Matlock Bath


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1/100 sec, f/8, ISO 200

We had a short break down at Oakamoor near the Peak District, so that we could go to Alton Towers. This was taken from one of the cable cars at Matlock Bath. Unfortunately the English schools were out so everywhere was packed. Still had a great time though.

Threatening Skies


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 3 sec, f/22, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

Took a trip up to the Trossachs today, visiting Loch Ard, Loch Chon and Loch Arklet. The weather was pretty cloudy, but it was one of those days when the sun would make an appearance every now and again, allowing for some really nice moody shots (if you're quick enough!). I set up this shot with my R72 filter and waited for a break in the clouds.

Probably one of my favourite pictures taken to date. COMMENTS anyone? :)

Firkin Almost


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1/30 sec, f/22, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

I took this shot a couple of weeks ago on one of my trips up to Loch Lomond. It was taken on a small beach at a place called "Firkin". I was somewhat disappointed when I realised it wasn't called Frikin as I first thought.

Anyway, I entered it into the last Fujimugs open challenge and came it second. It's probably one of the few shots that I've taken that I'm happy with, so I'm glad it did well. Click here to see the entry along with all the comments.

My dad at his very happiest: he's just finished his Sunday meal with his wonderful family. He's now relaxing in 'his seat' in front of the TV - a cup of coffee in his hand with a Glayva waiting. Oh, and Celtic handed the league title to Rangers with 3 minutes left in the season :)

"I don't know how true this is but apparently Motherwell Football Club are being reported to the Environmental Health Department as thousands were reportedly sick yesterday after a MacDonald's Double Whopper"

I hate when I've got a camera handy, the sky is amazing but I've not got anything interesting to shoot. This was such an occassion: an amazing double rainbow, with stunning clouds surrounding it (just out of frame), but absolutely nothing to shoot. This was taken in my car as it was raining, hence the poor quality.

Whangee revisited

Previous · Current · Next

Well, a few posts ago I said that I walked up the Whangee. Well, I went back up it today, and discovered that the hill's not actually called that - the Whangee refers to a group of rocks around the side of the hill. Don't know how I managed to miss it first time round. Anyway, the lighting was crap so I couldn't get a decent shot of it - this one of my friend Adam on one of the rocks will have to do!

Lake of Menteith


Nikon D70 @ 38mm, 1 sec, f/10, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

We took a trip to Callander today and made a detour to this lake. I remembered it because my Dad used to always tell me how it's the only lake in Scotland (as opposed to it being a loch). Seemingly it was only the result of a mistake in a map, which has never been changed.

Anyway, the shot itself was taken from the pier. It's one of my first infra red shots, so I'm still getting the hang of it. It wasn't quite as sunny as I'd have liked, but the result is still pretty good. I think I'm gonna enjoy using this lens!

Is it Snowing?


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1 sec, f/8, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

And the Hoya R72 Infra Red filter arrives!

I ordered this filter off ebay from some guy in America. It was my first time using ebay so I was slighly apprehensive. This filter seems to be really hard to get in the UK and it's at least £60. So when I saw this going for $60 (£34) new I thought what the hell.

So now it's time to play. I only managed to get a shot of my back garden, and using a PP technique I've read, it came out pretty cool. Can't wait to give this a proper shot in good conditions. You get great conversions to b+w as well.

I'll keep you posted!

Whangeeeee


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1/40 sec, f/22, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

Today was annoying. I decided to go for another trip - this time taking the 'high road' to Lomond. I ended up climbing the Whangee - a reasonably short hill - in the hope of getting some nice pictures. But the weather ended up being too cloudy and hid the sun for too long. Plus, the damn sun was on the wrong side of the hill anyway for any decent shots.

So then I drove up to Balmaha, and climbed up Conic Hill. Equally uninspiring, but I think a couple of the shots were marginally better than this horrible shot at the Whangee (gotta love the name though).

Glen Douglas


Nikon D70, various
Previous · Current · Next

So I decided it was time I actually done something with the copious amounts of free time I have at the moment. So I decided to go for a drive up to Loch Lomond and see if there was anything interesting I could find. First stop was a tiny place called Firkin (easy to remember since I thought it was 'Frikin' - much better name I think). Some pictures from there will be shown soon.

The next stop was Glen Douglas - I followed this tiny narrow road for a couple of miles and came across some beautiful scenery and some hairy highland cows. These pictures were all taken in this area. The cows were amazingly tame, but still, I didn't fancy being on the receiving end of those horns so I just stayed in my car.

I ended the trip off with short stops at Luss and the Duck Bay Marina (where they've taken down the pier!).

Have been going through my photos from last summer's trip around Europe. It's only taken me 6 months! I came across this one which I took at the Vatican museum. I'm amazed that it came out so sharp - 1/3 sec and handheld - must have had steady hands that day!
