Thanks to Barnado’s children charity we were able to buy tickets to go up the Forth rail bridge and see the world from 110meter up. It was a quick 30min experience but so worth it, I hope they will be doing this again. I know there is talks about making a tourist attraction on top of the Forth rail bridge, I hope this goes ahead.
On the 2nd day we visted a few sites starting off at Fort Augustus. This was my 1st visit and I will be going back to revisit this place. It has so many potentials, won’t even go into the potential of a great drone video from Loch Ness up the Locks, maybe one day if I can get there early enough that there’s no people around.
Anyway wihout further ado, I hope you like the next vlog from the highlands trip.
Finally gave in and started a YouTube channel, still work in progress and I guess like my photograph with time and experience it will get better. I’m not a person that likes to be recorded so I will have to think of a way I will do this without getting myself caught or heard on camera. I have a few good ideas already and I have a friend who is very good with project planning and storyboards, so we’ll see what happens.
Anyway here’s a short video of images captured while walking over the new Forth Queensferry crossing which opens today for traffic.
We should investigate our cities better when it comes to it’s history and hidden secrets. I only had glimpses of Glasgow’s hidden gems. I was one day there for a specific reason and had a few hours spare. This was the result of a walk I took trying to find the gems.
We visited Edinburgh Leith walk in February (sorry about the absence, been a tad busy with life things).
Initial idea was to get some nice photos and this changed as we went further into the night into a Steelwool spinning session. I learnt to always have a bottle of water on hand as I nearly set the old rotten wood on fire on the bridge. A large ember got into a crack and I couldn’t get to it, a bottle of water saved the day or should I say the old bridge.
Thanks for the visit Photographs by Jacques le Roux
I saw a photos which tweaked my interest and I knew I have to go back to visit a site I have been at a few times BUT with a new goal in mind.
It was a misty evening and I phoned someone I know who lives close to the location, he confirmed it’s misty there. I jumped in the car and drive the 30 min and arrived very disappointed as the mist didn’t look great at all. As I have learned with photography don’t give up to quickly.
I walked down and spend the rest of the evening getting these photos.
