’tis the season…….. best to you and yours!
Thanks Gunta – looking forward to slowing down
Merry Christas to you and everyone you hold dear to your heart and I hope 2013 brings to you all you wish for. You know how much I love this image .
Isobel – Merry Christmas to you – I miss your visits
Merry Christmas and the best for 2013 Thank you for sharing your beautiful blog!
Thanks Amber – glad you like it – I love the blogging community so many different interests and such talent on show – I live to learn.
Beautiful, Scott, this should be on sale as a Christmas card in the cathedral shop. A very happy Christmas to you and your family!
I hope in the future it will be – it was used by my MSP Richard Lochhead for his Christmas message so that is a step in the right direction. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Scott
A gorgeous photo – such an atmosphere of serenity. Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!
Thank you for the Christmas wishes Jo – It is a gorgeous scene is it not. I think the bridge is being removed as part of flood defense’s so this pic may not be available in the future.
and of course Merry Christmas too (the most important thing)
Great composition Scott. The light and colours are great and the reflection of the cathedral on the river make the shot.
Adrian what star thanks a lot – it was one of those scenes you just knew was special – a peaceful Merry Christmas to you and your family
Cheers Scott, have a great one.
Amazing winter scene Scott!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
So…what are we drinking tonight?
Cheers Phil thanks for all your support through the year and have chilled relaxing Christmas season.
I like the cool blues in the photo.
Merry Christmas to you, too, Scott.
Thanks so much Sonja – I will be re-branding (the blog) in the New Year in preparation for future plans – I hope you guys have a lovely relaxing Christmas and New Year.
Utterly perfect shot for the season. Makes me want to do a Harry Potter and crawl into the picture. Simply lovely.
Tahira – thanks for sure positive comments please have a nose around my archive – I wish you and your family a Happy and healthy Christmas season.
A Merry Christmas to you too…..and here’s to lots of good shooting in 2013. Now Elgin, that takes me back a few years to an early summers morning waiting for the sun to break through the thin layer of cloud to light up the front of the ruins and the rose bed. After 2 hours it did and we got the shot before the sun moved to far round. What I remember above all else was the noise of the traffic passing through the town plus of course the jets from the airbase overhead…for a small town it WAS noisy! I recall there was also a Religious Sculpture Garden near the Cathedral, looked good but it had only just been renovated and needed sometime, like all gardens, to settle in. It was a good trip that year up the East Coast with some fantastic weather…..after Elgin it was Forres and Findhorn then Rosemarkie and my favorite location on the east coast…The Black Isle.
I would love to see the shot you refer too – beyond this I haven’t really tried photographing the ruins – one for the Spring. I have spent quiet a bit of time recently photographing around the Black Isle so I understand exactly where you are coming from, I love living here and will probably settle here or Wester Ross when I finish – Wester Ross if I can afford it – anyway I look forward to seeing your New Year offerings – but for now have a relaxed and healthy Christmas and New Year.
I will have to scan the Elgin shots when I next do a batch as they were all medium format shots. That trip was one of those lucky breaks when two magazines gave me commissions for the same area…not only that the weather gave us a good break over a five week trip. Enjoy the festive break
Stunning shot. Have a great Christmas.
Cheers glad you like it – I have enjoyed your shots from around the globe and kinda fancy the travel element of your job but also enjoy being at home currently (having traveled to death with the RAF)
oops and I forgot to wish you and your family a Healthy and Happy Christmas
¡Bellísima toma! Feliz Navidad!!
many thanks – greetings to all your family
Merry (day after) Christmas!
Thank you we call it Boxing Day

Oh Scott; this one took my breath away…!
excellent thank you so much
