Dumfries & Galloway part 1

We went for a trip to Dumfries & Galloway for the weekend even though it was at the beginning of a winter storm. We got a day in before the storm hit.

Thanks for watching!

Visiting Carlingnose point pier, Forth estuary.

After years of looking at this pier online it was time to visit it. Was a great morning at North Queensferry.

This pier was used during the wars and is slowly dissapearing, more info can be found below.

The beaches of Berwick-upon-tweed & Bamburgh.

I have had this trip planned and in my calendar for months. Every aspect was planned ahead of time. Time of sunrise, location of the sun on the horison, where to stand on the beach, tide level, etc. Every thing was planned BUT you cvan’t plan for the weather. You get what you get.

On top of the Forth rail bridge!

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.

Cheers

Scottish highlands day 3, Falls of Foyre

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.

Thank for watching

Scottish highlands day 2, Invermoriston & Whitebridge

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.

Thank you for watching.

Scottish highlands day 2, Plodda falls

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.

Thanks for watching

Scottish highlands day 2, Fort Augustus canal locks

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.

We don’t know we can, till we try.

It’s been a quite a few years in the photography game and it’s really a struggle to make a name for yourself where we have a sea of talent out there. The arrival of more digital cameras and variety of digital devices has increased the overall struggle but as they say the cream will always rise to the top.

I have decided to try and increase my skill set and started down the video route, well we don’t know we can do something till we try. We can either fail or succeed. If we don’t try we will never know.

So this is my start down the route of documenting my trips on film. I think it’ll get better as I spend more time editing the videos, adding sound to it and learning how to use the software to it’s full potential.

I hope you like the episode of our trip to Loch Ness on a photography weekend.

As always, thanks for reading my posts.
