“Don’t start a fire you can’t quench.” The orange sky beats like the rhythm of a heart from behind the buildings. It looks closer than it is, almost like a neighbor’s house is on fire; until you get onto the open beach and see that one building, miles away, is causing Edinburgh to light up. Ominously burning from across the Firth of Forth, we’ve been watching the Mossmorran power plant flares burn for days now. I hope this will be the last night we see it. . . . #mossmoranflare #scotlandlover #instascotland #instaedinburgh #ig_edinburgh #fire #powerplant #night #beach #fife #reflection #reflectionphotography #lights #light #citylife #explore #edinphoto #portobello #edinburgh #ig_scotland #scotland
British Culture Part 2 "PUNK / 60S MIX " part 1 DR MARTENS & HARRINGTON. these items of clothing are steeped in history from PUNK to ROCKERS. SKINHEADS to MODS. Brandon here mixes these brilliantly as he takes a more 60s approach with the simplistic style and look. The 1460 boots offer a ruggish look while the tan Harrington stops any clashing of colours. #photo #photographer #photographyuk #creativephotos #project #photographyproject #ukcreators #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #british #britishphotography #britishculture   #drmartens #mods #punk #rocker #simplistic #BritishCulturePhotography #instascotland #instafashion #instaphotos #scottishcreators #scottishphotographer #Scotland #scottishlife #fashion #fashionphotography #streetphotographers #streetphotographerscommunity
This last weekend also saw me visiting #Huntley #Castle which is run by @historicscotland / @histenvscot . Originally named Strathbogie, the castle was granted to Sir Adam Gordon of Huntly in the 14th century. King Robert the Bruce was a guest of the castle in 1307 prior to his defeat of the Earl of Buchan. The original castle was destroyed and a new castle was build and extended in 1550 by George Gordon, Earl of Huntly, who was Chancellor of Scotland and one of the wealthiest men in Scotland. The castle was eventually finished in 1606 and as a statement of power, he left his #inscription along the windows of the south range. The square doorway leading into the castle has four small #shields carved along the lintel with three deerhounds between them. Directly above the #doorway is the coat of arms of George Gordon and his wife Henrietta Stewart. Above that is the Royal Coat of Arms of James VI alongside those of his wife, Anne of Denmark.  On the left is the #Scottish #unicorn . On the right is a #wyvern . Above that are the initials of James and Anne with the royal crown and crest of Scotland. The panel above had a depiction of the crucifixion with the image of the risen Christ in the roundel. Sadly, these were defaced in 1640 as Popish imagery. . #scotland #unitedkingdom #visitscotland #igscotland #ig_scotland #hiddenscotland #lovescotland #instagood #aberdeenshire #viaitaberdeenshire #explorescotland #blackandwhitephotography #lovescotland #scotspirit #instascotland #hiddenscotland #landscapephotography #thisisscotland #huntleycastle #blackamdwhite #castlesofscotland #scottishcastle #picoftheday #historicscotland

The cat has just taken our feud to a whole new level 😡 clawing the furniture, I ignored; eating the house plants, I tolerated; dirty protests, started to push my buttons; leaving just the butts of mice (seriously, everything bar its hind quarter) for me to step on when going to my car, just plain rude... Shedding Ticks onto my bed sheets, that is a declaration of biological warfare!!!! The photo is foreboding and dramatic from todays rain, to suit my dark mood with the feline... . . . #instascotland #scotland #ig_scotland #abplace2b #YourScotland #loves_scotland #wildaboutargyll #VisitScotland #ScotlandIsNow #myargyll #argyllsecretcoast #thisisscotland #estuary #canal #crinan #crinancanal #catsofinstagram #catssuck #tick #war #catvsowner #mousebutts #tmoosouls #gloomy_side_views #foreboding #cloudporn #naturalworld

All aboard . . . . The company has long since been sold and has relocated to Clydebank. John Hood and Co. specialise in supplying industry and the MoD with metal alloys. The company was founded one hundred years ago, by John Hood; he was succeeded by his son Ian Hood. When Ian Hood sadly passed away in 2016, he left almost £6 million to various military organisations and scottish charities as well as making a number of smaller bequests to former employees. The neatest derelict Place I’ve seen for a while.Lots of words to relay what the picture can’t tell you. I’m clearly not a photographer; more of a cataloguer! These premises sit on a derelict swathe of land in Anderston. #psychogeography #glasgow #industrial #abandoned #streetlife #instaglasgow #ig_glasgow #shadowhunters #neglected #catalogue #webuiltthiscity #dereliction #boardedup #instascotland #ig_scotland

