Bike sunset

Bike sunset, originally uploaded by ccgd.

The MTB racing season is over and we have a few weeks before the winter cyclocross programme kicks in.

Time for a walk along the beach, with a jump bike, and the opportunity to remember that cycling can be fun, as well as deadly serious....

Oh - and he won the Scottish SXC 2006 series in Aviemore yesterday, and has been picked for the Scotland 2007 Talent team.

Its 29 years since I arrived as a fresher at the GSA, and 25 since I sat on these steps having my picture taken just after final exams.....

Hamish and I re-enact the moment on his first day in as a student in Glasgow - at Strathclyde.

Oulu Bobby

I've been in Northern Finland for most of the past week. This squat little chap (who looks like Uncle Joe Stalin from the back) is the "mascot" of the city of Oulu.

I must investigate further........

Cromarty East Church has made it to the final of the BBC Restoration programme, as the the runner up with the most votes. The day after the programme was broadcast, there was a street fair and party, and I was asked to be the "official" photographer for the event. This picture was used in the local paper.

On the Speyside line. The staggering thing is that this loco was only built in 1955 - its only 4 years older than me!

Stacked Rigs in the evening sun

Stacked Rigs in the evening sun, originally uploaded by ccgd.

As the summer draws to an end, a couple more rigs have appeared back in the Firth, and late August is a neat time for sunset shots.

Interestingly a Blogger who is up in Inverness next week speaking at the Gohi Music/Creative Industries event - organised by my team in the office - picked up on this image, and the Scotland Blog from Flickr......
