Ravenscraig-1-Nov15 Ravenscraig-2-Nov15

The recent fog is great for photography if you can be ready for the breaks when the sun comes through to provide enough light. There was the most amazing sunrise this morning as it broke through the horizon above the water and below the mist.  I watched The Theory of Everything at the weekend, which was brilliant; but as enticing as the science is, there are some days when the sun really does seem to be a golden disc rising in the sky just for you.

I was out with the family at Silversands, Aberdour, and the light was pretty good and the sea was calm. All kinds of people were paddling around in the flats of the bay enjoying the warm weather.

Do you get to a point with your photography where you can see the stage being set in front of you? All you have to do is be alert and follow the unfolding scene? This is where I have got t especially with coastal and seaside images , so I dived out of the cafe to take a few pictures.

Obviously photographing people on beaches these days could be horribly misconstrued. No Robert Frank Coney Island goings on nowadays, so I think images like this are also of a time – distant, anonymous, safe.
