Barclays Natural Resource Investments

When you sell photos through a photo stock library like getty you have no real idea where they will end up.

Then, just occasionally, you stumble across them.

In the wild so to speak.

Oh and its this one - looking to Invergordon from Balblair Point.

The Kingston Bridge

The Kingston Bridge, originally uploaded by ccgd.

From the 20th Floor of the Hilton.

Did you know that the Hilton had rooms with Balconies? No - nor did I.

First time I'd had a room on that top floor. The balcony was interesting, it had a nesting seagull that attacked you whenever you ventured out. Just like Cromarty.

Real colours - just great."

No - not the gulf, but Cromarty Harbour and Oilseed rape pollen and seaweed.

Robert the Bruce

Robert the Bruce, originally uploaded by ccgd.

missed a connection by 2 mins (thanks Scotrail) but as they say every cloud has a sliver lining. A quick trip up to Stirling Castle on a glorious June day.

All in B&W though - it was that kind of light.

Harbour blockhouse

Harbour blockhouse, originally uploaded by ccgd.

There is something slightly sinister about the sewage treatment works on Thurso Harbour in this shot.

I used to hang out here as a kid - fishing round the corner, and in my Granddads shop and pub just up the hill.

The blockhouse is newish though, early 80's I seem to recall, and in this picture looks almost military.
