Many moons ago I read a Q&A with New Zealand landscape photographer Andris Apse. Among the things he talked about was, and I paraphrase, the importance of not deciding which image to keep until months after it was shot and processed. The idea being that you're likely to be more critical when you don't have the same emotional connection to the piece because you've just spent lots of time working on it (shooting and processing)

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!

Ross often bangs on about Dysart in Fife. Almost to the point of me needing to kill myself. OK I exaggerate for effect and when you see the work done by Alan Arnott (Vivid Image), you can understand his enthusiasm for the area.

Anyway, I decided to head up early one morning to see what the fuss was about.

Shooting Diary

Ross and I went for a scouting trip to a few bits of Fife. We stopped at Carlingnose Point which is where this was shot. We wandered along to the old breakwater at Seafield in Kirkcaldy and then headed out to Elie for the sunset.

The trip to Coldingham was the 3rd outing in a 3 day bender! Believe me I struggle to get out once a month, never mind 3 times in 2 days! 

I'd been keeping an eye on this spot though my "Virtual Scouting" which involves OS maps, Google Earth and The Photographer's Ephemeris. What I hadn't found was many pictures that showed this sea-stack. This had me worrying that maybe it was just a poor location.
