Westhall, revisited.

Westhall, revisited., originally uploaded by Kieran Campbell.

"As promised, I went back to Westhall with some flashy assistance. Thanks to Tayne for the bursts with the purple gel. He took a similar shot beside this one.

We had quite a gathering tonight - 8 flickrites on the go which makes it bigger than the last Scottish meet. Anyway that's the last of the star trails for now, any more and folks will probably get bored so I'll have to scope out some new subjects for the next new moon.

Strobist: Nikon SB800 at full power with purple gel fired three times at the far right ( where the flare is), three times by the front door, three times in the bar and four times in the ballroom ( additional lighting from 8-10 tealights). Canon 430ex fired at 1/4 power on the outer right side of the building four times."

Coastal Decay 3

Coastal Decay 3, originally uploaded by Billy Currie.

"Two stunning old wrecks found on the Island of Mull.

As they were, the original images didn't convey the sense of decay and erosion when standing next to these. I also tried hdr and various other techniques but couldn't get the look I wanted.
I then resorted to a good old layer and now love these pics."

Waiting "Jacobite Solider"

Waiting "Jacobite Solider", originally uploaded by gary.moffat.

"Character from the “Battle of Prestonpan’s” re-enactment East Lothian, Scotland.

The Battle of Prestonpans was the first significant conflict in the second Jacobite Rising. The battle took place on 21 September 1745. The Jacobite army loyal to James Francis Edward Stuart and led by his son Charles Edward Stuart defeated the army loyal to the Hanoverian George II led by Sir John Cope. It was initially known as the Battle of Gladsmuir - but was fought at Prestonpans, East Lothian, Scotland on that town's borders with Tranent, Cockenzie and Port Seton. The victory was a huge morale boost for the Jacobites, and a heavily mythologized version of the story entered art and legend."

Tommy and Maggie, originally uploaded by the44mantis.

"At 2199ft or 670m the A93 at Cairnwell is the highest main road in the UK.
For years I've called this pair Tommy and Maggie, but I saw last week that the inscription is 'Tommy and Wife'. Well, the internet's no help - one guy even says it's Wainwright and wife, which makes about as much sense as my title does:-)
I must say they're showing their age a bit now.......:-)"

"It's a beast of a mountain.

Another from my INV-GLA expedition. Didn't get the classic view from the bottom with a burn in the foreground, but I'd already walked 20 (tough) miles from Glen Nevis this day so I wasn't for taking any sort of detour!"

100 Strangers: 3/100

100 Strangers: 3/100, originally uploaded by Miss.Informed.

"I went back to the market with my cousin and new flatmate. We sat behind the statue of King Edward the whoever and munched on a tasty brat sausage and we saw these two gentlemen.

I freely admit it; I eavesdropped. He was speaking with unusual intensity about international politics and globalisation. My curiosity was peaked and I asked him if he would be my next stranger for We spent the next 25 minutes speaking with him and his more silent friend, Carlos (seated on the right).

This gentleman spoke with the evangelical zeal of a preacher. Except, he wasn't preaching hell-fire and redemption. He was passionately anti-capitalist, anti consumerism and socialist. His speech was punctuated by his friend, Carlos' nods of approval and agreement. He asked if I was American and I said no; i did tell him that my cousin had just lived in New York for a year. He told me that being in New York had depressed him, especially when he'd seen flats that had bars to keep people from stealing. "Americans," he said, "are living in spiritual poverty because of the American dream that makes them over consume."

His life has been one of roving: he had lived in New York, Toronto, Iran and on a kibbutz in the Golan Heights. He told us a story of hitch-hiking from Thunder Bay to New York in the middle of winter.

As I was taking this photo, he was telling a story to my cousin and flatmate. Apparently, he was in New York and about to pay for a room at the Waldorf Astoria. A security guard heard his accent and came up to him and asked him; " So Scotty, whaddya think of George Dubya Bush?"

At this point, he paused in his story and stood up to illustrate his point. Then he BOOMED out, in the middle of union street, right next to the international market: "I THINK GEORGE BUSH IS A MOTHER F**KING WANKER" It was so loud that heads across the street swiveled towards us.

On cue, some young man walking down Union shouted back, "F**king too right, he's a wanker!"

I then realised I hadn't even asked his name. Everyone, please meet David."

Buchaille Etive Mor from the River Coupall

"A low angle shot of Buchaille Etive Mor from the River Coupall. Not long after sunrise. Those failiar will recognise this as a from a well used spot, but this is one of my favourites that I have taken from here.

Every time I think I'm done shooting this mountain, I'll drive by on my way elsewhere and I'll see the mountain in yet another light that I haven't shot it in yet. This morning I was on my way to Oban to visit the sea-life sanctuary, and the light was getting a bit better as we got closer to Glen Coe. I've not shot the mountain with this sky yet, so I stopped and had a crack.
