I was out early yesterday, enjoying a bit of early morning sun on the promenade at Portobello. There’s a whole lot of water on the beach at low tide at the moment, which is making for some good opportunities for reflection photos. Here’s the Espy, at the bottom of Bath Street.
Ripples in the sand at Portobello near Edinburgh
One of the things I love about living in Scotland, is how easy it is to get to such a wide variety of places. In and around Edinburgh, there’s plenty of options for city photos, but the coast is also pretty handy. This is one of my favourite nearby places for a quick fix of landscape photography.
Clouds reflected on Portobello beach
I seem to be finding all sorts of reflections around at the moment. I loved this mix of the ripples on the sand on Portobello beach and the clouds reflected in the water.

There were some amazing clouds around this morning at Portobello beach, just as the tide was heading out. It made for some interesting effects around the shore.

Wow…the drummers were a fantastic sight on the Portobello ‘cakestand’ this afternoon!

This dog was raring to go, flinging itself into the sea after whatever the owner was throwing in…I’m using a bit of creative license to assume there must have been the odd stick and stone in the collection he was trying to retrieve!

There will be music, more photos and of course the lovely new CD at Mairi Campbell’s CD launch event on Monday 16th May. Looking forward to that immensely!
