A Quickie In Ainster

Two weeks off work and only out once with the Canon, a bit disappointed really but a lot of rain, a lot of beer and a lot of whisky all adds up to not much photography.
HAPPY NEW YEAR by the way.
Was getting a bit twitchy and in need of some recreational but the weather ( as usual ) was none too good so I decided to keep it local, one of the benifits of living in Glenrothes is that the East Neuk of Fife is on the door step so I loaded up and headed off to Anstruther for a couple of hours with very little optimism but you don't know if you don't go. I arrived there early afternoon and the sun was trying to break through most of the time giving the occasional half minute of light but didn't hang about long when it did appear through the cloud layer so it was very much ( the photographers first law ) set up and wait
All the way up the East Neuk from Lower Largo through Elie, St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther, Crail and on to St Andrews is a lovely part of the country with picturesque harbours, sandy and shingle beaches old buildings and a plethora of other delights waiting to be discovered and turned into photographic masterpieces and is really worth a visit whether to take photographs or just to wander around and enjoy the surroundings
