As always the fireworks in Glasgow Green were fantastic. Colourful explosions in the sky! It’s always hit or miss with these sort of things, the weather plays a huge part, ideally you want a pleasant evening but a bit of wind is always welcome to blow away the smoke because after the first few you then have a haze to compete with but at the same time you at least get nice blue and pink smoke if you time it correctly.
A recent visit to the Botanic Gardens Train Station which has been long abandoned since 1939. The building above became a venue which then burned down in 1970. The platforms and railway tunnels still exist but the rails are no longer there, it looks like something from an apocalypse movie with light coming through two open sections in the roof leading up to the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow’s west end. The train station is a bit of a “must do” for the modern urban explorer in the central belt of Scotland and is a regular place for graffiti artists to frequent.
Photos from a trip to Rannoch Loch, near Pitlochry and through the Tummel Valley. A few days camping on the bay near the west of the loch on the north shore. Fantastic spring weather, warm sunshine with a slight breeze and at times the water was still and like a mirror.
Photos from a few days around Aviemore and Newtonmore in the highlands of Scotland. Amazing dark sky at night awarded me with some brilliant photos of the stars and the varied and slightly random Scottish weather had blue sky and sun followed by dark overcast clouds so there was plenty of different views of the landscape.
With one of the warmest weeks we’ve even seen in February in Glasgow we took a walk at Cathkin Braes today, nice weather and a fantastic view.
A pleasant day out, I feel this part of the country always has a cold breeze coming in off the water. Stunning little village though, full of history and very picturesque.
