I been dreaming of having a photo of fireworks like a pro. During our visit to Scotland we witnessed the fireworks before the new years eve. There was a fireworks display at Queen Street Garden. I had my camera with me but i don't have tripod. I still tried to capture a photo on long exposure mode, just holding the camera with my hands. I dont move as i really wanted to see how will it turns out. Ohh well the first two pictures below turns out pretty good hahaha. It's not like a pro but not bad at all. 

So they said that the best view to see fireworks on New Years Eve was to climbed to Arthur's Seat. We went there and yeah we witnessed the beautiful fireworks all over the city but too bad my camera cant zoom that much. I had photos of fireworks but it was too far and looks so small. I am a lil bit disappointed but its fine, better luck next time. Instead of taking pictures, I enjoyed myself watching the fireworks light up above the sky. I do really like to watch fireworks. I enjoyed it a lot. 

These are the fireworks photo i captured in the Queen Street Garden.

Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in EdinburghScotland which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated just to the east of the city centre, about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch. At a spur of the hill, Salisbury Crags has historically been a rock climbing venue with routes of various degrees of difficulty; however due to hazards rock climbing is now restricted to the South Quarry and a free permit is required. (Wikipedia)

During our visit to Scotland we went to Arthur's Seat. I want to see the whole city so we went there. I never thought that the climbed was so hard. I thought that its just like an ordinary hill, but i was wrong this one is tall and what makes it so hard to climb was the snow that become an ice. I was so icy and slippery and so cold and so windy. It was scary, i thought of not going to the top, i thought of giving up. But in the other side that was once in a lifetime opportunity so even if the situation was like that, i still go. It takes us almost two hours to reached the peak (by the way we're not a mountain climber and we don't have exercise, so its a struggle for us lol). 

All i can say is its worth the climbed. It's worth the struggle. It was beautiful up there, you can see the entire city. Also if you happened to be there during New Year, its a beautiful spot for watching fireworks up there. Even though its a struggle in our first climd, we still go back there to see the fireworks during New Year. We did not went to the peak we only settled halfway to the peak where we can see the city. The peak was too far to climbed and its dark.




We settled in that hill during the new years eve to watch the fireworks

New Years Eve fireworks from Arthur's Seat







My camera cant zoom that much so the pictures i took was like that. That fireworks is from the Castle and its far from the Arthur's Seat. You need a better lens if you want to have a beautiful photo of the fireworks.

I am eager to learn long exposure, I love to see long exposure photos, but it is hard to do it, it needs filter things. I don't have those things. Long exposure for me turn out good only during night time. 
During our travel to Scotland in the highlands it was always gloomy. The sun always hide in the clouds hahaha and had a snow. We had a stopover in Lochness where you go into a small tunnel with a small body of water cascading into the sea, and there's a little bridge too. I tried to do a long exposure as its a moving water. Ohh well i am happy that it turns out pretty good. I was amazed, i want to do more hahaha

What do you think of the photos below? I know it's not perfect but I tried hard capturing it so for me it's beautiful (bias) hahaha

On our second day tour in the Scottish Highlands, our first stop was this bridge. This bridge looks so magical with the snow on it. According to this site, this bridge is the Invermoriston's Thomas Telford bridge it crosses the spectacular River Moriston falls. Built in 1813, the bridge was part of the main road between Drumnadrochit and Fort Augustus, until it was replaced in the 1930's with a new bridge. Today it's a great spot for photographs and to see salmon leaping. We did not see a salmon that day haha but it was truly a good spot for photos. It's so picturesque. I love how dramatic is it with the snow all over. I feel like I was in Narnia haha. The first time i saw it, I was like WOW and keep saying i hope we stop here, and the driver hears me, we stop for a photos haha lol, that place was really a stop over for the tours.

I always dreamed of SNOW ever since, and this part of the highlands was a dream come true. I experience snow in England but not like this. This is so magical. The all white surroundings is just so dreamy. I want to stay more, but we only have 20 mins in this area hahaha. So i took photos as many as i can. See it below. I like it so much even how cold it was lol

There are a lot of places I never been to but I really want to go and these are my Top 10 the most places I want to go to.

1. Great Wall of China is so grand in its scale that it snakes its way through the People’s Republic, in various tangents, for more than 20,000 kilometres (12,425 miles). The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours. :) :) 
As usual same day last year, we're celebrating Christmas just the two of us, so i only prepared food good for two. Christmas abroad is really different from Christmas at home. Christmas here is lonely just the two of us, unlike home there are a lot of relatives, singing, dancing eating until dawn. At home we're awake until 12 midnight and eat the foods we prepared. Here, its because just the two of us, its lonely to wait till midnight hahaha.

But still i am thankful for this Christmas as I am with the love of my life. Even if i am away from home, still okay. I will get used to it soon. I got homesick but its fine. :) :) It's funny that we are excited for the gifts and we already open it last week so we thought we dont have gifts to be open this Christmas. Lucky us some of our good friends give us some gifts, so we decided to open it tomorrow :) :)

Today i only prepared, prawns in garlic and butter, roasted chicken and baby potatoes. Thats all. We dont finished all, ugghh lot of leftovers even i only prepare a little. And ohh leche flan for dessert :P :P :P

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017

Yes finally i experienced SNOW FOR THE FIRST TIME. It was so memorable for me because i been dreaming of snow my whole life lol. I came from the tropical country (Philippines) so of course we dont have snow. We only see snow in Television. 

I experienced it here in England, in the place where snow is seldom (Oxfordshire). My friend is here for more than 4 years and this year was her first time to see snow like this and i am only here for 3 months. I am lucky hahaha. I was here last year same month but there was no snow and finally this year. Everybody enjoys it, not only me but even the people here was excited. By the way the snow was two weeks ago, still its so fresh on my mind.

The Snow was so beautiful, yes so cold but OMG its beautiful, how the surroundings turned into white. It looks so magical for me. We had snow fight and build a snowman also. Snow is beautiful but dangerous in the same time. The snow we had last for more than one week. It became ice and so slippery. The snow that melts become an ice. So dangerous. It's beautiful but dangerous.
