Evening Light, St Monans

Inner basin, St Monans, East Neuk, Fife. Too much wind and spray to have a go at the Zedwater so I settled for the inner harbour instead.

Dark Shadows Falling

Departing from Fife this week, this photograph was captured in the early evening on the summit of Goatfell, Isle of Arran. Taken under ever changing light. North Goatfell is lit by the sun. Developed the RAW file through Fuji software choosing the Velvia1 style this time.

The Tay Bridge from a different perspective in the gloaming light. The bricks in the foreground are part of the remains of the original bridge.

Last Light, Dysart

Dysart, Fife Coast, on a still evening. First LE with the Fuji X-E2. Still on a learning curve but I am spending less and less time developing images as the files look great straight from the card.

Moody Blues

One from a sunset shoot at Crombie Point earlier in May. Taken about 15 minutes after sunset and after the intense red colours in the cloud had subsided. Manually blended this from two shots using layer masks in Photoshop.
