The Old Pier, North Berwick, July 2017
Despite being July, a cold North wind and driving drizzly rain, the kind that coats and sticks to your lens had forced me to go in search of a different composition to the one I was aiming for and I’m extremely happy that it had.
I found a quiet, sheltered spot on the rocks and lined up my composition. The sky was light grey with little definition, the sea choppy and unpredictable so I decided on a long exposure. I had no idea just how beautiful the end result would be. The 45 second exposure smoothing out the waves and leaving this sublime aquamarine colour that contrasted perfectly against the yellow of the pier beacon. Fidra Island in the background was barely visible through the haze but the long exposure picked it out beautifully. I couldn’t be happier with how this shot came out. One of my absolute favourite images.
