Cathkin Brae

Breaking the ‘rules’ a little bit here, but I quite like this pic anyway! This is late evening at Cathkin Brae on the south eastern edge of Glasgow, with the Big Wood (best name for a wood ever) in the middle ground and the sun setting behind it, spreading its light all over the grass fields that flow all the way down to East Kilbride. Lovely.

Clyde Valley and Kennishead

Had a lovely wander about Rouken Glen Park yesterday with friends. First time I’ve been to the park since I was about 6 or 7 years old!

Thurso Beach

Amazingly these pictures were taken around 11 o’ clock at night, quite a while after the sun had set on that particular night.

The Bay of Skaill ‘standing stones’

While in Orkney we ventured down to Skara Brae, the 5,000 year old neolithic site not far from Stromness.

Kirkwall Cathedral II W


Kirkwall Cathedral A couple of pics from a recent trip to Orkney. This is St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall. It was very busy with tourists (myself included), many of whom had came from a massive cruise ship dock outside Kirkwall Harbour. It was difficult to get shots without any people in them, especially since I had to use a tripod. I think these ones turned out not bad, though. The first is probably a bit…

Reflections of decay

A nice shot of reflections in St Peter’s Seminary, Cardross, Dunbartonshire. This is the second time I’ve explored this old building.

Shipwreck in Bowling Harbour

Shipwreck in Bowling Harbour

Boat high tide bw W

This shot is from Bowling Harbour on the river Clyde, just outside Dumbarton. There are several old wrecks, wooden and metal, abandoned in the harbour.
