We have, as of today, six grandchildren, though within the next couple of days it will be seven! This is Ava, who with her older brother Ethan, loves climbing over the rocks on the coast on her visits to us in Scotland. Ava is seven.
This week they have been staying here over their half term holiday and this view was taken from the top of the remains of a vee shaped syncline at Mossyard which overlooks the Irish Sea and the Machars peninsula.
A secret shore made comfortable! These home comforts were found along the shore line on St Mary’s Isle, Kirkcudbright Bay, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
A misty February morning however, is not the time to stop and have a siesta!
A Gujarati portrait.
An experimental mood overcame me as I walked down into the woods on St Mary’s Isle in January. It was a grey misty day and as I walked, I took long exposures without pausing. This image is a montage of two shots with the background the result of camera motion, with a normal still-shot overlaid.
It has many failings as an image but if you don’t try, you never find out.
This is a dark and moody iteration of that lovely little harbour at Mullion Cove, Cornwall as seen in March 2013. I like moody and here the stunted light gives the scene a timeless quality, and also a sense of imminence. If you sit and wait, perhaps the story will unfold, if not in your sight, maybe in your mind!
A graphic treatment of the shoreline along St Mary’s Isle. The Isle is a tongue of land that projects into Kirkcudbright Bay and is a quiet place for walking through the woodland and along the shore. The daffodils will soon be filling the woodland with their golden yellow hues. So despite the threatened cooler weather over the next couple of days with the possibility of some snow or sleet showers, in a few short weeks, springtime will be upon us and the long dark days will be gone for a while…..
This is a continuation of my January walk along St May’s Isle on a very damp and misty day. The only sound that could be heard was the hissing in my ears until I put in my new hearing aids and then the birds suddenly appeared, trying to compete with the hissing in my ears.
Once again I played around with some post processing….
