Up North again

I visited Inverness last week again; my job takes me there twice a year and it always gives great photo opportunities! It was cold and crispy, my favourite kind of autumn weather. The river glistened in the afternoon sun on Saturday

While I took these photos, the bells of the cathedral were ringing. As you can imagine, it was a wonderful sound to accompany these images.

Here it is later on in the evening with twinkling fairy lights in the trees on the riverbank

I managed some unintended Bokeh in this next photo – trying to photograph the moon is tricky, and I wouldn’t normally post out of focus pics but it looks pretty!

Happy times in a lovely place 😄

Highland summer

I visited Inverness last week, and the weather was quite a mix of sunshine and heavy showers. I took some good photos, a couple of those being just in the right place kind.

2013 review: Places

2013 was an interesting year for travelling, both in the UK and abroad, both for business and pleasure. I’ve included Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Newcastle, Amsterdam and Bregenz in this collage.

A river runs through it

One of my favourite places in Scotland is Inverness. I was there last week and the sun came out and worked its magic. The River Ness looks stunning whatever time of day you look at it

Different times of day and different light give what is essentially the same view a unique character depending on when you look at it.

Beautiful.
