Castles Girnigoe and Sinclair are fine examples of medieval structures situated on the cliffs on noss- head north of Wick in Sinclair bay.Girnigoe was a late 15th cent crow-stepped gabled L Plan tower house.sadly this is all thats left.Nearby was a 17th cent cluster of towers know as Sinclair castle.dennis hardley photography

When things go right they go right,perfect misty morning after the low lying mists encrust the trees with frost.Taken with the sun almost in the lense to the left.www.scotphoto.com.Myself and Tony are working on a new website and so far we have 2600 images on it.We will launch this site in the spring.will keep you posted.
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.
