"these two shots are of the hdr-from-single-raw variety. The day that i took these photos I learned one of the most annoying lessons with the 350D, i spent a whole ridiculously bright, sunny day shooting ISO400 - doh. Also would help if i had a rough idea where i took this photo! earth knows all - got it!"

During my brilliant career as a deckhand on a Scottish seine netter, catching Cod in the days when the sea sometimes seethed with them. The skipper was Angus Macintosh. See here more about this remarkable man. I cannot remember who the person with me is.

The last rig leaves the Firth

The last rig leaves the Firth, originally uploaded by ccgd.

The last rig leaves the Firth

The Essar Wildcat (ex Transocean Wildcat) is towed out between the Sutors as it starts a 90 day journey to Kakinada India. Due to the height of the derrick, the Suez Canal cannot be used, so it will go the long round, via the Cape. She is being towed by the (very colourful) Fairmount Sherpa, who steamed to the Cromarty Firth from Dubai, and the combination will travel at an average speed of 8 knots, all the way back again.

Essar paid $220M for this 30 year old rig, which has been cold stacked in the Firth since the late 90's.

So apart from the Galaxy Jackup alongside the service base at Invergordon, which is due to go out in the next few weeks, the Firth is empty.

"The eclipsed moon was behind some cloud, so I took some other night shots. This is the Ptarmagin Appartment in the Lagganlia Outdoor Centre near Feshiebridge up in the Cairngorms. You can watch red squirrels, woodpeckers and owls over breakfast through big windows overlooking the forest - a great location."

"Here is a picture of a waterfall at Calderglen Country Park in East Kilbride. Scotland. It is taken with my new camera, on a tripod, with a button press thingy on the end of a wire. I have tried using a long exposure so get the water all nice and blurry etc etc, which I have sort of managed but will need lots and lots of practice!!!"

This was beautiful to watch, on a lovely clear starry night from my living room window with the fire on and the tripod set up at the window. Looking through my 10x50 binoculars was spectacular.

This also revealed how much I could do with upgrading my cheap 75-300 zoom for something sharper...
