Managed to get out on another evening shoot with the good folks over at PK Perspective. This time we ended up exploring Auchmithie harbour, just up the coast from Arbroath.
Only one of the five of us had actually been before so we didn’t know what to expect, what we found was a brilliant little pebble beach and rocks next to a run down harbour, surrounded by cliffs. It was a truly great place to be taking photos that night as the tide was on it’s way out (must have dropped 8-10 meters in the few hours we were there) leaving wet shiny pebbles, while the waves still crashed in. Pity we didn’t get the sunset we hoped for (the sky never became colourful) but then again the harbour was facing East so it wouldn’t have worked out anyway.
Here is a selection of what I managed to capture:
Due to all the pebbles I was suckered into playing around with them and trying out something I had seen over on 500px by Iain Blake (I would suggest people go and see his work):
For any local photographers interested in landscape or long exposure shots then I would recommend taking a trip down to Auchmithie harbour. I’m hoping to return sometime preferably before sunrise to try and capture the sun coming up (or the colours pre sunrise) as well as the waves breaking over the rocks and pebbles.
