The East Lothian coast is my local patch. I love it and there are countless pictures to be had in all conditions. I had a couple of hours to spare at sunset tonight, or this afternoon as it is so early at this time of year, so I headed down to North Berwick. The sea had a good swell and there was some lovely late golden hour light. I stood where I have stood a good few times and tried to hit the shutter at the decisive moment to catch the waves crashing over the pier. It is a shot I and other have taken many times but there are many choices in composition and of course the sea is never the same twice.
I was pretty happy with my efforts and probably secured my best shot at the venue so far. I enjoyed it a wee bit too much as when I went round to take the boating pond shot the sea had already covered my foreground interest. There was still a half hour to sunset so I toddled off down to Dunbar to take another Bridge to Nowhere shot. I have visited here many times shooting sunsets and Auroras but tonight there was a spring tide and it looked good for a minimalist composition and the blue hour produced the best image. This was exposed for 5 minutes with the tripod sat on top of the picnic table to get as much separation as I could between the bridge and horizon. Turned out well I think and again possibly the best I have managed from the venue. I particularly like the Bass Rock receding into the mist in the background.
