Recently I took some photographs of the East Neuk fishing villages in Fife, Scotland. The place has such a character that appeals to me. I love the quaintness, colours and architecture along the whole coastline.
East Neuk is so photogenic!
You'll have to imagine the calm waters from the harbour quay filled with fishing boats, colourful nets and lobster pots. Think of the sea, rock pools, golden sands and the call of the gulls. While the streets are lined with quirky cottages. Brightly painted walls and windows complimented by window boxes full of summer flowers.
Thick grey clouds blanketed the sky. However I could see just a few breaks far into the horizon. On clearer days there's a good view over the Forth of Firth. But after all this was the first day it hadn't rained in a week. Dull but at least dry. Furthermore it was good to get outdoors again with my camera. See East Neuk Cottages for further photos.
Hi Rosie, you are already way-way far from the original blogpost i am introduced in! I appreciate your progress both in real life and in blogposts. I also learn a lot from you and thanks for all those tips. You know Scotland is a dream place for me, so when i posted my very foggy scenes, which seldom happens here in the tropics, i said i am thinking that i am in Scotland 🙂
Hi Rosie, what a beautiful set! Love anywhere along the coast, so I love all your photos. I really like the lobster pots and nets.
It looks like a wonderful idyllic holiday, and the quote is entirely apt 🙂
thanks for the visit, have a great week.
Goodness, Rosie…these are SO beautiful. Love each and every one!
