I’m a sucker for cool old ruins! Give me old castles, churches, standing stones, walls, brochs, anything, and I’ll be entertained. Old cemeteries also tend to be pretty interesting, especially if they have a bunch of old 13th and 14th century burial slabs like at Kilmory, a small village on the west coast of the Knapdale region. Perhaps I’d be a bit bummed though if I was some cool warrior and paid a bunch on money for a carved grave slab, then someone comes along and takes it so a bunch of tourists can see it. I guess it will happen to us in a few hundred years as well…
Woke up early hoping to get a good sunrise, nope!
I wonder if Scottish cows have accents? I’ve always thought these guys are cool looking. I think they have a mildly ‘cheeky’ look to them and I wonder how they are able to see? The little buggers are really funny looking, like some fuzz ball with long legs that runs around.

Every year the old iron mine on the edge of town has a celebration: music, dancing, theater, fire, beer, bratwurst, and fireworks.
While the summer of 2006 was the ‘best in 50 years’ in southern Norway (as I was told), the sun didn’t seem to make it up to the arctic circle and Lofoten very often. Blue skies are boring anyhow…
View towards Henningsvær from Stamsund.
Was down in the Nürnberg the other week taking some photos at a (Jazz) concert. The venue was in an old church ruin from the war and looked pretty cool once it got dark. At least the rain waited until the end…
Reverso 3. Happy birthday christmas Cody. Err, bit of an impulse buy, but I’ve been wanting a new belay device for a bit.

The empty beach and clear waters at Traigh Allt Chailgeag. Almost looks like it could be some place warm.
