Took a risky trip to South Queensferry to shoot the Rail Bridge. Risky because it's been misty for the last few days and there was a strong possibility of coming away with nothing. (ed: You mean you didn't?)

As it was I had to work quite hard in Photoplop to pull any colour from the shots. The reason the images are all different colours is because I like to mess around with the White Balance in ACR. To be honest, probably only one of these shots was actually required - they are all pretty much identical except for minor compositional changes and crops. Having 8 shots the same colour would be a bit boring so why not have a bugger around with the White Balance!?

This time, Ross and I took a trip to Yellowcraigs just outside Dirleton in East Lothian. The plan was to get a nice seascape of Fidra. You know what they say about plans!

One of my contacts on Flickr had posted a shot from this place and I immediately fell in love with the sea wall/sea defence/art installation. It was such an interesting shape and as many have said, kinda looks like a snake :)

I put St Monans on my “to do” list of places to visit and was planning to go with Ross. I wanted a partner, if nothing else, just to cut down on the fuel costs (this shot cost me nearly £25 on petrol alone!) Sadly Rossco’s middle name is “Can’t” and he came up with some ingenious reason not to go.

I was out a week or so before this trip, almost the first time this year, to do some images for a tutorial I'm writing on how to use the very excellent Image Averaging technique I saw mentioned on Flickr.

Organisation for this trip was a bit of a disaster if truth be told. I set my alarm for 4:45am intending to go to Dunbar for a sunrise at the old harbour. Sadly I forgot to actually turn the alarm on!
