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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Rock and Spindle at Sunset

The Rock and Spindle

Following on from the dusk and dawn shoots in St Andrews itself I decided to head south along the Fife Coastal Path to have a look at the unusual rock formation called the Rock and Spindle below Kinkell Braes between St Andrews and Boarhills. I had seen the formation once before on a longer walk […]

Pier at St Andrews Harbour before Dawn

St Andrews at Dusk and Dawn

The weather was far from ideal during my recent trip to St Andrews, but there was still some great photography to be had at dusk and dawn.  Here are a few images from the first couple of days of my visit. I headed out to the rocks at the end of West Sands, Doo Craigs, […]

Sand Patterns on the Beach at Airbow Point near Kingsbarns

Travel Postcard – Fife Coastal Path from Kingsbarns

In this travel postcard, Mark heads to Scotland and explores the Fife Coast from Kingsbarns up to St Andrews…   I took an early bus in St Andrews headed down the coast towards Crail and got off at the pretty village of Kingsbarns.  I’d noticed Buddo Rock and the Rock and Spindle formations on my […]
