If there is a stretch of coast in Scotland that has a string of fishing villages more picturesque than those of the East Nuek of Fife I do not know where they are. On a warm summers day the villages of Elie, St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail and the coast line between them are simply stunning. On a clear day the coast affords views out across the Firth of Forth to North Berwick and the Isle of May with Dolphins a common site and breading birds a plenty, it is a simply wonderful spot.Continue reading “East Neuk of Fife”

It was all looking so promising.
Good sunsets have been a rare thing of late in Fuerteventura – the photographers curse of cloud on the horizon has been an all to frequent phenomenon over recent weeks. But this evening looked promising for a decent El Cotillo show, cloud was moving down from the north giving some nice broken cloud over the island but the sky to the west over the Atlantic was clear so it looked good for the sun getting under the island cloud and thus giving that much desired fiery show.
The west coast of Fueteventura is a largely rugged and remote with hardly any safe harbours. Access is generally difficult without a 4×4 – only a handful of spots are accessable by surfaced road.
Burgh Island is a tidal island just off the coast of south-west Devon. At high tide the island and its Art Deco hotel can be reached by a sea-tractor at low tide you can walk across the sand causeway. The island is visible from many miles along the coast.
On duty to help out unfortunate swimmers and surfers at Bantham Beach the RNLI Lifeguards have a range of lifesaving gear at their disposal and which for the photographer make strong colourful subjects.
