Good Morning – Misty Landscape Photographs

You’re driving along,you look into the rear mirror and you’re presented with a beautiful misty landscape. The only option is to pull over and be grateful that your camera is in your boot. I won’t be caught off guard again. Misty Landscape location You could pass the same place 100’s or even 1000’s of times and all it takes is mother nature to throw in a clear sky, fantastic light and some mist. This location is on the A985 heading towards Kincardine Bridge just past Crombie, Fife, Scotland.   If you’re unsure where this is then the following map should help.

Edinburgh Sunrise

Last Sunrise over Edinburgh of 2014

Most of the photographs have been slightly processed in LightRoom with the exception of a couple where I have blown the colours up quite a bit.  This is the first time I have started capturing moments with a long exposure which you can see brings a whole new dimension to the photograph […]

Nacreous clouds

Rainbow clouds filling the sky

At the beginning of February the UK was hit by Storm Henry. On the 2nd of February we woke up to a spectacular view.

Les Mills BodyCombat 47 track 4 – Throwback Thursday

The track All the way back to Les Mills BodyCombat 47.  This is the first time BodyCombat 47 has made it to a throw back, why not kick it off with Scooter – Fire.  I always remember teaching this track while participants look in confusion on the first couple of step over front kicks. Les Mills BodyCombat 47 track 4 music Scooter – Fire Les Mills BodyCombat 47 track 4 choreography Why this track? I choose this track for several reasons: Step over front kick, bit of a mental sweat going on. Lots of levels and changes especially going from the knee repeater to side kick.

BrewDog

Edinburgh BrewDog Photographs, cause we love BrewDog brewery

If you’ve never heard of BrewDog brewery then you’re seriously missing out especially if you like your craft beers. Not only is the beer amazing but when you’re in one of there many bars around the country you just naturally want to get your camera out and take some photographs. Having been to several around the country including Edinburgh, Leeds and Newcastle, the welcoming and service has always been top notch :).
