Lucy's new Icar

I have finally gone and bought a Mac! After years of tinkering with PCs the move towards Mac was not taken lightly. In fact I doubt that I will come to any firm conclusions as to the merit of my decision for some time to come.
In any case whilst I download the latest versions of Mac OS and Adobe Photowhatshop it is pleasing to see that at least one person in our household thinks buying an iMac (sorry i-Car!)
was a good decision!

Old ones can be the best ones!

Hard disk space and back-ups are something that you never have enough of. I was trying to clear some space and tidy up my network attached storage in advance of some upgrades and backups. I decided that some photos which had previously not been worked may warrant some of my attention and this one in particular caught my eye. Why did I not see potential to process it before? I am not sure. Perhaps the memory of the view was stronger than the image and I felt it wasn't worthy of time spent in photoshop.
In any case it wasn't long before I saw the obvious panorama shot and the need for a black and white conversion. Funny thing is the more I look at it the more I think I may be back to it in the future.

Greg's promo shot

My lad loves his bike and is of the age where I thought he needed a portrait/promo shot of him with his bike so when at the trails today I decided to catch him while he was resting.

He put on his best tough-guy stare but looks like he's wondering what I am doing!

Any way i am sure the girls will love it :)

Land Here!

Land Here

Not been blogging for a while so hope to catch up here. This shot was taken just before I landed at Achmelvich beach in North West Sutherland after a short flight around Stoer point and Lochinver. The scenery was fantastic - as you might expect - and the day was fairly interesting too.

I stopped off at a couple of customers prior to the flight which was a loose way of mixing business with pleasure and after I landed I visited a bistro for lunch and bumped into my next door neighbours who just happened to be in the area!
