Dreamstime leads to a world of surprises.
If you set yourself a target for monthly uploads the Summer months are best for getting out to capture new material. Joining DT will encourage you to go to events you haven't attended before and to visit new places. Below are only a few samples of images from recent events.
I attended the Steam Traction Engine Rally at Pickering and saw not only traction engines but also a fairground and entertainment by dancing girls.
Then another trip nearer home to Fort George with a program called ' through the centuries '
with images of pirates, red coat soldiers and dancing in world war two.
The Royal Braemar Gathering is an example of Scottish Highland Games attended by Queen Elizabeth.
Images of a little drummer, boy with an umbrella, Girl drummer, Boy Scouts and Queens Guard are shown below.
Then in Grantown on Spey there was Motormania with rare vintage cars, Automobile Association motor bike and portrait of Patrol man,
Then there was an event called ' Go wild on the Canal ' with musicians from the band Seirm, climbing wall, and lots of other attractions.
At Brodie Castle there was an incredible selection of vintage vehicles in historic surroundings
There was also a raft race down the River Ness which provided me with my first sighting of the world famous Loch Ness Monster, even an image close to the Castle !
Visiting Inverness recently was the last coal fired steam ship, called a West Coast Puffer,
and you may like to know that you can book holiday on her and sail from East to West Coast of Scotland down the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness
