Spring, nearly

feels like it’s just around the corner, here’s to hoping. In any case the light was nice, wasn’t warm, but pleasant to walk about, as long as you weren’t hanging about in the shade.

Better weather just around the corner?

All these photo’s were around Musselburgh,  just a short walk today, need to get up to Newhailes in the next wee while.

and playing about with ‘pin it’ button

 

went for a wee walk on Thursday..

.. walked from Seafield,  along the promenade back hame to Musselburgh.  Managed to get a couple or so photos.

Started by taking a photo of the first thing I saw after crossing the road,

this is Cockenzie power station, viewed through the fences and trees of Seafield water treatment works, lovely, but at least the wind was in the right direction.

 

a short while later and on the other side of the road

was the lion of Arthur’s seat, with a lovely industrial scene in the foreground.

 

soon sort that out,

david-spiers-5119

that’s a wee bit better.

And a few yards down the road a better view,

with no nasty industrial stuff in the foreground, well after I took out the recycling centre.

Just down the road, joined the promenade

with a view of the beach in the foreground and Fife in the background, with the island of Inchkeith to the left of the shot.

at the same spot

North Berwick law in the background and a small rock in the foreground.

but kinda thought there was too much space between the rocks.

So took out some of the offending water, not too much?

 

And a wider view of the same position,

showing the foreshore from Dirleton on the left to Cockenzie on the right.

 

Same view

but focusing on the clouds, I like clouds.

 

and on

Cockenzie power station with Jingling hill and Hopetoun monument on the left

a short way along the promenade

the start of the fencing, thought this might make a nice shot, with Portobello in the background.

of sea and sky, aye, I like sky’s

So its good to get some exercise,  4 and a bit miles, only took a bit over 2 hours, that’s what happens when you carry a camera.
