This image, captured last year, is a view through the skylight window in my attic.
The mixture of deep reds, yellow and blue along with the dark “threatening” tones convey a sense of anger in the sky.
While travelling through Glen Etive, in the Scottish Highlands, during a field photography trip, in autumn 2010, we came across this old rusty bicycle, leaning against an old locked shed. (probably set up for us “budding photographers”)
Apart from the quaint appearance of the rusty old fashioned bicycle, the “bleached” wood on the shed had the appearance of having been neglected for many years. It did however have some very interesting textures that I have tried to bring this out in this image.
I hope you like it.
The image shows a cob and pen “walking/treading water” after mating.
The Edinburgh Fringe is world’s largest Arts Festival, held annually in Edinburgh during August. In 2011 there were around 2,500 performances over 25 days.
It is a Festival predominantly for the performing arts, where theatre and comedy are the main ingredients.
Among the wide variety of shows, this year, there were productions based on Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and “Hamlet” and pantomime based shows like Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and Red Riding Hood. There were also a wide range of more “modern” productions.
While these shows are performed at various venues in Edinburgh, the public get the opportunity to see a preview of some of the productions, in various locations, centred in the Royal Mile, on the streets of the Scottish capital.
This is an excellent opportunity to get a “taste” of the shows on offer and gives me, the opportunity to make images of some of the performers amusing, comical, horrific and unusual expressions
Here is a small selection of my images from the Fringe 2011. (Click the image above to see the all of the images)

And before anyone asks; yes I did get out of bed at at 5.30 am on a wet November morning to photograph Stob Dearg – Autumn Sunrise.
I think I made the right decision here. What do you think?
