last few months no photos makes david sad

the last few months I’ve been working on some non photography jobs šŸ™ now I’m back. OK not none, but not as many as there should be.

As a catch up, starting to get into Google Maps Business View

OK that’s it, almost up to date, just the 4th of 4 to finish off, then get on to more businesses and more photos.

Getting excited again



some sunset photographs, from last year, when the weather was a bit kinder for sunsets.

these were taking looking over the Pentands and Edinburgh, with Arthurs Seat prominent while the city lights twinkle in the evening sky.


Spring, nearly

feels like it’s just around the corner, here’s to hoping. In any case the light was nice, wasn’t warm, but pleasant to walk about, as long as you weren’t hanging about in the shade.

Better weather just around the corner?

All these photo’s were around Musselburgh, Ā just a short walk today, need to get up to Newhailes in the next wee while.

and playing about with ‘pin it’ button


went for a wee walk on Thursday..

.. walked from Seafield, Ā along the promenade back hame to Musselburgh. Ā Managed to get a couple or so photos.

Started by taking a photo of the first thing I saw after crossing the road,


this is Cockenzie power station, viewed through the fences and treesĀ of Seafield water treatment works, lovely, but at least the wind was in the right direction.


a short while later and on the other side of the road


was the lion of Arthur’s seat, with a lovely industrial scene in the foreground.


soon sort that out,


that’s a wee bit better.

And a few yards down the roadĀ a better view,


with no nasty industrial stuff in the foreground, well after I took out the recycling centre.

Just down the road, joined the promenade


with a view of the beach in the foreground and Fife in the background, with the island of Inchkeith to the left of the shot.

at the same spot


North Berwick law in the background and a small rock in the foreground.

but kinda thought there was tooĀ much space between the rocks.


SoĀ took out some of the offending water, not too much?


And a wider view of the same position,


showing the foreshore from Dirleton on the left to Cockenzie on the right.


Same view


but focusing on the clouds, I like clouds.


and on


Cockenzie power station with Jingling hill and Hopetoun monument on the left


and another


rock and rock


and the same shot


but as a landscape


a short way along the promenade


the start of the fencing, thought this might make a nice shot, with Portobello in the background.

from the Promenade


looking up Pittville Street Lane


and from the west end of the Promenade



looking back to Portobello

Final shot of Portobello



with rocks at Joppa foreshore and a nice sky

And a final shot of Cockenzie power station



again with rocks at Joppa foreshore

At last, Hame


this is a similar shot that I uploaded to Wikipedia and Google used in the Musselburgh pageĀ 

and one last photo



of sea and sky, aye, I like sky’s

So its good to get some exercise, Ā 4 and a bit miles, only took a bit over 2 hours, that’s what happens when you carry a camera.
