Winter night wander out to break cabin fever

Cabin fever has been setting in and I had to get out for some photos. I had 4 places in mind but we ended restricted time wise as we only got out at 8pm.

First off to Linlithgow palace. Did a bit of research to see where the moon would come up and where to park. Off we went and of course the weather is currently foul. We were lucky to get a gap in the rain but the clouds killed any chance of the moon coming out for a peek. Went for a walk around the water and looked for a space between the trees to get the tripods set up. Eventually got a spot where the trees has fallen into the water. It made for a nice foreground interest for the photo. After that we walked around to get some lights reflecting in the water.

After all that we went looking for the Forth and Blackness castle. I have been trying to get my steelwool kit
set up and last night was the test night. I had a few ideas and did two photos of light play with lit steelwool.

Sunrise at Bamburgh beach Part1

I went to take some sunrise photos and found myself a bit earlier than expected at my chosen location. Rather than wait for sunrise there I decided to use the extra time and continue further south to Bamburgh castle. I was not disappointed.
