Blue hour - in a tiny Scottsih fishing village
« on: March 18, 2024, 05:32:22 pm »

Totally unplanned and something of a bonus shot really. As I had already taken several dozen shots of the harbour wall in the opposite direction, during what turned out to be a quite nice seascape sunset. But then as I started to pack away my gear, I decided to turn the camera around 180 on the tripod and fire off one last long exposure shot of the village itself and this is the result.

So yes, really quite chuffed with this one  ;)

Well I don't know if chuffed is anything like clussy, but this is really great!

I think your image just defined for me the term picturesque.

Sorry David for using a word that is not international in its understanding. But for us here in the UK, "chuffed" means very pleased - as briefly explanied here  ;D

Picturesque, yes I agree  ;)

Pretty nice, Dave!

Another reason that it's a good idea to take a 360 look before packing up for the evening.

I like it a lot... The blue hour and this little harbour look perfect together!

Quite right Larry.

In fact I think we should spend nearly as much time looking over our shoulders, as we do looking at the main thing we are photographing.  ;)

Thanks everyone, glad you all like it  ;)

Here is the shot of the wonky harbour wall at sunset, that I had been concentrating on taking, just prior to the above "Blue Hour" shot and which had been the real focus of all my attention that evening. So to grab that one and then fire off another shot in the opposite direction, for no other reason than it seemed a good idea as I started to strip down my kit, was a real bonus that I just wasn't expecting, or had planned for.

But hey, I will take it as a win and be happy to accept any other bonus shots, that I can stumble across along the way  ;D

And here are another couple of shots of the same view of the Wonky Harbour Wall at St Monan's, that I took the following morning around dawn.

I agree, this is my favorite of the zigzags. It reminds me (a tiny bit) Mesa Arch where the light makes the stone look like ember.

Thanks again everyone  ;D ;D ;D

If ever you are in Scotland for photography and especially on the East coast, then a trip out to the tiny fishing village of St Monan's, really is a must.
