The Gourock Shroud.

The Gourock Shroud., originally uploaded by ericwyllie.

"On Christmas Eve I was able to skip out from work early. I scrambled up to the top of the Lyle hill (As my wife had the car). I whipped out my underused camera and had a great time. The mist and the light were awesome. It really looked much better than my shots imply but, I did my best.
I got quite a few usable shots AND met several photographers who knew me from Flickr, and a couple that I knew. So thanks to those for making a good day great."

"I thought I'd take a wee walk up Knock Hill. Should be nice and quiet up there on a cold day like this. But no such luck, I stumble upon the Boxing day Knock Hill Party. Every year, hail rain or shine, this lot gather at the trig point on Knock Hill for a mince pies and a few drams.

Slàinte mhath!"

The tree-lined lane

"The descent from Bavelaw Castle, as seen from the bridge over the Thriepmuir reservoir.
A lovely spot and a great hill for a bike
Quite a Christmas Day saunter."

"A most favourite picture of mine from an early trip to the Isle of Skye.

Originally captured on slide film, this picture is now a historical one because the building is no longer there, unfortunately destroyed in storms a while ago. Sligachan, Isle of Skye, Scotland."

Carboniferous, originally uploaded by scott masterton.

"During the 16th and 17th centuries, the town of Culross was a centre of the coal mining industry in Scotland, with the first coal mine in the world to extend under the sea in 1575. The mine worked what is now known as the Upper Hirst coal seam, with ingenious contrivances to drain the constant leakage from above. This mine was considered one of the marvels of the British Isles in the early 17th century, until it was destroyed in a storm, in 1625.

I believe this is the ruins of the pier that lead to one of the airshafts in the Firth of Forth that ventilated the mine and removed water seepage. In the distance can be seen the modern day energy descendants in the form of the Grangemouth Refinery, directly in front of the setting sun, and to the right, Longannet Power station, with their respective smoke columns."

"From a recent trip into Glenlyon, I had hoped for more clouds, they were on there way, just not quick enough for me to pap them, next time...

15sec exposure, 50mm lens, a big event for me to take my wide angle off.

I spent five hours taking pics in Glenlyon and this is it ! Some days just don't work."
