Ailsa Craig is a small island off the south west coast of Scotland. The island is a now extinct volcano, and currently serves as a natural bird sanctuary. This shot was taken from Prestwick beach.
Hey folks. I’ve been away visiting a friend in Germany the past week or so, hence the lack of activity, but I have lots (about 500) pictures from my travels. Some are silly and some just for my own memories so don’t worry I wont be sharing all of them! I got lots of different shots, some like this one, others of the tallest skyscrapers I’ve ever seen (taller than the ones in Scotland anyway…) and some of typical German architecture and towns. This picture was taken from up a hill near Linden – Leihgestern, Hesse, Germany. Germany is a beautiful country.
The second pic is from a few weeks back during the Edinburgh Festival, since Belen over at Artismysanity asked if she could see the colour version of one of the shots I had posted in a more edited form. This is the image with just a couple of tweaks to contrast, colour etc.
A shot from the end of Platform 13, Glasgow Central Station. Just a quick snap while I was waiting for the train to Ayr, but I ended up quite liking it. The station itself was built in 1879, so it’s an odd mix of 19th century stone and glass with modern high speed trains, burger kings, coffee shops and bars. I’ve been getting the train between Ayr and Glasgow my entire life to see family, so Central Station always brings back a few childhood memories. It’s probably one of the places in Glasgow where I feel most at home, (apart from my flat), strange.
