Water Under The Bridge

Tay Bridge Mono2

Out for a walk in Dundee one lunchtime I decided to go to City Quay for a look. I saw this view of the underneath of the Tay Road Bridge and I liked the symmetry of the legs of the bridge receding into the distance.

Monifieth After The Storm

Monifieth after storm

After the long spell of good weather we’ve had, the last few days have been wet and stormy, yesterday in particular. I was at the beach yesterday with Max and the waves were crashing up the beach. We were at the beach for a walk tonight and although it was mostly dry the sky was still dark after the storm. Crossing the foot bridge over railway line I took this photograph of the houses and the still moody sky.

Harrogate Monochrome

Harrogate mono

Harrogate street scene. We were in Leeds for a few days over the summer, Susan and Tom were going to a cricket match at Headingly, so I decided to have a day out in Harrogate on the train. We had been for a walk in the gardens and a wander round the shops and we had stopped for a seat to get our bearings and decide what to do next. This is the street scene from where we were sitting. I converted it to monochrome in Lightroom to remove some of the distracting colours.

Carrbridge Old And New

Carrbridge Tom

This week instead of my images we have two photographs taken by my son Tom when we were on holiday in Aviemore. The first is of the old pack horse bridge at Carrbridge. Tom took this one in portrait format to include the nice cloud above.

Cairngorm Summer

Happy Train

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 focused perfectly on the individual ink droplets making up the picture. The focal length is 50mm.

Sun Voyager

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!
