Going Forth

Leave a comment

For now a small break from the writing with images as i notice i like to share some photos too. This one was taken back in 2013. It was very impressive to stand in front of the Forth railway bridge near Edinburgh back in 2013. Such an amazing sight. And then to think it’s over a century old. I tried to create a bit of a mood in this picture. Really worked with the light and the contrast here, to emphasize the bridge and the clouds.

Dunvegan IMG_9958 IMG_9958-2

Edited a couple of pictures from Scotland, as i was inspired by another person who posted some amazing photographs. Really tried to focus on details within existing images. The first one of the Dunvegan Castle is the total image, the other 2 are cut-outs from different images. Fun to look at photos in this way, as you create entirely different scenery 🙂

Bath’s Finger

Bath Finger klein

Bath is a lovely city in the south west of the United Kingdom. It’s got its own Ponte Vecchio. At this bridge there is this cascade of artificial waterfalls which looks pretty nice. Played a bit with the perspective, to give it a personal touch as it reminded me of a finger.

Wish you all a happy Easter

Tried a bit more extreme edit of this picture. Btw, thats me with the camera in the picture 😉 My father took this picture and i really like it. But to make something special out of it i enhanced it according to what i think suits this picture. Very personal, but still i hope you like it!

Wish you a wonderful weekend !

Knight of Edinburgh

As there is a castle in Edinburgh, you also need knights to defend it. So they placed two statues at the gate. This is one of them, i’ve converted the image to black and white for a little more drama 🙂

Played around with an image from the archive of the Dunvegan castle water garden. Tried to create a nightlike atmosphere. Let me know what you think!
