The Stunning Cairngorms

The Cairngorms is a truly stunning place and I highly recommend a visit.  My shots were taken on a chilly but sunny day with all of the snow at high level.  The scenes below include Cairngorm mountain near Aviemore, home to the best snow sports in Scotland, however, on the day there was little activity due to the lack of snow on the slopes.  My plan to revisit the following day was put on hold due to an overnight 20cm fall of snow, which would no doubt have resulted in the imminent resumption of activities on the mountain.

V&A Dundee

The much anticipated V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum, finally opened on 15 Sep 18.  Expecting 500,000 visitors in its first year that target was met in only six months and thus far has been a resounding success.  The museum, the only V&A outside of London is located in a prime spot on Dundee’s rejuvenated waterfront and extends out on to the silvery Tay.  The shots below are only a few of the very interesting exhibits which form part of the Scottish design galleries.

Posing Siskin

This charming little siskin happily posed for me whilst at Loch Morlich, Aviemore.  This is indeed a rarity for me as when attempting wildlife photography the subject is normally well gone before I release the shutter, a very frustrating hobby indeed.  In this case, perhaps it was frozen to the spot.
