Historically Beth and I have tended to post photos to Flickr licensed under a Creative Commons CC BY-NC 2.0 licence - or, in long form, Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 Generic.  read more ...

I have been wibbling on in the last few posts about my new tripod so I thought it was time I wrote a bit about it here. I've never owned a tripod before, although I do have a monopod. Instead I've relied on Beth's tripods. However even she acknowledges that they're not great.  read more ...

Continuing with my mission to make good use of my new carbon fibre tripod I headed out this evening to a nearby high point with a good view west down the Moray Firth towards Nairn town centre.  read more ...

A couple of weeks ago now we drove around the Moray Firth to Chanonry Point which is the place to go to see dolphins in the UK. In the season, which started a couple of months ago and runs through until the end of the summer, the Moray dolphins gather here as the tide comes in ...  read more ...

Yesterday we were up early after a crappy night's sleep but the forecast was looking good and low tide was at 11am so we thought we'd go and see if we could find the seals which allegedly gather at the mouth of the River Findhorn at low tide.  read more ...

Until this month I was doing the production end of Cavernoma Alliance UK's monthly e-mailshots to members turning the raw text and photos into a well crafted HTML email and I was getting frustrated by the poor quality of the photos I was getting.

So yesterday was my birthday and, as I've done increasingly in recent years, I was having a birthday week and that day was off to Ely on the bus in search of amusement and pork burgers. As I left Pam, my 94 year next door neighbour, was opening the gates on her drive and said hello.  read more ...

Photo projects are all the rage these days. Some people, like my friend Paul, bravely set out to take a photo every day for a year but I'm still scarred by the memory of doing blog365 some years ago so I wasn't going to fall into that trap.
