Making photographs, not just taking them – Dundee, Tayside, Scotland

Dark and cold night

It was another cold dark wintery night, sounds about right for an evening shoot with the folks over on PK Perspective and Baked Tatties.  This time Dundee was the destination (not far for me to travel then) mainly the Tay Road Bridge both the Fife side and the Dundee side down at City Quay.

Given how dark it was there was little to shoot on the Fife side other than the bridge itself and the views across to Dundee and along the coast to Broughty Ferry beyond the docks, with a few stars through in:

Back on the Dundee side of the bridge there was more to capture, ranging from the Apex Hotel, the Frigate Unicorn, another footbridge across the harbour, the listed dock sheds that are now mainly places to eat or offices, the Clock Tower that has just been refurbished into luxury flats to, surprise surprise, the Tay Road Bridge again:

Not exactly the images I had planned to get (I had visions of finding a high point about a busy road and trying out long exposures of the traffic passing by) but I did get some I really liked.  My other ideas can wait until another day and another shoot, preferably on a warmer night (i.e. not when it’s 2 degrees again!).

Note – some of these images and others are available to order either direct from myself (using the contact page) or via Photo4Me
