Dunskey Castle: A Little More Time.


In December of 2019, I saw for the first time and photographed – the gorgeous ruins of Dunskey Castle near Portpatrick. The original post can be found here: Post No.170. Of course, when the weather is good for IR shoots, as it was in my original post, I’ll always reach for my infrared equipped cameras first but even when the light drops, as it did here right before sunset, if the subject is good and the conditions are favourable, IR isn’t always necessary in order for me to come away with a sense of achievement or pleasure from capturing the realisation of an image in my head before I even got there. Here, I wanted to concentrate on getting some longer exposures of the castle ruins at different focal-lengths and combine my use of infrared and visible light. So, as Bumble unpacked the chairs and the late evening picnic she’d lovingly prepared earlier, I set up my equipment and polished off my Big Stopper ND. I hope that I have done this wonderful place a little more justice than I managed on my first visit; and if I haven’t – I still have the beautiful memories of a cliff-top picnic at sunset, on the edge of the world with my bestie! Worth it!

Time passes like clouds, over us all – even the stone won’t survive forever and, I feel a poignant sense of relief in that sometimes, we can get to slow time down to a stop – and watch it in replay again and again, in a still.

Shifting Perspectives – On a Mirror.


Following on from PT.I here at Threave Castle, I would like to share my final two frames from this gorgeous, secluded, sun-drenched spot. Though the river surface was as still as a mirror’s, the undercurrent was very slowly shifting the ferry round at its bow towards its port-side and added an attractive new angle to the scene. As the undercurrent pulled the ferry round, I shifted towards its stern and lined it up with the bank as much I could (before actually falling into the river) in order to capture this beautiful scene. Wooden jetties – very slippery when wet! I also wanted to share the closer shot of the castle itself – a very simple composition and a fetching reflection. I do hope you’ll enjoy it too. 

Thank you so much for reading and I wish you a fabulous weekend!

The Day of Two Cakes [PT.II]


As I make the transition from days to nights today, I find that I have a little time to share a few images, straight out of the final edit stage that I was able to grab on Friday last week; a day of glorious sunshine and the whole day with which to enjoy it! Bumble and I decided to head out to Threave Castle at Castle Douglas both as one last go at getting out before my run of shifts commenced and, as a treat for our youngest, Flynn. We called it ‘The Day of Two Cakes – Part II’. We’ve done this before with the kids – we head somewhere for a visit and a few shots then head to a nice café for lunch and cake, and in the afternoon we do it all over again. It’s a way to keep their attention I guess and gives them something less arduous to look forward to. Believe me, it works! Anyhow – Threave was our first stop and I cannot understand why I have never shot or even visited here in the twenty plus years that I have been living in South West Scotland. It’s such an obvious place to come and see and given my penchant for castles, ruins and the odd infrared landscape shot(!) – not to mention water and boats, I have to ask myself how I could have been so neglectful as to wait so long to come here? Perhaps I knew I’d rave about it after as much as I seem to be doing and, I guess it’s better to keep something wonderful in reserve rather than eat all our sweeties in one sitting?

The tower was built by Archibald ‘the Grim’ in 1369 as a 30 metre high stronghold for the Black Douglases and for 21 years it was the seat of the very powerful Margaret Stewart, Lady of Galloway. It is accessed by boat across the River Dee, though when we visited, the crossings were not available. I guess we’re getting used to this now, however, the best views were indeed from the opposite bank and, as these frames contain a few of my favourite things, I can only hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do. The peace, the still of the water and the utterly gorgeous light. 

Not to mention – two cakes. Does life get any better than this?

Remote Pleasures.


Over my last four or so days off, my feet seemed to have barely touched the ground and as of tomorrow, I’m back to the grindstone for another long run and so, I wanted to just quickly share a couple more frames with you – taken during our summer break. If you have read recent posts, you’ll know that we made a visit to Anglesey, North Wales, and we couldn’t really leave North Wales until we had paid this beautiful island a visit. After a few hours stop at Beaumaris [see post #190 here, if you might be interested] we drove further up to Holy Island to visit the lighthouse at South Stack. Whilst the RSPB visitor centre, cafe and tours were completely closed due to persistent restrictions, I had an absolute blast (in more ways than one) shooting from the top of the cliffs to soak up this utterly breath-taking view.

Even at 51 (sheesh, where does the time go?) I  found out that I was still fit enough (or rather, not completely fooked!) to take a steady run up the hill, in competition with our naturally, far fitter sixteen year-old, who remained only a few feet ahead of me all the way up! I was carrying all my camera gear though; that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it! (It was a valiant effort though, Corbs!) Once back down to the clifftop (after a little rest, you understand?) I was forced to enlist not only his, but also Bumble’s help in preventing me from getting blown over the cliff edge as, the wind, so strong from behind me as I faced the tower, more than threatened to hurl me over the edge into the rocky ravine below, some 150 metres or so down. Not an end I would have fancied facing. I needed to get as close to the edge as I could only because I was shooting wide and any foreground would have spoilt the drama of the rocks. So, with both of them curling there grip around the belt of my jeans and pulling me back from the edge, I placed my trust and managed to steady myself to grab some frames. You’d look at these and be forgiven that all was serene and calm, but – not a bit of it. It was wild up here. For me, it was well worth it. I do hope you’ll enjoy them too!

