Photographer's Note

I have shown you pictures of the Bass Rock from Seacliff and even from the ruined ramparts of Tantallon Castle but those pictures were taken from the south. So what a surprise when I met up with two of my daughters, a son-in-law and two grandchildren in Anstruther on the southeast Fife coast, that I should discover that I could actually see the Bass Rock across the Firth of Forth from the north!

We met in Anstruther in time for a few shots of the children and some fun on the beach but the sky was heavy and threatening and I managed to get this shot acoss the harbour of a couple of people preparing to do some fishing at the end of the harbour wall. You can see the Bass Rock behind them to the left with the East Lothian coastline beyond. North Berwick must be off to the right.

As predicted, thunder and lightning ensued together with a heavy downpour of rain. But we were only a couple of minutes' walk from The Anstruther Fish Bar so we rushed there for shelter and we all had a "Fish Tea" - fish and chips with a slice of bread and butter and a mug of tea - all with lashings of salt, vinegar and sauce.

Supposedly the best fish and chips in the land! Brilliant!
