What's the idea?

One person nominates a photo for the blog from the Scotland group. The person whose photo was nominated then nominates the next person, again out of the pool of photos in the Scotland group, preferably a fairly recent submission to the group.

I will then post these photos (making sure I have permission) to this photo blog. From time to time, if things are a bit slow, I may nominate additional photos or invite group members to do so.

If you are nominated I will send a direct message asking for your permission to use a small version of the nominated photo, if you would rather not have it on the blog that's absolutely fine.

Here is the blog URL: ipernityscotland.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/the-ipernity-scotland-photo-blog.html

"I would like to nominate Minolta Snapper for her photo of the Italian Chapel, Orkney. I've never been but this is the wonder of this website. Sharing places that most of us might never visit, but capturing remarkable sights so that many people get to know about their world."

Emma asked me to share on the thread:
Italian Chapel, Orkney

Many thanks to Alistair for the nomination! I shall ponder on the group and nominate my own choice in turn.

So, my turn to nominate.... well, having a browse through the Scotland group, of the recent additions, the one that really catches my eye - even as a 2cm thumbnail - is AJB Photography's "Citadel"
www.ipernity.com/doc/372775/26026359/in/group/25483

Exposed to give a dark silhouette full of little chimneys against an orange sunset sky, this is a striking image. Alan has placed the tower in the middle of the shot, perhaps against the 'rule of thirds' but here it works well. The clouds catching the light give form and interest to the sky, and the two tower windows peep out from the darkness, quite making the shot - without those, it's just a cardboard silhouette; with them, the shot has life. Beautiful capture!

I'd second that. Quite an astonishing photograph, the light is beautiful and the details on the silhouetted skyline are razor sharp.

Thanks all for the kind comments but I feel a bit of a fraud. Its a case of 99% luck and 1% skill. This was taken from the roof of the office where I used to work and the effect was over in about 5 mins, just enough time for me to grab a camera run up 3 flights of stairs and shoot off 2 or 3 frames before the light changed. See right place right time.

Ah, but "good luck" favours the prepared! If you hadn't seen the light (so to speak) and had a camera with you, the shot would have been lost. I think we can all feel a bit of a fraud in getting the occasional lucky shot, but as someone once said, "the more I practise, the luckier I get". :-)

I'd like to nominate ceri-images Rollin sea mist 6 as I love these dark moody pictures in bad weather.

Sharing images is not easy but I have asked out ipernity masters if they can make it easier. Non-club members can't even share their own photos on discussions. If you have a minute why not email them too, the more voices the better.

Thank you so much! Very chuffed :0)
I found it very difficult to make up my mind... but I eventually decided I'd like to nominate Emma Maxwell's Off To Sea.
It's just so atmospheric, and so very... well, Scotland.

Edit:
I'm glad you nominated that one, I was dithering between yours and it for ages :0))
I should have added a link to my nomination:

Thank you so much, that came as quite a shock. I didn't expect anybody to choose my photo, I don't really know what I'm doing behind a camera.

I'll nominate Horve for his photo 'Sea' www.ipernity.com/doc/306385/26067533/in/group/25483

I've never been to Barra but this photo makes me feel like I am standing with my feet on the wet sand!
