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.
Thanks for visiting.
If you don’t get out then you won’t get any images. Sounds logic right? NO excuses, challenge yourself to at least once a month get out and take photos.
Known about this place for a while, seen images of this location numerous times but didn’t know where it was till by chance I came across a proper guide to find it.
So got up yesterday at 0420 and straight to the spot, had to bring out the mountain goat in myself to go down the stairs. I did buy a 30meter rope and some proper waist height waders. Didn’t need the rope as there were some already in place but waders came in handy. Water was only thigh high but a great investment for the future.
So here’s a few examples of the morning.

I was supposed to join a camera club I’m part of but I couldn’t make it. So I decided to pop outside and get a few weeds for some macro shots. Got a bokeh background on the computer screen and off I went.
Hope you like it.

I have joined Gurushots a while back to gauge where I’m at with my photos. I do like the overall game and how it works, I don’t like the new Boost function and feel it’s unfair and once again pay to play will beat nonpaying folks. Pay to play has a unfair advantage but hen they do pay for it and keep the doors open BUT Gurushots does let you earn free Boosts as well so you do have the opportunity to compete at times. I buckled and bought 10 boost in the end but doubt I would like to do this very often, at least I have a the chance to be on level playing field.

Do try it, it’s a bit of fun and give you a good idea which of your photos people like.
6 days to go and I hit 10th place in the single photos over 6000 people’s entries (up to 4 photos per entrance). Fingers crossed I can stay in top 20.
Old competitions I did alright in.
Out of 14 000 photos entered I was 4th in the end and of the 3500 photographer I was 36th.

A day out in the city as a tourist.
Photos were taken in July 2011 with my Canon 450D
This bench makes me think of playing cards being shuffled.
Edinburgh harbour. I love this old quay, I wish I could see the statue at the end of it.
The wonders what humans can do!
