The vistas on the Isle of Skye are spectacular and I have taken a couple of series that I want to develop into panoramas, but until then am posting this photo from today.
View overlooking the Portree Harbor.
I photographed a number gargoyles at St. Benedict’s Abbey in Fort Augustus, Scotland.
This beautiful Abbey, situated at the end of Loch Ness with the Caledonian Canal on one side and the River Tarff on the other is being preserved through a very creative repurposing into second homes and holiday properties.
Took a lovely walk through the countryside yesterday outside of Fort Augustus. Took a photograph looking down from both sides of a bridge over the River Tarff that flows into Loch Ness.
It was a wonderfully foggy morning on Lock Ness! I took a series of photos and will probably post more later. I posted this and two additional images from this foggy morning on Black And White Photo Images: http://blackandwhitephotoimages.com/?p=173
Castle ruins are great fun. Urquhart Castle was originally constructed around 1220, nearly 300 years before Columbus sailed to America.
One of the great fun sights to watch in St. Augustus is the five step locks of the Caledonian Canal connecting with Loch Ness. Here I captured the upper basin above the locks and boats leaving the lower lock. Sure more will follow.
Arrived to this view from just outside of our flat. This is infrared which as virtually always brings out that great contrast in the clouds.
Rosslyn Chapel is one of the most unique structures I have ever seen. It as been going through extensive preservation work, which has been completed, and for the first time in well over a decade can be seen without scaffolding or what was for many years a large temporary roof. The photo is taken with a super wide angle lens and thus is distorted.
The Castle ruins and present house are also fascinating and are just a short walk from the Chapel. I particularly like the bridge leading into the ruin!
Both structures played a role in the movie, The Devinci Code, particularly the Chapel!
