Before succumbing to seasickness, I photographed this sunset from the ferry across the North Sea from the Shetland Islands to the Orkneys in northern Scotland. I thought I could get by with wristbands rather than medication. Boy was I wrong!
This henge monument, dating back to the Neolithic Era, or New Stone Age, is one of several ancient sites in the Orkney archipelago in northern Scotland. Located on the main island, the stones have been associated with the religious traditions and ceremonies of its diverse inhabitants over thousands of years.
Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Great Britain and deep enough to have inspired legends of a mysterious cryptid dating back to early civilizations and continuing in the present day.

Although I am not certain, the artfully drooping branches of this tree lead me to believe it is a type of willow. I photographed it at the gardens of Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the British monarch stays during her annual summer visit. It is open to visitors for the rest of the year.

Marblehead is a beautiful natural harbor located just north of Boston, Massachusetts. This image originated as a 35mm color slide, which I scanned and then converted to black and white. Since I never know whether I will get back to a certain place, I like to redeem old photos when I can. This one had quite a few problems to resolve, including a spot where the emulsion had deteriorated. This is my submission to this week’s Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