To all of you who visit and follow my ramblings and pictures (those of you who go back years and, new readers alike) I would like to say a huge, massive, gargantuan thank you. I’ve just subscribed to another two years of hosting here at WordPress so, that’s another two years of ad-free reading and (I hope) continued enjoyment. I wish you all a fabulous weekend!

From Shaky Ground to Solid Foundations. [* See: PT.I]


Over the course of the summer, I have had the most wonderful opportunities to photograph some simply stunning places and, Penrhyn Castle has found its way to becoming one of my most favourite so far. Here, I would to close this series with these final four infrared frames, made under glorious sunshine and beautiful blue skies – just perfect for this kind of caper. A fabulous way to spend time and to appreciate so much. Without my family, I would not have been able to get these shots at all, largely because – we decided to go and I would never have been there if it weren’t for them. But I have to extend my gratitude and love to them also, for their unending patience, good humour and tolerance of my endeavours. I guess there are only so many times they should be able to put up with’ “Hang on – I just need to grab this one. Oh, and this one!” I just haven’t found the limit yet. Neither, it seems, have they!

I do hope you’ll enjoy these last frames from Penrhyn and, thank you again for reading.

Serving Pennants?


It is said that Wales is the castle capital of Europe and has more castles per square mile than any other country on the same continent – as you can imagine, if you’ve followed my pages for any length of time, this became music to my ears, for one and yet, a little disappointing also; I was convinced that Scotland would hold that particular crown. Nevertheless, a week in North Wales with a good choice of camera set-ups, a family who don’t really do beaches but prefer a little history instead and a hankering for road-trips – well, I was in my element. One of the castles we stopped at was clearly here, at Penrhyn, near Bangor. With views to Snowdonia, Puffin Island and the Menai Strait, which separates the mainland from the Island of Anglesey, Penrhyn Castle sits in a proud position of not only elevation, but also of its architectural authority; due to its utter splendour – Penrhyn has become one of my most favourite historic structures to visit, and photograph. But it’s huge – and that can make it tricky!

I | The ‘Tease-Frame’ | Penrhyn Castle – 720nm Infrared.

35chronicle.292 (1)

Penrhyn’s history is long and varied and dates back to around the fifteenth century. Of particular note however, after 1833 (when the Slavery Abolition Act came into being) its owner George Dawkins-Pennant, who was an opposer to the emancipation of slaves, was compensated for being deprived of 764 slaves to the tune of £14,683 17s 2d (17 shillings & tuppence for anyone not au fait with old sterling). This compensation happened also to be the approximate cost of the building of the original, unfortified Penrhyn Castle. One can can only imagine the level of local outrage at the knowledge of this, that such a house could be thus constructed almost entirely from the proceeds of slavery.

II | Through Trees to Towers & Turrets | 720nm Infrared

35chronicle.292 (2)

In 1951 the property and its 40,000 or-so acres passed to the treasury in lieu of death taxes after the death of Lady Jane Douglas-Pennant and is now owned and maintained by the National Trust; and this makes any visitor extremely fortunate. The awe on the approach up the shallow incline towards it is simply breath-taking, and from here, I will do my best to demonstrate without the use of further words. I can only hope that these frames (and those to follow in future posts) will speak for me; if you’ll forgive me the prevailing blankets of grey clouds which lingered, from time to time.

The Whole Picture.


Holidays shouldn’t just be holidays. They should be a closely connected string of wonderful and shared memories that make up the very fabric of each of our lives, interspersed with all the mundane and repetitive too, for the full picture to be truly appreciated. As I sometimes like to sit in quiet, philosophical contemplation, the two predominant feelings I always come back to are of gratitude and love, for what I’ve known and, what I have. Call it my positive outlook on life if you will, no doubt strengthened by certain life experiences; or just my appreciation for what I get to enjoy (whenever I am paying attention!) We should all pay more attention sometimes.

I: Leaving |  Talacre Beach, North Wales | 35mm

35chronicle.291 (1)

*

Even one week away from home, with the resultant shirking of responsibility of household chores, work, timetables and such-like is something we all need once in a while, and our trip to North Wales was not planned too far in advance, largely (pretty much entirely, actually) because during the pandemic, so many people have been losing out financially (we, included) to companies and organisations who were taking bookings before lockdowns and either not opening their doors again or simply not honouring them after restrictions were eased. Once bitten, as they say. With that in mind, we wanted to make sure that this time, we’d actually get away as a family and give the boys, too, the break that they deserved. It came good. 

