Looking down on the River Ness from the Holm Mills Bridge, Inverness, Scotland 🙂
The river level was running quite high yesterday to the extent that these clumps of daffodils, usually growing high and dry along the upper edges of the riverbank, were in imminent danger of getting their feet wet! 🙂
After being laid low yesterday with yukky side effects from my first Covid shot, I’m feeling loads better today and fancied a walk to get some fresh air and sunshine – and of course my camera came too!
I got this lovely pic of Ben Wyvis still with a sprinkling of snow, taken from the Greig Street Bridge in Inverness. The mountain is actually about 35 miles away, so is not always as visible as this, but I really liked the way it both blends in blue with the water and the sky yet stands out edged in white all at the same time 🙂
My usual route walking to work has been given a detour…
But as it happens, it’s quite a pretty detour, it only means crossing the river at the next bridge along 🙂
A rainy but colourful River Ness lit up on a cold night in early December 🙂
I’ve been fretting a bit lately about the lack of variety in my blog posts, in particular my recent photographs, due to the fact that Covid restrictions mean my life currently revolves around little more than going to work, shopping for food, and staying at home.
I’m lucky in that my daily 20 minute walk to work takes me across the River Ness via the Greig Street footbridge, and every now and again I’ll be on the bridge and think – Oooh, that might make a good image! – so I take out my phone and click a quick pic.
Looking back through my phone last night I found these four images taken on different days at different times and in different weather over the last few weeks, but showing pretty much the same view left to right of Bank Street, Inverness Castle and Ness Bridge.
So I thought – That’s maybe something new to do photographically, deliberately take the same photograph of something or somewhere multiple times but seeing how different time, light, weather, angle and/ or any other variable creates a very different feel and end result to each image?
Hmmm… I might just try experimenting with that over the next few weeks, and see what turns up! 🙂
Looking towards Inverness Castle from the other side of the river tonight, using a long exposure shot to smooth off the lights reflected in the water 🙂

This afternoon my husband and I went for a walk along the Ness Islands – little low islands of trees and winding paths sitting slap bang in the middle of the River Ness, linked together by a series of small ironwork footbridges stretching across from bank to bank. Another dull grey day weather-wise, but we had a lovely enjoyable walk anyway 🙂
Still having fun playing about with online filter effects – two Victorian ironwork footbridges crossing the River Ness in Inverness, Scotland 🙂
