MacDuff Marine Aquarium
My sister visited at the begining of the week so there was an opportunity to go out and about. Our first visit was to MacDuff marine aquarium. This presented pots of photo opportunities but each one had its challenges that I am, not sure I have overcome. First is a question of white balance. In the main deep tank all of the images had a ghastly green tinge. I have tried to remove it in photoshop with some, but not great success.
The second challenge was reflections. It was difficult to get a composition that did not have reflections from the glass messing it all up.
Some potential images were not worth trying. The surface water reflections in the ray pool made it impossible to take any images.
However sometimes things worked.
On another day we went to Drinnies Wood and Louden Wood. The aim was to find the Louden Wood stone circle and we were armed with a map from Eric Watt so the mission, unlike previous ones, had every prospect of succeeding.
And to succeed we did! As a bonus we also were able to go up Drinies Wood Observatory and we found lots of fungi - mostly in the depths of the forest so difficult to capture on 'digital' ('capturing an image on film' has a certain ring to the phrase that the modern equivalent 'capturing a digital image' somehow lacks)
And again as usual a few more of this weeks images.
