Old and New


London is a fascinating city of Juxtaposition between old and new.  Sadly, I only got to spend a couple of hours on a morning walk on the way back from Scotland but I'll definitely have to return and spend some time here.

Faerie Forest

Faerie Forest - Alpa STC, IQ 250, Schneider 120mm, f/11, 1/4s, ISO 100.
I made this image in Tromie Meadow in the Insh Marshes on the morning of our last day in Cairngorm National Park.  The combination of mosses, lichens and layers of budding branches with their purple and magenta gives this place an enchanted quality.  I could totally believe faeries inhabiting this meadow.

Snow


Its been snowing here in the Cairngorms for the last day or so.  This made for some excellent photography opportunities with trees yesterday and a fine way to end the trip.  Its been snowing even more this morning and here's a bunch of snow on the ground now.  I leave for the Inverness airport in about an hour, I've had a fantastic time in Scotland, but am also looking forward to getting home.

Harris Coast

Harris Coast - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 32 HR, ~f/16, 1.5s.
We arrived on the island of Harris yesterday afternoon and went out for a coastal evening shoot.  The beach reminds me a lot of the Big Sur area.  We'll be here for a couple more days with mostly coastal photography.

Valley

Valley - RX1, 35mm, f/8, 1/320s, ISO 100
Spring is approaching and is my second favorite time to visit Yosemite (winter being my favorite).  We haven't had much rain this year, so there may not be as much water flowing but if you get there on the tail of a storm, there's always beautiful clouds.
