Here is another of my favourite abstract pictures,its also one of my long standing subjects of great interest.UFOs. However,this is really quite explainable. Its simply water droplets on a glass garden table after a heavy shower. I have now adapted it into a abstract art form and titled it UFOs. in space.www.scotphoto.com
As a professional photographer and one who used to work in the avaition industry,I still get goose bumps when I see,hear,and smell these beautiful machines.Took this shot of a Boeing 747-400 at MAN inVirgin Livery.Its now part of my Abstract art range. see more of my work at http://www.scotphoto.com/.

This is a picture taken a long time ago showing a Class 37 loco hauling freight between Oban and Glasgow as it crosses Loch Awe near Dalmally.I really miss the pulsating powerful sound of these units,and remember too that they also hauled the passenger trains on the same route.Those were the good old days with Corridor coaches with your own compartment.The new sprinters are simply no match in comparison
Nice surprise on sunday when I spotted HMS Edinburgh D97 just outside the bay and for those who missed her brief visit here is a picture of Her with Maiden light in the foreground.She is a Type 42 Destroyer.
Whilst Processing an image taken over Ben More on the island of Mull I spotted this disc like shape which the dust removal programme had left intact,Thought you would like to view it for yourselves,I have seen a Metallic disc over the north coast of Mull once before ,Let me know your thoughts.

The long cold wait was worth it on the frozen shore of Loch Shiel in Glenfinnan with the monument lit by the setting sun,I could hardley(my name) feel my fingers for it was minus 12 degrees. Canon EOS1Ds Mk 3 with 16-35mm lense. see more of my range of pictures at www.scotphoto.com
The conditions were really freezing when I took this photograph of Glenfinnan monument from the shore of Loch Shiel Lochaber.But with frozen fingers I waited until sunset hence the pink afterglow in the skye which also bathed the Bonnie prince charles monument.

When I saw the tyre track on the beach I thought about the title,so I actually waited for a couple to pass by which they did amazingly,hence the title "off the Beaten Track"Even though I am over 70 years of age I am constantly thinking of new ways to create Art.
I am always looking for something thats a bit different in photography,so how about this unusual shot of the Rotunda situated on the quayside in Glasgow.I set my camera with an open shutter and drove my car around in a circle with all the lights blazing.including hazards etc.
