The iconic "Eilean Donan" Castle in the Kyle of Lochalsh.
I had shot a wedding in the Castle on the Saturday and because of its remoteness had stayed overnight in a local hotel.
The day of the wedding was lovely and sunny but after the ceremony the weather took a turn for the worse and outdoor shots of the Bride and Groom were impossible, a real shame.
However when I set off for home on the Sunday morning I had to drive past the castle again and the poor weather had produced that fantastic light we can get over here which makes bad weather a viable subject.
I pulled over at "Aird Point" North of the castle and got down low(Wedding gear was all stowed away in the Boot/trunk but the 400D and 18-55 kit lens at that time was always in the car with me).
I loved the resulting shot and that light ? Magical.

This street in Rosemarkie, Scotland, intrigued me. It looked like something out of a Hopper painting. I waited, and waited, until the road cleared in front and nothing was coming at me from behind and took the shot. Post-processing was merely to increase the saturation and luminosity of yellows, oranges and aquas.

(What ! Only 4 pics in the sites wedding catergory !)Time to add some.

Had the privilege of shooting my sisters wedding. The ceremony was held in my parents garden but as I always do with weddings (if possible), I take the bride and groom away from the venue post ceremony.
This is when all the built up nerves and stress have gone and in my opinion its when you get the best shots (without interference from family/guests).
We,fortunately live on a beautiful shoreline in Eastern Scotland so where to go was obvious.
I will post these as a numbered set.

A few years back (6 I think)I had the privilege of shooting a wedding at the iconic "Eilean Donan" Castle (Have you seen the movie "Highlander") on the west coast of Scotland.
It was an evening shoot because the castle is open to the public during the day so weddings are hosted in the castle during evenings only.
I decided to scout out the location during the afternoon and all I had with me was my Canon 30D with the cheap Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 II Telezoom which has had some real ripping in online reviews from gear snobs (you know the type) but I liked it.
Anyway as I walked around the back of the castle away from the crowds a Golden Eagle alighted on to a wall in front of me. Couldnt believe my luck and using just what I had in my hand I got off a couple before it flew off.
I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed it later and saw the quality. This is a CROP (about 25% of the original) and shot at 400 ISO on an 8mp camera. Once again its not always the best gear that gets the best shot.

Boddin Point, Montrose, Angus, Scotland.
An old Salmon fishing station which has been unused and left to the elements since the Seventies.
This old building is a Lime Kiln built in the 1700s and has lain derelict for many decades longer.
Used to produce Lime from the shoreline rock for the local farmers to encourage crop growth in the local and difficult red clay soil.
