Just My Luck...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...arrived to hopefully augment my series on the slate quarry to find a hoard of people, a film crew shooting some sort of film. This now becomes a "Silly Saturday" image I reckon. You can still see the tiers of the quarry, and the possibility for photography in the future.

They look comfortable in the scenery Dougie ( should have asked could you help Wink with the filming )
Film crews have been a pin in my neck throughout my career, they lunge forward and get what they want and bugger anybody else.

Perhaps not the shot you were after, Dougie, but a fine record of the happenings on the day: just means another trip up there, but no hardship in that, eh!
I can see how there could be many possibilities for further shots here, and look forward to seeing just how you go about handling the locus.
I can learn so much from you.

Thanks to my fan club members. The seagull is actually my drone dive bombing the crew below. WinkTongueGrin

it's flown by a guy deep in the Nevada desert by remote control.

Bloody impudence - taking over our beauty spots!
Think I read about this in a paper. A furious photographer was peed off at a film crew who spoiled his plans for the day. He sneaked back at night and drowned the crew in the quarry. Only found out because he posted his shots on EPZ GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinTongue. Moira

Snot fair, Dougie (as our daughter used to say and I still do Wink)
I had to do a bit of blocking myself this afternoon but justify my attitude by saying that (a) it was my own idea, (b) I got there first and (c) I absorbed the most rain Smile As it was I stood in a corner and couldn't move for the scrum!

Oh, I like that barrel-tent. Sleeping in that you must feel like a tinned pea!
The quarry and the lake are a beautiful setting for a film.
