We’ve just been for a walk on one of the the beaches in Kirkcudbright Bay – just a short distance from home. It’s cold out there and the lighting is very dramatic – showers with brief spells of sunshine breaking through the black clouds. Ideal weather for landscape and seascape photography.
I wasn’t planning on taking pictures today, just to poke about the rock pools, throw some pebbles into the sea, relax, breathe the glorious sea air. But how can a photographer ignore a view like this? I suppose a photographer never really has a day off – how can you stop seeing?
I have photographed this scene many times in different lighting conditions and during different seasons of the year, but I just had to reach for a camera and capture it again this afternoon.
Fortunately I am rarely without a compact camera – usually a little Canon Ixus.
Bonnie Galloway in SW Scotland is such a beautiful place – it’s always wise to carry a camera.
