Open Golf Championship 2012. Warning !


posted on 12th of july, 2012

As I have admitted before I am addicted to photography and will go almost anywhere and pay whatever it takes to get interesting, preferably unique, images.

Living in Inverness there has been publicity for some time about the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open Golf Championship and because today it was not raining I decided to go and get some great pictures of internationally celebrated Golfers. I thought this being Summertime play would go on until late evening. Wrong. Last tee off was said to be 2 30 pm. so the play would be over by 5pm.
I drove the 10 miles to Castle Stuart Golf Course arriving at 3 30pm
I paid a concession rate of £25 to enter, then £5 for a programme. Knowing there was only one and half hours of play left I quickly made my way to the final fairway.

Hi there I used to work for a photo agency, and we had to apply for press passes to cover golf. The noise of the shutter may be the official reason, but what they are doing are protecting their commercial rights. Its the same with most sporting events. Unless you are accreditaed, then they are likely to stop you. Same with snooker, rugby, tennis etc. Don't even start me of English football - you have to have a licence from the PLFA or Data Co for the lower leagues.

Peanut roaster in a great article says they don't make them like this anymore but really it is just as well........ you need to double declutch to change gear in this old Austin 7
Inverness in Scotland had its own Classic Car Rally a few weeks ago.
I loved the Morris 1000 open tourer which looked even better than the one I owned in the 1970's...... why they didnt beat VW Beetles I will never know.
Another example on show was a British Mini car turned into a wedding car
and presumably creating a new business...... Yesterday I saw a van with the logo Dog Walkers. yet another creative business idea. On show there was also an example of the most famous brand, a Rolls Royce

My favourite was a fairly modern Lotus...
