The brig o doon was featured in the poem Tam O' Shanter by some chap called Robert Burns. Tam on his horse Meg were chased by the witches that had gathered at the Auld Kirk Alloway, if Tam and his horse could make the keystone of the bridge before they were caught they would be safe. Safe from the witches as witches can't cross running water. Just as Meg and Tam reached the keystone one of the witches grabbed Meg's tail and pulled it right off but Tam and Meg escaped. This is the bridge in question taken from a different angle than usual.

Let There Be Light

The bonnie banks of the river doon that rabbie burns wrote about and immortalised in song. This low rez shot makes it look a wee bit harsh especially the ray of light that filtered through the trees which was the main reason for the shot.

The Watcher

It was really gray (old scots spelling of grey)when this was taken with nothing to shoot, but I was to stubborn to head home with nout hence this.

An Ayrshire Dawn or should

that be An Ayrshire Donnie :) I've looked at this abandoned house for years from a distance. Eventually just before Christmas I ventured up to it while on route to check out if I could incorporate an old hill fort into a composition of the Firth of Clyde. Anyways it was not quite as grandiose as I remember it looking but worth a shot. I'll still return to take the shot I'm after when I can get the right conditions, with another larger hill fort also in the pipeline.


Not the image I'd planned for this post but hey. I've noticed for some reason since the acquisition of the DSLR I've not been quite as adventurous with my shots. A combination of getting used to the camera and not taking any risks. This should probably have been done before but at last I have cannibalised an old tripod central column so that I can swap it over when required and get back to some low angles again.... still can't see me taking any risky shots though!!
