Some shots for the Subaru World Tour from around Central Scotland - from the Falkirk wheel (Worlds first and only rotating boat lift) to the Forth Bridges (Scotlands longest suspension bridge and the worlds first and longest cantilever bridge) UPDATE: Now in funky new poster format :-) UPDATE: New Glasgow picture...probably the best known landmark - 5 lanes of stationary traffic. I was planning to take shots of the Glasgow Tower (the tallest rotating tower in the world) and the famous SECC Armadillo but by the time I got even close it was dark :-( UPDATE: Well here is the final line up, the new Brockville Stadium - home of Falkirk Football Team. Let the voting begin! Good luck to everyone that has entered :-) UPDATE: The last one, honest. Went up to Loch Lomond today to help a friend with a boat, so what better chance to get a shot of one of Scotlands most famous Lochs! Found a great jetty, where this picture came from. There were a few good ones this time, and since I can't put them all on here, have a look at the separate Loch Lomond entry in my showroom ;-)

Simply beautiful photos! Drop, snap and run? You must produce your best work 'under pressure.' What is the 'Wheel'?

Thanks for the comments Yeah it was a true snap and run : ok where will I take it? That rock looks good, ok, *snap*, better get the other one too, *snap*, right lets go! I just hope I don't need additional photo proof...'cos there isn't any! The wheel is the worlds first and only rotating boat lift! I did an entry on it in my showroom so check it out

Wow, gorgeous shots fella. You could have just taken a shot next to a full bottle of Scotch. That's landmark-ish enough for me. Ahhhh, good stuff Oh, side tracked, great photos!

Hmm problem is it might not stay full long enough for a picture Going to Glasgow tonight so hopefully I'll have time to get some of the Glasgow landmarks

Like the new 'funky poster format'-- sort of looks like calander shots- Hmmm ... TC calander awards?

Ahh the M8 indeed a landmark........failure in traffic control. You should have waited till you got to the kingston bridge then you could have had pretty traffic cones in the photo too. Love the forth bridge pic, great work.

Thanks mate, that one's fooled a few people back home that it's a real car The M8 is a waste of time any time of the day now. I waited until later to go through but it was still nuts, but I thought the 5 lanes of brakelights summed it up quite nicely

Sorry Ben, my camera is quite old so that's as good as they get. They look fine as a desktop wallpaper
