The past few months have been been busy, and because of this, I haven’t been completing the weekly homework set by the course (though I have been reading the emails). I’ve been out and about though, and on the most part taking my camera with me to record memories. We had a lovely two week break to Vienna and Budapest, in which we did a lot of walking and exploring.
We’ve been exploring and enjoying events closer to home too, including a Greek evening at our local theatre. I just loved getting up close to all of this colourful food (and it was tasty to eat too!).
Once spring reaches Caithness, the nights are longer and there’s scope for post-work exploring.
I caught my first up-close sighting of puffins at Dunnet Head at the beginning of May.
It was amazing to see these little birds just a short distance away, they really are characterful little things!
Back during the Easter weekend, we had some extraordinary hot weather and so we hit the beach. Scotland’s north coast has some amazing beaches, and often they are deserted! I’m hoping to do a compilation of my favourite Scottish beaches in time for the summer holidays!
My most recent trip was to Inverness, where I was busy with photographing different spots in the town for an upcoming guide I’m writing. The sun was out and I love this shot I captured of the river Ness leading the eye to Ben Wyvis in the background.
That’s it for this recap. Perhaps not as much learning took place as in the first couple of months on the course but I’ve definitely enjoyed taking my camera out and about with me! My next recap post will be at the end of August where I hopefully will be able to recap some of my summer adventures and hopefully more of my learning of A Year with my Camera.
