Crail – East Neuk


I had a lovely day in Crail today with a friend, taking photographs and eating cakes naturally. The sky was only just south of crap for photography, and so I resorted to the sensible photographer’s trick of totally excluding the sky from my shots. A telephoto zoom, in this case my 70-300 is ideal for the job. Luckily Crail lends itself to this with its distinctive buildings in dramatic tiers around the harbour. If you haven’t visited the East Neuk of fife, I would urge you to do so; it’s beautiful.

  • Good for you. I’ve not taken a photo for weeks now because of the continuing lousy weather.

  • I love this shot, Matthew! The juxtaposition of reds, grays, and reddish browns is wonderful!

    What a wonderful shot of an interesting place. I love the jumble of angles, textures and colour, especially the deep turquoise in the window up high to the right which is echoed by the post in the foreground.
