I love beaches. Any beaches. I would love to live overlooking a beach and hear the sea whilst I’m in my bed. Blackness beach is NOT a sunbathing kind of beach, the water is black and inky and can sometimes wash up all manner of rubbish.
However…..this beach is beautiful. With views to Blackness Castle, the Forth Road Bridge, Fife – littered with washed up glass, driftwood and shells and woodland on one side, I feel very lucky to have such a lovely historic spot on my doorstep.
I love the way the light moves in Autumn. These shots were taken today in the afternoon sun. I was lucky to catch them as this morning started out dark and rainy, then by lunchtime (always a bonus to have an early finish mid week) the sun was twinkling in the breeze.
Cheating a little on this post as I took this back in the summer, again with my Nikon D90 and 50 lens. Thought it would make a nice mid week post. We were out for lunch in a bar in Edinburgh, waiting on our starters to arrive. I was sipping red wine….okay I was tipping it back and Jonny just happened to look up with those lovely brown eyes!
I adore this time of year…think it has to be my favourite. The leaves are turning, the wind is gently whispering with the nights drawing in. The light is sometimes breathtaking.
These shots were taken this morning whilst I was waiting for my coffee to brew. The trees behind our garden were dancing in the wind with bursts of Autumnal sun peeking through, creating beautiful shadows of my lanterns and the breeze…..think my windows could do with a clean through!!!
Enjoy your Sunday!
