Brora photos '20

Recommended Posts

I was on my own this weekend, so opted for a walk from Golspie to Brora. I either jump on the bus or the train and then walk back along the shore. It's a good 6 mile hike, and I really enjoy it, it's one of my favourite walks. Here are my keepers, all usable professionally and will be added to my stock portfolio during the next submission.

It was lovely down the beach, but a bit on the chilly side. When the sun comes out you can feel a touch of warmth in its smile. As I was on my own I decided to have some fun with a compass and a sea shell. Have I told you how much I love my Fuji 200mm f2? No coffee on the way home today, as Cocoa Skye was closed. Never mind, I had fun working on these photos at home with a cup of instant coffee.

It was pleasant down the shore yesterday, and you can definitely feel things warming up slightly. I had to stop and take a fleece off, and I also didn't need my woolly hat. Love this time of year. There was a bit of swell breaking close to shore, but the sea was calm.

Spotted my first tern of the year. It dived into the sea, nabbed a fish, and then got mugged by a seagull. It might be a Great Skua, as mugging other birds is what they do, but I can't be sure from this photo. If you look closely you can see the fish in the terns gob.

The coast was beautiful and The Coves looked amazing.

It was so clear you could see right across the Moray Firth to the Cairngorm Mountains covered in snow.

I had on the 200mm f/2 so I couldn't walk past this whelk and these limpets and barnacles. A branch washed up on the shore caught my eye as well.

It was seals I was on the lookout for and there were a few around. I had to wait an hour and do some careful stepping from rock to rock to get close enough to get these two photos. Great photowalk, can't wait until the next time I can get out.

Today's walk was in glorious sunshine with some real warmth coming through. Not the best light for photos, but it was still good to feel the sun. I set off along the back shore, walked through The Doll and returned to Brora through Badnellan. Saw my first lambs today, and the seals were enjoying a beach party in the sun.
