Grey lighthouse

Grey lighthouse, originally uploaded by ccgd.

I was out for a stroll along the beach on Sunday Morning, with a flat grey light. That's why this is in B&W.

And I like the angle - I'm usually more of a centred or clear rule of threes kind of guy.

A distant Dounreay

The three Dounreay reactors can be seen, with Vulcan in the distance.

Which makes four I suppose - the last remnants of Cattiness's Nuclear experiments.

The Cathederal

Helsinki's Lutherian Cathederal. Built as a Russian Orthodox Church, its now a protestant Kirk.

They still have candles inside though.

Ruth and I are having a rather fun weekend in Finlands capital. Back to the UK Tomorrow, and our car is in Heathrow, so a long drive north......

We have been down south, visiting Charlie and Sarah at their new house in Oxford-shire, and staying in a wee holiday cottage in the village of Fritwell.

A classic shot of a classic Oxford-shire church.

Looking down the firth

Looking down the firth, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Last Saturday was wild - the Cromarty Boat Club was due for their autumn Boat lift, but when I wondered down to take some snaps there was no crane, and lots of worried looking boat owners........

Force 8 or thereabouts, five semi-subs, and a Galaxy Jack up. The Firth does look busy these days.

Sunday was nice though - and all the boats seemed to craned out to everyone's satisfaction.

Fishertown glimpses

Fishertown glimpses, originally uploaded by ccgd.

My first attempt at a printed photographic poster, as an entry for the "Creative Cromarty" exhibition, whose theme this year was the Fishertown.

It’s OK for the a first attempt, but I'm not comfortable with the balance - to much space top and bottom.

A few people have asked after it as a commercial product, so I'll revisit the design over the next wee while.
