Stornoway fishing fleet in harbour

On a Saturday evening in Stornoway (An Eilean Leodhais) you can see the fishing fleet in the harbour. On this night there was a beautiful soft evening light that reflected in the water. The scene had a soft rhythm of its own.

The View from the Calanais Stones, Isle of Lewis

The Calanais standing stones are dramatic but what you don’t see in the travel photographs is this beautiful vista of lochs and the hills of Harris when you turn you back to the stones.

Muscovy duck - Los Angeles River

This duck obligingly sat for me while I took its portrait. Was practising shooting sharper images with my Nikon D300.

Fishing Party - Los Angeles River

Spotted as I crossed the bridge over the river – a family party fishing and having fun in the river. Light was perfect.

These are shots I took while on the island of Harris. Loved it there. The

split toning gives them a more dramatic look.

Shot this from the car on the way from Nuevo Casas Grandes to the US Border.

I recently made a flying visit to Nuevo Casas Grandes. The people there were friendly and very hospitable. On the way back to the US border crossing at Santa Theresa, I took some shots from the car. They turned out not too badly condsidering. The one above is of a prehistoric type drawing on the mountainside. The one below is a stark contrast between the grandeur of the mountain above and the poverty below.

I was fascinated by the rhythms of the mountains in contrast to the surrounding desert.

“All life is a repeating pulse and ebb and surge of motion.”

L. Ron Hubbard – from his book, ART

Contrast between the grandeur of the mountain above and the poverty below.
