That picture is absolutely beautiful. Many people find photos of buildings ready to fall down don’t understand the significance of that building. It has been used for generations. Who were the families that owned it. Most of the time it is passed down through the family lines. The pictures I like the best of fishing villages is the “widows watch”. I always think of the conditions in the 1800’s and can picture the worried wife of a fisherman who is 2 days late, just waiting for his boat to come back.

I agree, such a beautiful photo, Helen. What time of year was it taken?

    Thanks Hugh. It was last September. The weather on the east coast of Scotland is drier than on the West Coast.

      I was guessing at Autumn, as it looks so fresh, Helen. You’ve some beautiful photography, but this is one of my favourites.

Oooh! So pretty. It reminds me of our holiday in Jersey many years ago where we went with our parents to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Looks like this harbour also is worth a visit.

    Thanks Marga. I’ve never been to Jersey. The coastal villages in the Ancient Kingdom of Fife as it’s known are all beautiful.

A beautiful photo! What camera do you use?

    HMB · May 18, 2016 at 08:56

    Thanks Georgie. I checked back on my flickr stream to check camera details, expecting it would be trusty little Fuji x110s and was very surprised to see that it was my previous iPhone , a 5s. .
    The colour “punch” comes from a quick edit in Nik Snapseed a free app you can use on tablet or smartphone. When I say a quick edit I’m talking like a minute and 2 or 3 clicks.
    Thanks again for your interest.
    Not long now till your Odyssey.
    Kindest regards Helen

      Thanks. Someone else recommended Snapspeed to me, I’ll look at it. I’m really impressed by people’s iPhone photos!

        Snapseed is truly amazing. It’s easy to use. It’s free and it gives great results.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
