guilty of digressing – going a little off piste – I have shot quite a few buildings/architecture but never really spent a huge amount of time exploring industrial scenes – always fancied the refinery at Grangemouth which is some sight day or night – and some part of Glasgow’s industrial past but that’s for the future

    1. Yes I agree , this my second rig shit the first was a ling kens from cromarty in winter withseveral all grouped together, I would love to get closer in to do some shape n texture shots but thats parked until I can propperly apply my time. Great to see the yard busy and a regular flow of rigs downbthe Firth
