Silhouette shot of one of the crossings three-tower towers

Construction of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge is almost complete. This tower is one closest to the Fife side. The crossing is due to open next month.

Shot details in brief

The location is set on the east coast of Fife, Scotland. A late evening post sunset shot, where there was too much wind a cloud present to capture a decent sunset. On board the Maid of the Forth cruise boat, we enjoyed a 3-hour cruise whilst enjoying the coastline from many angles.

Sunkist outdoor café set against the rising sun, this is what dining Al fresco is all about.

Dining outdoors is recommended when the ambiances is just right. The choice of seating arrangement and location at a picturesque setting always helps. Booking a dinner reservation al fresco style is all about location and time of day/evening.

Shot details in brief

The location is set on the east coast of Majorca, Spain. An early Sunday post dawn shot, with no guests or visitors around. The morning dew was still visible on the table tops.

Abandoned bike | Potential Restoration Project

July 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

DISCARDED old bike hidden away.Vintage Raleigh 3 Solitaire Out of sight and hidden away, this abandoned bike is in need of some repair.

Pre-loved, a Solitaire model by Raleigh, this old abandoned bike lies unused; it’s been a while since it last turned a wheel by the looks things. The condition is poor, great photography interest but someone will have his or her work cut-out to refurb to a working condition.  Spares or repairs, a potential restoration project for someone, no doubt it will be tossed in a skip during a clear out.
