Riverside Museum & Tall Ship After Sunset

Hello lovely people! The dark nights are well and truly here, as is winter going by the temperature last night.

This is the Riverside Museum (aka the new Transport Museum) and the ‘Tall Ship’ – the permanent view across the Clyde from Govan town centre, luckily for us Govanites.

Chilly hands while I was down the Clyde taking this, not long after sunset (it was about 5pm when I took this, despite looking like midnight). I’m proper chuffed, because I didn’t have my tripod with me and managed to improvise using the corner of a railing to get this shot nice and sharp.

I’d been wanting to get down and take a picture of the museum at night for a while, that green light kinda draws you in…

As always, thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the pics 🙂

Loch Ard and Ben Lomond

After deciding it probably wasn’t a good idea to climb another mountain because of the snow, we took a trip up to Loch Ard in The Trossachs. In the distance is Ben Lomond, which I’m hoping to climb soon, although I think I’ll need to get myself some crampons, an ice axe and some training on how to use them.

Shipwreck in Bowling Harbour

This shot is from Bowling Harbour on the river Clyde, just outside Dumbarton. There are several old wrecks, wooden and metal, abandoned in the harbour. I’m not sure what the story behind all of these old ships is, but they make for interesting and eerie photographs. The Erskine Bridge dominates the skyline in the background, making a nice contrast between old and new.

This picture is from a couple of months back when  visited Glencoe in the West Scottish Highlands, I actually thought I had posted it already but apparently not! This was taken shortly after sun rise, one of the only clear mornings we had while we were there.
