This blog is a companion to my main motorcycle blog "Tales from the Road" (link on right)

It is mostly photographs taken during my travels by motorcycle.

Winter Sun

Not so much an "Image from the Road" as a movie from my upstairs window. A time lapse movie of a short Scottish winter's day with the sun not rising far above the horizon.

The movie was shot on an action camera taking and image every 5 seconds and compiling 6,152 images into a movie at 60 frames per second thus 300x speed.

October/November 2014

In the woods.
Torthorwald Castle near Dumfries. I've always thought that this was a strange name for Scotland. Sounds Scandinavian or Germany (The Gate to Thor's Forest?) Though it seems it's a family name. Now ruined stump the castle is thought to date from the late 14th century and was last occupied in 1715.
