inclement weather makes for better photography…

There is just something about inclement weather and the seaside…maybe it’s just me, but everything looks so much better… These shots were taken at Tyninghame beach about half an hours drive outside Edinburgh. Nobody there except for us and one very hardy fisherman…

That’s the Bass Rock in the distance being enveloped by the weather, a volcanic plug in the Firth of Forth, it was a prison in the 17th century. I read that prisoners used to be executed by fixing a fish to their head so that a diving gannet would pierce the skull…not sure about the veracity of this however… Now it is now protected bird sanctuary.

Apparently, when they are biting he catches flounder and sea bass…
