3 Days in Glencoe

I packed my bags and went Glamping in Glencoe. We had 2 days of rain and only a short window of Sun which was the morning we left.

With all the rain we were in for a treat with waterfalls everywhere. I found 7 and that was just the tip of the Iceberg. I will need to go back again to go to the biggest one I didn’t have time to get.

Always look both ways when taking photos

I was taking photos of the Forth road bridge and didn’t take make notice of the Forth rail bridge. It’s been taken to death BUT when I turned around I got this image.

Untitled_HDR2-fbI loaded it up on Viewbug and got into that month’s featured photos.
My best results so far on a single image. 50 peer awards and 120 likes as well as having 6 Photo Trifecta awards.

The actual image I was there for that night was this one.

City secrets

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.

A combination of the 5 bridge legs under the railway bridge at the river.
Combined-fbI was playing around with long exposure and traffic. This was a post office truck going across my shot.
I used two photos over each other to end up with a split of both.

Leith walk

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.

Long sea front exposure on winter’s morning

These photos were taken at Torness nuclear power station just East of Edinburgh during a windy and stormy winter’s morning.

I took these photos a year ago and I’m very proud of them. My 1st attempt at sea waves and long exposure.

I did think I have posted them before but I can’t see them on here.
