Panorama across the Solway from Southerness

From Southerness, the Solway divides Scotland and England. The hills of the English Lake District can be seen rising on the horizon to the left, with the lights of the towns of Silloth, Maryport and Workington (with its skyglow) in Cumbria.

Cash in colour

I've been enjoying colouring some very old black and white photographs. It's been a fun exercise using a cheap (£50) Wacom graphics tablet and pen along with Adobe Photoshop, researching their real life appearances, attempting to restore sharpness and detail in a life-like manner, and extending the canvas outside the crop of the original image so as to look more pleasing to my eye.

Milky Way over M74 near Johnstonbridge

The night skies are getting darker now, and the air clarity for this picture was superb. I used Google Earth to locate the best local motorway bridge where the galactic plane would be seen to rise directly above the line of traffic. A ten second exposure with a 21 mm lens.

Midsummer sunset over Moffat

Technically, it's past midsummer, and the nights are getting longer now, but after the hottest day of the year so far, it feels like we're in the middle of a real summer at last :-)
