I may start to sound like a broken record if I don’t stop expressing my love for Seacliff beach soon. But I can’t! It is by far the most impressive and varied beach near Edinburgh, offering endless possibilities for seascape photographers. Both sunrise and sunset can work, depending on the season. I had recently visited Seacliff beach to photograph the sunset, but there was no time to shoot all the compositions I had in mind. This meant that another imminent trip to this beach was in the cards!

I have always liked the view over Tantallon castle, but I don’t have many photographs where it’s in frame. A reason for this is that I have mainly been photographing on Seacliff beach at sunrise le viagra 50 mg. I generally like sunrise more than sunset, despite the resulting lack of sleep, mainly because of the fact that most locations are deserted at that time of day. But in summer the sun sets at a great position at Seacliff beach, and it would be a shame to miss this opportunity. I settled for this composition using my wide-angle, which shows both Tantallon castle and the mighty Bass Rock.

I find the rocks at Seaclff beach fascinating. The richness in textures and shapes is truly remarkable and a photographer’s delight. There are some great rockpools as well which dry up at lower tide. Here you can see one which is now still completely flooded.

Another one taken a little bit later during twilight, when the colour temperature started cooling down giving rise to some beautiful blue tones. There was surprisingly little swell, but I here wanted to get some water movement in the sea by using a shorter exposure time. I quite liked the small bed of seaweed in the foreground which I used the accentuate the curved leading line pointing towards the Bass Rock.

I realize that this is a very short trip report, but I hope that the pictures have compensated for the lack of words!
