Misty Morning at Manhattan Beach

When I was out in California a few months ago, I got up really early to go down to the pier in Manhattan Beach to get some early morning sunrise shots. I grew up in California but I forgot about the normal overcast layer that burns off later in the morning. Not to be defeated by some overcast skies, I walked around and took some shots anyway. I wandered out to the end of the pier, turned around, and thought this scene was great.

I really love this old film feeling.┬áHere I’m using VSCO Film by Visual Supply Co. to get this look.

Strathisla Distillery

The Strathisla Distillery in Keith, Scotland is one of the smaller distilleries in the country. It’s a wonderful little place that’s also the home to Chivas Regal. Strathisla is one of the main whiskys that make up Chivas Regal. Luckily, we made it just in time for the last tour of the day. There were a few places where photography wasn’t allowed for various reasons but this shot was okay as it was outside the distillery walking from one building to another.

I wasn’t overly familiar with Chivas Regal and had never had Strathisla itself before visiting. Of course, there was a tasting at the end of the tour and we ended up taking home a bottle of the Strathisla Cask Strength. It’s really quite enjoyable. If you can get your hands on some, pick up a bottle!
