Scotland – Ross & Cromarty

The journey west. We set off for the west coast via Dingwall and Bonar Bridge. Crossing to Ledbeg and Lochinver. From there we made our way down the coast staying at Ullapool, Gairloch and Kyle of Lochalsh before crossing to Skye. Here are some of the many shots I took on this journey, of which …

Sandsend cottage

Sandsend and Staithes

The main trip of 2022 was to be to Scotland (see later posts), so on the way we were able to take up the generous offer of accommodation from our friends Carol and Chris at their holiday-let (see above) in Sandsend on the North Yorkshire coast near Whitby. Just a short stopover but most welcome …

Remains of the Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road

Black Rock

The Prince of Wales Bridge

I really like Sudbrook (where the pumping station for the Severn Rail Tunnel resides – and where there’s a splendid little museum that documents the story of it being constructed against all the odds) and Black Rock (where the original crossing for railways by ferry across the Severn was located) and where these shots were …

Well I never!

Foreground interest in Landscape Photography

That was the challenge set to the u3a afternoon Photography Group. I wasn’t sure I was going to meet the deadline to submit some shots, but did manage a trip down The Bay – just-in-time. The featured image (above) has nothing to do with foregrounds, but everything to do with clever perspective and creativity. There’s …
