Bass Rock

Photo Information
Following the Croft Nostalgia Weekend, I headed up to Scotland on family matters and then ambled back south via North Berwick, WWT Washington and other photogenic locations. Well-known gannet colony Bass Rock was bathed in extraordinary light when Mrs A and I paused in North Berwick. Taken with K-3 and Tamron 70-200 f2.8.

I'll probably never need to buy another lens, but if I came into a legacy that Tamron would be at the top of my list. A lovely and unusual seascape.
Best wishes,

Amazing light Simon.

I have only been there once - 2 years ago and was blessed with a double rainbow arching from the land to the rock - needless to say I had the 10-20 on the camera when it needed the 70-200 and made a total hash of it

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

I've never seen Bass Rock looking like this before, I always saw it as a huge, impressive black rock sticking out of the Firth of Forth. The sunlight on the bird poo has turned it white here and what an eye catching photo it makes.
