Yeah, it's been a long time since my last follow-up. Also, I haven't been too active with my camera lately but that might change.
For all of you who actually read these entries, if you haven't noticed, I've been to Scotland. Went there on a road trip with a friend in mid September and man, were we in for a treat. The weather wasn't too typically Scottish. It was overcast and cloudy a lot of the time but it didn't rain too much - which was good for my not-so-weather-proof D5100. Enough said. Here are some photos.
One of my all-time favourites and a lucky find so I won't be too precise as to where this spot can be found. Won't say more than this was near Roshven. The yellowish orange green stuff at the end of the jetty was moss and/or seaweed, algae something like that. This part is submerged during high tide.
Sunset at Neist Point on Isle of Skye. Actually a pain in the ass to get there without a sat-nav. An even bigger pain to get back after dark to wherever it is you came from. But a very beautiful place to visit.
Kilt Rock near Staffin on Isle of Skye. This is a 20 sec exposure using a B+W circular polarizer and an ND filter stacked. Silky smooth sea surface and waterfall flow. Kilt Rock is the Rock in the background and was named for its structure that reminds of a kilt.
The island with the trees is what I believe to be the filming location for Dumbledore's White Tomb in the Harry Potter movie series. I might be mistaken because there are a couple other islands in Loch Eilt. I loved visiting this place.
The Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye. My favourite place I have ever visited. It would totally do to pitch a tent on a clear night and just stargaze. Nice hike up to this spot, too. Very, very impressive!
Glenfinnan Viaduct. The Viaduct the Hogwarts Express travels across in the movies. This is a very cool place to visit.
Eilean Donan Castle. One of the many castles in Scotland that were built on small islands in Lochs. This one was a filming location in Highlander.
Clyde Arc in Glasgow spanning over Clyde River. I took this just before sunset and a bus was driving through the frame.
Glasgow. Bell's Bridge going across Clyde River to the Armadillo.
Hope you like.
More to come.
