ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

ONE SPOT. (29/06/13)

I woke this morning to the patter of rain, not another wet day. No it soon cleared up and it’s been a great morning.

I’m at Durness and overlooking Sango Sands. It’s a beautiful place. I’m booked in till Wednesday but will try and stop for a week or so. The surrounding countryside and coast should keep me amused for a while._V0G7022_3_4_tonemapped

I’ll go and see the lady who must be paid now and negotiate a longer stay.

Have fun.

  2. What a beautiful spot. I love the drama of the rocks but also the image with the footsteps leading into the water. Beautiful!

    1. Hilary, it was a pristine beach before the little hairy ones started lapping it. I cloned them out.

  3. Wow, that is beautiful, the sand and rocks, lucky man. I would book in for two or more weeks.

  4. Hi Adrian Wow! That certainly is a beautiful place. The sky scapes are stunning. Have a great weekend and I hope the 'lady' can accommodate your request to stay on. Margaret

    1. Hi Margaret, your comment appeared in my e-mails but not on the blog. I copied it across if that's all right.

    1. Monica, this was just a quick look. I hope it wasn't just luck. It's raining again now.

  6. Again, another beautiful area. I don't need to ask why there aren't people on such a beautiful beach. Anybody in the water there would be wearing a wet suit.

    1. Red, it just gets better. It's dry suit water. I can feel it's minus comfort level even through my wellies.

    2. Cat, not often I get an offer as generous as this but what would I do with the dogs. You come over here and I'll give you the run around.

  11. Beautiful shots, Adrian. That looks very cool and sweet--here we are up to 100 degrees F, so I wouldn't mind walking into that ocean.

    1. Maria, These are HDR so the light is to some extent manufactured. I'm staying here for a few weeks.

  13. Making me regret I didn't go up to GB this year. Actually I was already kicking myself over that but you know what I mean.

  14. Surely there is still time John. Are there no flights John Lennon to Stornoway?

    1. You used to be able to fly from Stornoway to Liverpool but according to the Liverpool Airport Website the only UK destinations now are Belfast, Derry, Isle of Man, Jersey and Newquay. Bummer eh.

    2. Blackpool then....maybe!

    3. With all the travelling to and from airports and getting there so far in advance and all the hassle it's quicker and easier to drive from Glasgow to Liverpool. I'm in Glasgow often enough anyway. When it comes to CJ coming up believe me public transport is far more trouble than it's worth and it's more expensive for him. I on the other hand could, as a Scottish resident and OAP, travel free to the Border and get a train (or series of trains) from there.

    4. I should add that that's a hypothetical situation. I'm generous enough to leave the seats on public transport for others.

  15. It's almost as beautiful as Lewis!

    1. Much the same I'll grant you. I didn't realise you were a chauvinist.
      The camp sites are half the price and have shops within walking distance.

  16. It's going to sound odd, but I do like the cloud formations in the images.

    1. Douglas, HDR usually gives a mediocre sky a good shove. That and the burn tool.
