Lewis Trip

Just back from Lewis, which may have been the coldest place I've ever been to. It's about the most westerly point in Britain and it's windy, really windy. As it has been inhabited for about 9000 years there's lots of old stuff to see. The most well known is the group of standing stones at Callanish  and the iron age Dun Carloway Broch (sort of castle thing) where the famous Lewis chess pieces were found. 

Here are some photos taken with my embarrassingly old digital camera.

On a short visit to the island of Lewis with me mate - Aktoman. It's remote, snowing and looks like a pre-set Bryce 3d landscape, what fun for a texture nut like me.

I'll be back on the mainland next Saturday, but until then you can follow the exploits on Akto's blog link on the right.

Toodle pip

Same location as above a few minutes earlier. Did I mention it was cold?

The Wrath of Cannes

Mark, director chap and CEO of Stirton towers has informed us that a copy of the new film is heading off to the Cannes film festival, for inclusion in this year's bash. It's taken a huge amount of effort to complete the movie in time for the submission date and all hats off to Mark for getting the disk away in time.

We're having a bit of a rest now, until Monday. Ooh, a whole weekend.

Here are some recent shots that just made it into the edit: 2 weeks ago the associate producer, Kerwin Robertson, asked a favour of the local fire and rescue service. We got 3 fire trucks and a whole heap of firefighters at our disposal, now that's what I call a service. All the folk from Aberdeen fire and rescue did a grand job for the couple of shots that Mark needed, and it was sunny too.

Photos, as always, are courtesy of our resident photographer, Mark Wyness.
