I’m on my computer sometimes for as long as 18 hours a day. I’m a photographer and on a full day’s shoot, I’ll go home with 1000+ photos which will take me 3 or 4 days to edit. I’m a webmaster and once had 5 websites which all needed daily attention. I make Tomb Raider […]

This is one of my favourite seal photos. Our coasts have to be one of the most hostile environments on earth, and yet it’s where they call home.

It’s a bit crap if you’re a Dundee fan at the moment. Rooted to the bottom of the Premiership and staring relegation in the face. Dens Park is all doom and gloom at the moment. But if there is any crumb of comfort from this shit show of a season, it’s that it has been […]

Struggled with this image this morning, couldn’t get it to work at all. Knew there was something too good about it to chuck it away though, so persevered with it. Then *ding* black and white! Stripping the colour highlighted the contrasts beautifully, which was what I’d been trying to do all along.

Thanks to /u/Saba007[ for pouring me this dram. Glen Keith isn’t exactly at the top of most peoples “saw it at a bar” lists. It’s the first Speyside to be built since the whisky crash of 1898. No, you aren’t dyslexic, that’s the 19th century. And it was mothballed in 1999, left to eventually reopen in 2013. […]

It’s not as though you are literally kicking somebody when they are down. At least metaphors don’t hurt physically….” One of the hardest things to predict when […]

It must have been quite something living around Loch Naver during the Iron Age. It appears as if there are a couple of small crannogs near where the loch flows out into the River Naver, and it is possible the Picts channelled the water to catch salmon as they were running. They may even have […]

Achorn broch is hardly recognisable as such, being a grassy mound with much of the ruin plundered of stone. However, there is a small trench dug into the mound revealing a section of original wall, which is most probably a section of mural gallery. There is no public access to the site. With permission, there is […]

This one was built on a long ridge of bedrock poking out of the surrounding ground. No part of the structure is visible but there is a hollow in the broch mound itself. Take the single track road from the A9 and find somewhere to park that isn’t blocking any passing places. Go through the […]
