Ruthven Barracks Acros 100

Ruthven Barracks near Kingussie. Taken last week on our summer week in Aviemore. We always aim to visit Ruthven Barracks at some point when we are there. This image is taken from the stable block at the back of the barracks.

Loch Morlich

We are on holiday in Aviemore this week. We went for a walk round Loch Morlich with Max and I saw this view looking over the Scots pine forest towards the mountains.

Porta 6 macro

This week I was trying out some macro photography using a set of extension tubes I got. This is some detail from a Portugese wine bottle label, a happy fellow driving a train. It is surprising just how close I could get to the bottle and the camera still focussed perfectly on the individual ink droplets making up the picture. The focal length is 50mm.

Reykjavik sculptureI spent time this week sorting out my collection of photographs and sorting them into some kind of order. It is good to look back and this weeks photograph is one from our trip to Iceland in October 2017. It is the iconic sculpture on the shore in Reykjavik. It was surprisingly quiet when we passed and I was able to capture this photograph without a tourist in sight. Maybe the cold was keeping them away!

V&A DiscoveryV&A and Discovery in the evening sun. Taken through the fencing surrounding the site as it isn’t yet open. It’ll be interesting to go back to photograph when the V&A is open.

Dighty 2

I am doing a diploma in photography and I thought I’d try out some stuff I’ve learned about exposure. I was out with Max for a walk in the woods and saw this little clearing with the sun shining on it. I exposed for the highlights and the shadows turned out fine, needing just a little bit of adjustment in Lightroom.
