2020-03-21  GLASGOW AT THE RIVER

I only had the evening hours to take photos in Glasgow. As I drove through, I saw the illuminated buildings on the River Clyde. So I spent two hours with a tripod and long exposure on the two river banks. My family was out in the city center at the same time, which saved me a lot of impatience. 🙂

2020-01-20  RIVER CLYDE IN GLASGOW

Although rain was pouring down most of the time when I was in Glasgow, I used the half an hour dry period to drive to the river Clyde and shoot some night-photos. I had to turn some circles on the street until I arrived at a location where I could safely place my tripod. Many modern buildings sideline the river. Reason enough to bring some pictures with the reflections of the illuminations home to my portfolio.

2020-01-01  NEW YEAR’S EVE IN EDINBURGH

Hogmanay in Edinburgh is the big New Year’s celebration. The New Year’s Trail is a spectacle of stages with musicians, parties, food trucks, and the illumination of the buildings and the sky. The classical highlight is the firework. Joy is taking photos there.

2019-12-16  CHRISTMAS STAND IN EDINBURGH

It was two years ago that I was in Edinburgh during Christmas time. The park area with the Christmas market caught my attention, and my camera was ready. It was pretty cold. My woolen gloves were cut off so that the fingertips peeked out — a good compromise for holding your hands warm and configuring the camera settings for photo shooting.

2019-12-13  BAD WEATHER AT LOCH LOMOND

In the beginning, I was annoyed that fog covered Loch Lomond. Then I could still take a few short minutes where the sky was thinning to take pictures. A short time later, the fog was back, and rain started. Now when I look at the photos, I like the sky with the heavy rain clouds. Almost every weather situation offers the possibility for photos.

2019-12-02  CHURCH IN EDINBURGH

I used the views from Edinburgh Castle to shoot photos from the city. This photo is one of my favorites, with the unique style of the church tower. I have seen this gothic architecture is a typical style in Scotland; many churches look like this.

2019-11-18 ASIAN TOURIST IN EDINBURGH

Google Maps is one of the most valuable tools for travel. Since the EU skipped all roaming tariffs, it’s a joy to search after the directions and follow Google for the way. How do Asian tourists use Google? I think they have to pay the roaming fees. So they have to pay a Sim card or search after WIFI hotspots at Starbucks and so on. But they can’t live without the smartphone, for sure.

2019-08-12 THE SCOTTISH CASTLE

The castle in Edinburgh has all the essentials of an old knight’s castle. Fortress wall, large, thick walls, fortified grounds, and placement on the highest point of the city. There, the fortress towers on the streets of Edinburgh, as a constant reminder of the great times.

2019-07-12 ESCAPE FROM THE RAIN

Sudden heavy rain drove us to the National Museum in Edinburgh. I was immediately fascinated by the extensive galleries and balconies. I placed myself in an upper floor, put the camera on the balcony railing and was thus able to photograph wide-angle shots. They show the impressive extent of the museum hall.

2019-06-21 WALKING AROUND IN EDINBURGH

Edinburgh is a great movie city. When walking through the streets, I think of many possible movie scenes that you could film between these walls. Centuries-old and historic buildings set you back in adventurous times.
