This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Coast.
Three different looks at coast’s over 25 years.
Isle of Skye Coast. An abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
North Wales Coast. Oystercatchers on a section of the North Wales coast at Point of Air, Flintshire.
Ontario, Canada Coast. A section of the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton. Chantry Island is on the horizon and a long way behind the island is Michigan in the U.S.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Tourism.
A small selection of tourist attractions photographed over the past 40 years.
This is Beeston Castle, a popular tourist attraction in Cheshire, England.
Although the reason the photo was taken was because there was a Peregrine Falcon nest on a ledge on the cliff below the castle and a Common Raven nest in a cave on the cliff. I was part of a group of volunteers monitoring and protecting the Peregrine Falcons in the 1990s.
Giant Canadian flag and flagpole with Canada Geese at sunrise. The flagpole is a tourist attraction at the bottom of High Street in Southampton, Ontario photographed in the 2000s.
This is a crofters cottage on the Isle of Skye, Scotland that was a museum of crofting when I was there in the late 1970s.
This is Inglis Falls in Ontario, where the Sydenham River flows over the Niagara Escarpment. A popular tourist attraction to the south of Owen Sound, Ontario photographed in the mid 1980s.
Another contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Sepia which is running throughout August.
This old crofters cottage was a museum of crofting when I was on the Isle of Skye in 1980. It’s another of those shots that would probably have been sepia toned if taken when the cottage was occupied.
My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Any Kind of House.
An abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. I was one of four photography students who spent a week on the Isle of Skye at Easter rather than revising for exams.
This shot was taken on the only morning we had rain. Shortly before taking this shot I had been standing in a stream with the art schools newest large format camera on a tripod in the stream with me.
Monochrome Monday is going back to the late 1970s when four photography students traveled to the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland.
I added grain to the digital version to give it a more gritty feel. It shows an abandoned crofters cottage at Elgol with the mist and cloud shrouded Cuillin in the background across Loch Scavaig.
