It has been a week of moon rises, sunsets, walking, nice weather and generally good times.

I have stuck to the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L Series lens most of the weekend, and have enjoyed using it for a change. Isolating things is sometimes more interesting than grabbing “the big picture”, and it makes me think a bit harder about composition. I’ve also been experimenting with film emulation in Adobe Lightroom – and I’m starting to settle on this as being the way I’d like most of my images to look.

The grand finale to the week was a lovely walk with Kirsty down the Thurso River at Dirlot Castle to the old Knockdoo Quarry, such an interesting place. Walking over the heathery wet ground for the first time this year was good fun too! We stopped for our sandwiches along the quarry track and managed to find a sunny spot out of the breeze – it felt warm and was a real appetiser for the (hopefully good) summer ahead!
