On Sunday 8th October 9 members of Kirkcaldy Photographic Society travelled to the Holy Island, south of Berwick. We set off early, in order, to access the causeway at low tide. This is a popular location and we were eager to go forth and bag the best spots before the other camera clubs ….and we did ! One club had travelled from Dorset. The sky was overcast, at times however this did lend itself to some dramatic and atmospheric pictures, as you can see from the shots which have been posted. Holy Island castle was obscured a little by scaffolding so our attention was turned to the surrounding landscape and points of interest such as old boats converted into sheds. The harbour provided some excellent opportunities.
Stopping for lunch the intrepid Mandy and Ali cooked up a storm and the smell of bacon and sliced sausage was a thing to behold. Feeling replenished it was onward to Bamburgh Castle. The light across the castle was perfect and bathed the stonework in blue hues. The weather was warm and an incoming tide gave us plenty to photograph. There were a variety of landscape shots and action shots as the surfers glided across the incoming waves. The sand dunes and rock formations at the lighthouse were particularly attractive. A lot of information and tips were shared, my favourite part. Setting off for home at 3pm, a good day was had by all. Looking forward to our next outing in December, to Edinburgh, where we can combine some street photography with a little Christmas spirit.
