16 Mar Beautiful Seacliff

I had another opportunity to visit one of my favourite locations here on the East Lothian coast and that is the small sandy beach at Seacliff.

The beach is reached via a private road (there is a £3 charge to access the road)  and it leads down to the car park behind the cove.  As you look out in front Bass Rock is right in front, to the left is the Gegan and the tiny harbour and to the right is St Baldred’s Cross, which is the outer marker for the Firth of Forth.

Once you get onto the beach you can look across and see the ruins of Tantallon Castle on the cliff top.

The reason for the visit was to allow a fellow photographer the opportunity test the X-T2 and XF100-400mm on his favourite genre – wildlife.  So we headed to the cliffs by the Gegan to take some shots of the Fulmars that are starting to set up home in the cliffs.

All images shot on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 with a XF10-24mm f4 or Fujifilm X-T2 with a XF100-400mm f4.5/5.6
