Kirkcaldy and Dysart

I’ve now completed the processing from the recent visit to Fife with images from a walk along part of the Fife Coast Path starting in Kirkcaldy. Kirkcaldy boast a fair few interesting old buildings including Kirkcaldy Old Kirk (featured image, top) and the Scandinavian influenced Town House (above).  Heading along the High Street there’s also […]

Dunfermline and North Queensferry

On my recent visit to Fife I explored a bit further from my base in St Andrews than I had previously with shoots further inland rather than just around the East Neuk of Fife.  One shoot took me to Dunfermline for the day, with a dusk shoot down at North Queensferry to admire the Forth […]

Tentsmuir Forest and Tayport at Dusk

During my recent trip to St Andrews I had my first visit to the nearby Tentsmuir Forest, which is an easy walk from Tayport on the northern Fife coast so I combined exploring the forest with a dusk shoot at Tayport harbour. I picked an afternoon with the most overcast and still weather forecast of […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Rock and Spindle

On my recent St Andrews shoot the most promising forecast for a decent sunrise shoot was (unfortunately) on the Sunday morning, so I was up at 5am to brave the hour’s walk along the Fife Coastal Path to the Rock and Spindle, which I’d seen during the day and at dusk before and thought it […]

Last Week’s Shoot – St Monans

This was my third visit to St Monans, one of the lovely fishing villages along the Fife coast, but my first opportunity to photograph the zig-zag breakwater from the harbour, which was the main reason for my return. I was spending a few days based in St Andrews and took a trip down to the […]

Travel Postcard – A Wander Around St Andrews

On the last day of my visit to St Andrews last month I’d done a sunrise shoot with glorious light, had breakfast and packed ready for the journey home, but my train wasn’t until later in the afternoon, so I had the time for a wander around the town with my OM-D for a few […]

Rocks and Light on the Sea at St Monans

Last Week’s Shoot – St Monans

As part of my recent trip to St Andrews I took a bus down to St Monans, one of the lovely East Neuk of Fife fishing villages, for the day, with a view to exploring some of the Fife Coastal Path from the village and the shooting sunset over the zig-zag shaped breakwater from the […]

The Castle at Sunrise and High Tide

Last Week’s Shoot – Castle Sands

One of my favourite subjects to shoot in St Andrews is the spectacular castle ruin on The Scores. It makes a great sunrise subject – and it’s only five minutes walk from the lovely apartment where I stay, which is a bonus! The sunrise shoot works best when a nice clear morning coincides with low […]

Moonrise over the Royal and Ancient Golf Club St Andrews Fife Scotland

Last Week’s Shoot – St Andrews

I’m just back from a trip to St Andrews, which has become a regular winter visit over the past few years with delightful sunrise and sunset locations available just a short walk from the cosy flat on The Scores and so much more to explore along the Fife coast. I’ve barely scratched the surface with […]

Rocks and Sea on the Fife Coast

St Andrews from the Fife Coastal Path

I returned to the Fife Coastal Path heading away from St Andrews from East Sands.  There’s an older path which forks away from the main coastal trail which leads down to a lovely viewpoint with a bench looking back over the bay towards St Andrews.  But this location had much more to offer than a […]