Glasgow Royal Infirmary 115/365 A Royal Charter was obtained in 1791 granting the Crown-owned land to the hospital. The infirmary was built beside Glasgow Cathedral on land that held the ruins of the Bishop's Castle, which dated from at least the 13th century but had been allowed to fall into disrepair. George Jardine, Professor of Logic, was appointed the first manager in January 1793. Designed by Robert and James Adam, the original Royal Infirmary building was opened in December 1794. The original Adams building had five floors (one underground) holding eight wards (giving the hospital just over a hundred beds) and a circular operating room on the fourth floor with a glazed dome ceiling. After a number of additional buildings were added, the first in 1816, a specialist fever block in 1829 and a surgical block in 1860. The 225-year-old hospital, where ultrasound was pioneered, was recently ranked in the top 100 hospitals in the world at the forefront of care according to feedback from medical professionals, patient survey results and medical performance indicators. #day114 #glasgow #scotland #instaglasgow #instascotland #ig_glasgow #ig_scotland #visitscotland #visitglasgow #peoplemakeglasgow #architecture #nightphotography #long_exposure #streetphotography #landscapephotography #longexposure #longexposure_shots #nikon #nikond800 #nikond800photography #365photochallenge #photooftheday #365daychallenge #glasgowbuildings #ig_photooftheday #royalinfirmary #nhsglasgow #nhsscotland NIKON D800 18.0-35.0 mm f/3.5-4.5 25/04/2019 21:03:55 30.0 sec at ƒ / 16 ISO 100 18 mm

Glen Etive . My visit here last weekend had quite a profound affect on me . It humbled me, moved me, inspired me and drove home to me how much I want to be living nearer hills, a more rugged and rural environment . I need the freedom to just head off into the wilds, alone, and breathe in the air . . . . . . . . #scotland #exploreourearth #fantastic_earth #thisisscotland #exploretocreate #instagood #instascotland #visualsofearth #artofvisuals #scotland_greatshots #loves_scotland #bbcscotlandpics #icu_scotland #igerscotland #scottishcollective #unlimitedscotland #scotspirit #outandaboutinscotland #landscapephotography #lovephotography #photographyisart #photography #photographyeveryday #takemorephotos #getoutsidemore

I came from a place of never-ending droughts. When it rains everybody freaks out and the streets flood because the city isn’t built for such weather. But here, in this place, the rain is a frequent visitor. It clears the heavy air and makes it easy to breath again. It pitter-pats on the window, like a little kid, practically begging you to come out and play. It calms the spirit and soothes the soul. 🌧 . #scotland #visitscotland #instascotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #historicscotland #outandaboutscotland #igscotland #scotlandbeauty #scotlandtrip #scotlandtravel #lovescotland #aberdeen #aberdeenshire #aberdeencity #aberdeenscotland #igersaberdeen #igaberdeen #igersscotland #bbcscotland #wanderlust #bbcscotlandpics #scotland_insta #scotland_lover #scotland_ig #scotlandlover #scotlandphotography #scotlandscenery
I can’t get enough of how cute the houses are here. I love how each neighborhood has its own unique design and it’s just one long row of all of the same style of building. Did you know? Aberdeen is known as “The Granite City”? Granite is used everywhere here and each individual block is numbered so if they ever have to take a building apart they can later put it back together. . #scotland #visitscotland #instascotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandexplore #scotlandphotography #historicscotland #outandaboutscotland #igscotland #scotlandbeauty #scotlandtrip #scotlandtravel #lovescotland #aberdeen #aberdeenshire #aberdeencity #aberdeenscotland #igersaberdeen #igaberdeen #igersscotland #bbcscotland #wanderlust #bbcscotlandpics #scotland_insta #scotland_lover #scotland_ig #scotlandlover #scotlandphotography #scotlandscenery
