Continuing the theme of failed attempts to do astrophotography, I spent an evening out at Newport-on-Tay in Fife. There’s a neat little road leading down to a carpark with a tiny beach and rocky outcrop… with the interplay of artificial lights and huge blanket of fog, it needed photographing 🙂
From wikipedia: The Caledonian Forest is the name given to the former (ancient old-growth) temperate rainforest of Scotland. The known extent of the Roman occupation suggests that it was north of the Clyde and west of the Tay. The Scots pines of the Caledonian Forest are directly descended from the first pines to arrive in Scotland […]
A fairly obvious shot from a viewing location on the south side of the Tay, the road bridge disappearing in a stream of lights flowing to Dundee in the fog. At night. As a long exposure, because it’s what one does, right?
This is what it looked like, walking Dog through the local woods this morning.
Photos of trees in the mist
Taken during a lunchtime stroll down to Portpatrick: a moderate haar from the sea, obscuring the village in the distance.
Am exercise in composition, as much as anything – a thick mist reducing visibility to a couple of hundred yards, whilst out with Dog.
Not much of a view…
