Saltcoats sunset

My first landscape pictures for a while and funnily enough it was only a mile from my door!

I watched the sunset develop from my house and when I decided that it might be promising, I left the house.  In the end the sunset didn’t really meet my expectations, the bank of cloud I had been watching for the previous hour never moved on quick enough to give me some clear sky around the setting sun to really light up the clouds above.

Still what I managed to get was okay and I chose these four images as my pick of the bunch. This was an ideal restart to my landscape shooting as I was only out the door for an hour at the most:).

Saltcoats Sunset

Another nice day on Saturday. As the afternoon wore on the conditions looked good for some shots. I decided to head out for an hour or so down to the beach at Saltcoats to try and capture the sunset.
In the end I was rewarded with a bank of cloud moving in, which was turned an angry shade of red for about 5 minutes after the sun had set behind the Isle of Arran. Another trip well worthwhile, especially when it’s only a couple of minutes down the road.

Snow in Ardrossan

This is the view from a couple of days ago. I woke up in the morning to see that overnight a couple of inches of snow had fallen. It was a lovely crisp morning so I ventured out down to the shorefront to get this shot. This is Ardrossan South Beach and in the distance is the Isle of Arran.

Ardrossan Sunsets

Another trip through the archive.  This post was inspired by a recent comment regarding Ardrossan sunsets.  I realised that a lot of them were either sitting on my hard drive or on my pbase site.  So here are another 2 or 3 old images from the great summer of 2006.

Golden sunset.

Saltcoats Sunset

Todays archive post is from 2007 and is of a Saltcoats Sunset.  Another quick trip out to catch the sunset, which wasn’t too bad.
