Water Colours

I’m not sure how much longer the Ness Bridge over the River Ness (that runs through the centre of Inverness) will be lit up with festive lights, so I went out for a walk last night to capture the last of the colours refelected in the fast-flowing water, using a long exposure to smooth out the ripples along the surface 🙂

River Lights

Lighting up the River Ness in Inverness – the lights on the bridge change regularly, creating a kind of light show of reflections along the fast-flowing river underneath, whereas the street lights along the river bank throw long fingers of light across the water from bank to bank 🙂


An atmospheric city skyline across the River Ness in Inverness, looking from Bridge Street over towards Huntly Street, taken tonight on my way home from the hospital after visiting dad.

There had been a beautiful orange sunset, and this moody, darkening pink and purple sky was all that remained by the time I reached the river 🙂

Foggy Street at Night

I was locking the front door before I went to bed tonight and noticed there was an eerie freezing fog looming outside, so I took my camera out into the silent empty street and tried to capture a few images. At times I struggled to get focus, but took a couple of shots anyway as I quite like the abstract look of the bokeh on the streetlights. The two focused shots show the basic view along our street looking in both directions from outside our house.

Not perfect, I know, but it was fun trying to see what I could get – something a little bit different for this week’s lockdown smile 🙂
