As well as discovering the coastline of Aberdeenshire on our Scottish trip we also spent time in both Aberdeen and deep in the countryside. The city of Aberdeen in many ways felt a lot like my home town of Portsmouth. It might be the nautical history, its general geographical makeup and also in many ways its current cultural feel with the arts. One of my favourite things is exploring a new city with my camera.
The second part of our trip was our good friends’ wedding which was out in the countryside about an hour east from Aberdeen. We stayed in a cabin tucked away in a pine forest for the two days and hid from the world. The cabin with its log burner kept us warm but it was the pine trees that drew me out, with the faint warmth from an autumnal sun creeping through.
