I thoroughly enjoyed your trip guys, TFS! Scotland, raw and pure, wow!

Impossible to mention all my faves but I love:
Fred's Quiraing series F45-55, p.7
Domien's colours of Portree D41-46, esp. D44 incl. rain on the lens :-), p.8
Pieter's Carbost boats p87-96, p.13

Pity you didn't get the perfect Old Man of Storr with the sun solely and exclusively on the Old Man, but you can't have them all.

Thanks again for taking me on your wonderful trip!

Thanks Pieter and Fred.
It was great fun and I think there were some worthy photographs among the over 600 published.
And I liked the easy going during the week. Never discussions on where to go next and amazing foods in odd restaurants (there were several restaurants in hotels that you could only visit whe you were a hotel guest. And while there were no hotel guests, we still couldn’t get in. All restaurants (except for the odd ones where we dined) required reservation.)

I’d easily go on another trip with you guys.

Thanks for looking and commenting on this endless stream of (sometimes similar ) photos.
It was great fun

Thanks Macca, as you can imagine we had a great time touring Scotland.


OK, last series from me, arrival in IJmuiden


p238: The first thing you see appearing through the haze when approaching IJmuiden is the factory of Fred's employer



p239: Once between the piers is becomes a bit clearer



p240: And once in the harbour you can clearly see the big heaps of coal and ore, the moving equipment and the steam plumes from the cokes and pellet plants



p241: In the middle of the harbour entrance is Forteiland, a miltary structure from the late 19th century. Used in both world-wars and now no longer relevant in modern warfare



p242: Pilot shuttle



p243: Behind us some different style vessels were entering the harbour



p244: Big and small, who has more fun   


p238 & 243: A7Rii + Sony 70-300G   all others A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD


So, that was it from me . Thanks to Domien and Fred for the excellent company (where do we go next?) and Fred for all the driving. It was a splendid experience and not only due to the photography but we just had a very good time all together.

Also again thanks to everybody who commented on the thread. That interaction makes it more interesting to keep posting and giving some background with the photos. I'm glad you all enjoyed it!

My takes in the harbour of Tyne after boarding on the ferry.

F269 Of course the barge with pipes


F270 With some interesting structures in the background



F271 Close up of to emphesize the measures



F272 Preparing for take off



F272 Gull parade



F273 The captain on the flagpole (in the rain)



F274 We were told by an expert that these were guillemots in wintercloths

In and outbound there was a (diffferent) young ladyon board to identify and count birds, porpoises, orca's etc. during the sail.


F275 The pipes leaving the harbour



F276 One of the tugs returning after having done its steering job in the harbour (see also P235)


Next: last set arriving in IJmuiden again
Unbelievable, we went for a week end of September and kept this tread going well into November. Never actively enjoyed a holiday so long after it ended

You felt totally comfortable with the bear Domien
I was surprised not to have seen the monument in F264 like that before from you or Pieter .

F252 (train in motion) is great, didn't think of using a longer shutter time while hanging over the wall! And you guessed right, F265 must have been exciting for you to discover there (I think).


Thanks Pieter, You are probably right about F246, I considered it while postimg, but given my issies with the lR Mogrify borders decided to leave it as is for now.

Nice series from teh Tyne harbour. The pipes were impressive!

I had missed the P237 tower. I just saw the fishermen
I'm glad the boat said BARGE, otherwise, we wouldn't have known it.
P232 shows what went wrong in D4 (EaRlY in this series)
F260 and F264 were necessary for a Scotland trip. thx

And the last GB shots

Great Fred, you're all caught up now. IR worked well on the cemetery, allthough I would have kept F246 is the same grey tint as the others. F252 (train in motion) is great, didn't think of using a longer shutter time while hanging over the wall! And you guessed right, F265 must have been exciting for you to discover there (I think).


As we're leaving Edinburgh the last place in the UK was Newcastle upon Tyne, and that limited to Tyne harbour. Here's my series what we saw just before and during the departure of our ferry back to IJmuiden

p231: We felt safe under the protection of the Dutch Navy (Zr Ms De Ruyter)



p232: Frontal view



p233: Just before we departed an interesting convoy passed us



p234: You can judge the size of these pipes by comparing them with the people on board (I guess they are windmill foundations)



p235: Leaving the harbour (and they even decoupled the tugboat on the rear a little later)



p236: A pilot shuttle whizzing by



p237: Bye bye UK, we had a wonderful time there


All A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

One more series to go for me (arrival in IJmuiden)
