Back to the Front | Kirkcudbright Harbour.
Life has settled into a new-old rhythm lately and, now that I have a little less time on my hands, it’s time to reflect on those days when I had an awful lot more time to do the very same thing.
Whenever I have a day to kick my heels, I often think about coming back to Kirkcudbright, a place I love so much and have spend many, many happy hours wandering around with my cameras, shooting around the harbour in particular – satisfying my utter love of water, boats and glorious light; albeit the low, early winter sun. Just a couple of weeks ago the jaunt was made again, instigated by the surety of a perfect day for shooting and, checking the tide-times only solidified intentions. Few ever walk the jetty to the pontoons; whenever I come, there’s hardly ever another soul to be seen and I guess that’s another reason as to why I love this spot as much as I do. Listening to the wind slapping the lines against their masts is an inspiration in itself and I can take minutes just thinking about a single frame – but what’s not to love about that?
For as long as I am still shooting, I know that I’ll come back here again and again. I’ll probably take the same shots over too and from the same places, but when inner peace is so easily found and there’s someone to share it all with, I don’t have a problem with that. At all. I do hope you’ll enjoy these few IR captures and, come back for another look too, perhaps?
Have a great weekend, peeps.
