Elgol Boulder FoundI’ve known about this round boulder since I saw it on the cover of the Joe Cornish book, A Landscape Photographers Art. I recognised the location in his photograph but didn’t find this rock on my first visit.On this visit however I wanted to get along the coast a bit to see if I could get a better view of a mountain called Bla Bheinn (Pronounced Blaven). Unfortunately the rising tide prevented me from rounding the headland which I hoped would give me the shore of Loch Scavaig to the peak at 928m view I was looking for.Anyway, on my way there I was quite chuffed to spot this distinctive boulder and planned to photograph it on the way back. This image was the best I could find given the dull day.Not long after this the rain came down, and down, and down. I don’t think I’ve ever been as scared as I was driving through Scotland as I was in this rain. Narrow roads with virtually nil visibility, white van men overtaking and articulated lorries thundering past in the other direction with inches to spare. I was so relieved to get to the hostel and get a dram down my neck.I’m already looking forward to going back to Elgol and this boulder.

Millook HavenBack to colour for this shot from Cornwall. I’d spent the afternoon at Crackington Haven looking for some nice compositions and hoping to catch a nice sunset. I couldn’t really find a spot to sit and wait. Crackington is in a deep valley opening to the ocean almost exactly to the West. The tide was coming in so I wasn’t sure about scrambling out on the rocks to get a view which could see south enough to be able to see the sun touch the ocean. I decided to abandon that line of thought and got back in the car to head along the coast road.Millook Haven, a tiny place in a very deep valley had a beach with dark round large pebbles. I rushed along the beach and just managed to get a couple of shots around the headland of the sun on the horizon.It was only on the way back to the car that these bigger rougher boulders with white streaks and the incoming tide presented themselves to me. Again I took several images but I think this one had the best balance.I’ll post some of the ones I took earlier on the beach in the coming weeks.EnjoyPaul5D MKII, 17-40, Lee ND grads

    Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

    As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

    Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

    So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

    You bet!! Depicted here is a:

    • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
    • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
    • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
    • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

    I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

    okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
