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.
As we left the 3rd day we were already 15min down the road before we realsied we missed out n the biggest waterfall that was just minutes away form the camp site. We turned around and drove back to see Falls of Foyre, a walk down the hill to two viewing places made it all worth it.
We left Plodda falls and drove back towards Loch Ness. We stopped at Invermoriston to visit the old bridge and see the river flowing between the bridges. Very dangerous location with moss making the rocks very slippery.
A worthy visit on any photography trip into the highlands.
After we left Fort Augustus we travelled to Plodda falls. A waterfall that is absoltely stunning. It has 2 tiers and a old rusty walkway lost in time. I would love to return to this location in the futre and spend more time there and this time take some filters to help with the blown out skies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