As artists, writers, photographers – there is an inherent need in us to record life; the imagined, the seen, the felt, the experienced. Does a picture paint a thousand words, though? I would like to think so. But I don’t believe that a thousand words can always be enough. I could easily write a thousand here, today, but I wouldn’t be so sure that they’d conjure up anything so good as to convey such joys as knowing that my family were stood around me, behind me, waiting for me to take the “bloody” shot (they are never so impatient, in truth and are completely understanding when I have a camera in hand! What also isn’t conveyed, is that a nine year old boy is waiting for his step-dad to trip the shutter enough to satisfy, so that the same little boy can chuck a rock in the pool and see the splash; but he knows that the reflection is the reason for the shot, and so – patiently, he sacrifices for a while, and waits without complaint or resentment. His teenage brother too, waits; to kick his football across the beach or to throw me a ball in the hope he’ll catch me out; and his mother waits too  with no agenda save only to know that what I do makes me happy. So yes, you may see a lighthouse, but my mind is crammed with such memories that I am filled with both happiness for experiencing and, sadness for the passing of yet another, now filed to memories. But what memories!

Silver Linings?


It’s been a little while longer than I prefer, since I last posted and, if you’re visiting again – I thank you! In short, after keeping ourselves busy during the holidays, we have returned to find ourselves rather the worse for wear despite double-vaccinations, social distancing, constant mask-wearing and the collective use of more than likely a half gallon of hand-gel. It seems that the easing of restrictions and the predictable mass complacency that was bound to ensue, has had rather a negative impact on the dreaded lurgy and, after almost two years of this thing – working in close quarters within the health sector, I had to wait to until I had a holiday to succumb to it. To say I’m a bit miffed is an understatement. As I am currently on isolation day four of ten, I find only today that I have any strength to even post, so I hope I can make it worth your time. Whilst I have been able to get busy editing frames from other summer excursions, stringing words together with any coherence has been a distant priority until now. Is it possible to be cheerful and pissed off at the same time? There’s a contrast I don’t consider often.

Speaking of contrast, as a black and white shooter – I look for it everywhere. It’s one of the most important anchors of black and white photography, along with good composition and exposure, texture, light-play and if you’re really good (or just fortunate) some kind of message. In the latter, I lack often – my Achilles Heel, I guess. Nonetheless, I hope you’ll enjoy these few frames from London, where, I have to say – the clouds really played ball! Perhaps slightly over-exposed in #3 but I like it enough to share it with you, too.

I hope that you are all remaining safe and well, and if you’re not, you have my profound acknowledgement and sympathy. Covid sucks. Isolation sucks. Photography Rules!

Different Takes, on a Theme?


Ah, the summer holidays! Anyone with young children will know very well the stresses and conundrums when it comes to keeping them entertained enough during the school hols. Here though, I have to say that we are very fortunate to  live in not only such a beautiful county, but also within relatively short journeys to some beautiful places which both Bumble and I love to revisit ourselves; places too, that we know well enough that – when the kids are at a loose-end, we just hop in the jalopy and head back and enjoy some good ol’ fashioned family time. So here, shot on three different days, from three different places – are my few takes on the theme of water. Sometimes, there’s plenty and other times – we could probably do with a little more. I hope you’ll enjoy…

Mini-Breaks?


During a recent three-day excursion to London, a trip made a tad tricky by poor weather, even flooding and by the fact that I was back on crutches again after I managed to break a bone in my foot while tripping over the dog some weeks back, I was still able to capture some shots of the city that I am very happy with. Stopping every so often to release my hands in order to grab a camera and scout my frames before capture was, I think, a little frustrating for my family who had to keep waiting for me to do my thing, but, they came through in fine style in accepting the fact that I wasn’t going to be missing opportunities to record this incredible place. Though I am far more of a country boy both in my heart and in my upbringing, I can still appreciate the bustle, the enormity and the complete mixtures of styles and ages of, well, everything you could possibly find, here. 

Though I will be posting some of my favourites over the coming weeks, there will be no particular order of preference or theme. London is a place where things change completely from one street to the next. Any themes would, I think, work against its eclecticism and so, I hope you’ll enjoy whatever is to come. Even I don’t know yet.

Thank you so much for reading and, to new followers, welcome! Have a great weekend!

Look Back, Before You Leave.


When arriving here at the viaduct, it’s so easy to forget to look around at the landscape. It really is that jaw-dropping. If I was a walker (as in, a keen rambler) I would have already known the name of the flat-top hill behind us as Pen-Y-Ghent, one of the Three Peaks so popular with enthusiasts. Suffice to say, though, I love this landscape so much that I am even thinking about a trip here for a few days, after a visit to a reputable outdoor clothing shop!
