Winter Sunset

Winter Sunset, originally uploaded by Paul Cook Photography.

The sun setting over the trees in Lennox Forest, leaving behind a frozen pond and frost on the ferns and grasses.

Alpenglow on Knoydart from Armadale

I got this just a few hours ago, after enjoying a walk to the very end of the Sleat peninsula on Skye. Yesterday and today, we have had continuous sunshine! Combined with a sharp frost that has lingered all day long, so I am happy with that !!! So much nicer than grey leaden skies and howling gales and torrential rain of the past SEVERAL weeks! The forecast is for it to continue, fingers crossed!

This was taken just after the sun was setting to my right, I was in deep shadow, but I spotted the magenta light on the distant hills of the Knoydart peninsula, a rather wild and wonderful place. It was not easy to get to my vantage point, the rocks were covered in ice, then there were big heaps of slippery and wet seaweed to clamber over, with hidden rocks underneath. I got wet footed, and cold, but I could care less, I got my shot of the day. I would have preferred some clouds in the sky, but is that not the photographer's lament? Nothing is ever perfect…Could have been better… LOL !!

Sunrise over Scotland

Sunrise over Scotland, originally uploaded by drBenMonkey.

Another amazing sky on my walk to work. When I left my flat it was dark, but the light was just about bouncing off the upper clouds. So I thought it was promising, but by the time I got downstairs and outside this is what I saw!

There were another couple of people around taking photos as well - happens quite often. I think they are going to ambush me one morning and steal my 10-20mm

No processing on this apart from straightening up and slight sharpening. Hmmm colours are slightly washed out in the upload to Flickr.

Clouds are fibrous cirrus merging into fibrous cirrostratus (apparently).

see the rest of my walk to work set.

Infirmary Bridge - Winter Sunrise

I woke up and all I saw was orange out of my bedroom window. Within seconds I was legging it out the door to try and catch the light before it passed.

This is the Infirmary Bridge in Inverness.

A Brodick Sunset

-_-, originally uploaded by MJSFerrier.

Spent the day over on Arran one of these days I'll go and not come back!
Managed to miss the sunrise colours even with the early ferry it was cutting it to fine trying to walk into Glen Rosa to catch it. Spent the morning making my way up the Glen debating whether or not to head higher, in the end after watching the weather I decided just to head back to Brodick for sunset. My original plan had been to catch it in the hills though with so little snow just now I couldn't motivate myself any further. This is my favourite shot of the day and and my last from the island!

I don't normally take landscape shots with the camera in portrait orientation, but I did think this view warranted it.

This evening from Irvine shore. I know the sun rays are kind of maybe a wee bit too far over to the left but I did want to encompass the low clouds over Arran too.
