Dumfries & Galloway part 2

Visited the wreck of the schooner called Monreith at Nun Mill bay. It struck a sand bar on the 12th November 1900 and we can still see the ribs of the ship today.


Thank you for viewing


Visiting Carlingnose point pier, Forth estuary.

After years of looking at this pier online it was time to visit it. Was a great morning at North Queensferry.

This pier was used during the wars and is slowly dissapearing, more info can be found below.





Thank you for the support and watching

The beaches of Berwick-upon-tweed & Bamburgh.

I have had this trip planned and in my calendar for months. Every aspect was planned ahead of time. Time of sunrise, location of the sun on the horison, where to stand on the beach, tide level, etc. Every thing was planned BUT you cvan’t plan for the weather. You get what you get.

Part 2

Thanks for watching.


Long sea front exposure on winter’s morning

These photos were taken at Torness nuclear power station just East of Edinburgh during a windy and stormy winter’s morning.

I took these photos a year ago and I’m very proud of them. My 1st attempt at sea waves and long exposure.

I did think I have posted them before but I can’t see them on here.

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.

View from Kincardine bridge at sunrise

After visiting the Kelpies I popped over to Kincardine bridge to catch sunrise. At 1st I thought it was a waste of time but perseverance pays off in the photography game. It took me a while to decide to post these photo up but the more I look at them the more I like them. I kept the photos as dark as I took them, I feel they come across better. The power station is Longannet and the refinery is Grangemouth.

Aberdour pier at sunrise

Right after finishing off at Grangemouth I crossed the Forth looking for one of two piers I found using Google maps.

Arrived at Aberdour with 30min to go before sunrise. I was very lucky to have low tide as well which allowed extra potential photos.

Lots of long exposures photos followed using my tripod, remote trigger, ND filter, 24-105mm L F4 and Canon 7D. I thought I will give the 7D a try and if it goes well get rid of the 1D mark III (get another 7D as a backup camera). Finally left after midday feeling like I had some good fun and might have some great shots.

Here’s the 1st bunch taken around sunrise.
