Oot and aboot
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 01-17-2017, 10:09 AM

Took her Majesty "HM The Queen" (SMC Pentax 500mm F4.5) to the seaside today, for a wee excursion to relieve her royal boredom.

It doesn't show here in this image, but that wee fishing vessel was a long way off.

Nice picture of das boot and the ooter horizons for sovereign conquest.

I wonder if there is another doppelganger photographer ("Kerrowup"?) on the other shore with a 500 mm pointed back at you?

... sounds like my friend's "dialect" from Northern Ontario !
BYW, very nice to see some green and open water where you were; here: the St Lawrence River is frozen pretty much across the entire 30 Km's.
Cheers!

Thanks for that.

So we're talking quantum theory here... with suggestions that the parallel universes overlap and take up the same space and time, simultaneously existing with all possible multiple Kerrowdown's.

Probably need to check into their past... to see if they're from our fair shores.

It was at Chanonry Point, that lies at the end of Chanonry Ness, a spit of land extending into the Moray Firth between Fortrose and Rosemarkie on the Black Isle, Scotland (Dolphins BTW were are no show today).

I love this photo! It's always great to see a cool shot of a boat underway - particularly with the backdrop of a terrific landscape.

This is a delightful photo.

We can deduce something about the distance from the focal length required to take it.

Indeed, this kind of shot happens when Dolphins are being uncooperative.
