Reflections of decay

Reflection W

 

A nice shot of reflections in St Peter’s Seminary, Cardross, Dunbartonshire. This is the second time I’ve explored this old building. Both times there have been other people there exploring as well, I think despite being abandoned it is one of the main attractions (for people like me, anyway) in Cardross. It truly is a stunning building. There’s talk of restoring it to the way it once was, maybe it might see use again. Until then it’s one of the my favourite abandoned places in the area.

Loch Leven

Loch Leven Boat

This picture is from a couple of months back whenĀ  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.

The flats across the river

Clyde flats b&w

Some more of Glasgow’s high rise flats, although this time ones that are here to stay for the foreseeable future. These flats sit on the South side of the River Clyde opposite Glasgow Green in an area known as the Gorbals. The chimney to the left is the Gorbals brewery, one of may in the city.

Loch Ard and Ben Lomond

Loch Ard & Ben Lomond

Last weekend me and my partner (also an academic, and a much better one that I) attended a writing retreat in Gartmore Village near Aberfoyle in the Trossachs. Most of the weekend was spent writing with the rest of the group, which was very productive, but I did manage to get a few pictures of the beautiful surroundings while I was there, despite the rubbish weather. This picture was taken from the east end of Loch Ard looking west towards the snow capped Ben Lomond in the distance. I’ll be taking a trip back here when the weather improves (and importantly it starts getting dark a bit later that 4pm) as it is a photographers paradise of beautiful woods, lochs and quiet little villages.
