Across Scotland in six panoramas

Or, well, up the west coast anyway. I can never seem to leave Scotland without either taking a whole load of photos with the intention of stitching them later in photoshop or (now that I’ve got the X100) using the built in panorama mode. Before you scoff along the lines of ‘pah, built in panorama …

The Long Grass

Another from the Sally Gap, as if you haven\’t had enough already. Nothing too ‘Saint Patricksy’ for today, mostly because going into the other room and plugging in the external drive seems like too much work. Yes, I’m that lazy.

Spring at the Gap

Sally Gap, last weekend. One of the first spots where you can pull the car over and look out over the hills. Until of course some tourists in a rental car trying to park behind you almost break both your legs. Nice day overall though.

Bald Spot

A surprising amount of snow is still resting on the hills in Wicklow, as we found out yesterday while taking a drive from Dublin to Glendalough (scenic route of course)

Bods at the Bots

The snowy, icy, massively fun photowalk at the Botanic Gardens in Dublin earlier today. It was cold and somewhat slippy but a small price to pay to come away with a collection of photos of ‘everything with snow on it’. Thanks to all who participated, hope to see you all and more on the February …

Snowy Pooves

December 2000. Ireland. Carrigaline to be precise. White stuff on the ground. Possibly snow. We hadn’t seen it in so long that we weren’t really sure. Nevertheless, there were snowballs made, many photos taken on crappy old 35mm compact camera (my first camera). A walk to the top of the world and back again. It’s …

Canadian Powder

February 2003. For the longest time I’d wanted to try snow boarding. After several hours of falling on my arse and faceplanting into the suspiciously hard snow, I began to feel I’d never be a pro. I did manage to sustain a standing position for a few minutes though, during which this photo was taken. …

The News Today

Many many moons ago, when staying in Montreal. Always been housed by Caroline without so much as a grumble or an eye rolled. I’m not the easiest person to invite into your home for weeks on end, but she’s always done so with a smile. Very grateful for that. Very very grateful. Montreal is fantastic. …

White Gold

Possibly the last photo I’ll post before the true nature of the festive season jumps us all in a dark alley. Currently without broadband after re-locating, hopefully I’ll get a connection to the outside world early on in the new year. So in case I’m not back before the first of the first, all of …

Rolling Frosty Hills

One more from Glasgow before I pack the laptop up with the rest of the boxes. Somewhere on the Loch Lomond drive I think (open to correction) there was a parking spot with a convenient amount of picturesque frozen stuff within spitting distance. Course, if you had spit, it would have frozen instantly and you’d …

Uni

One of the most magnificent universities I’ve ever visited. Taken inside the cloisters at Glasgow University, facing out onto a frosty, snowy courtyard. A quiet, tranquil place to spend a bit of time… Unless there’s half a dozen members of a family playing an impromptu game of football 50 yards away from you.
