CCS B&W Photo Challenge – Open Topic


Anstruther on the Firth of Forth, Kingdom of Fife, Scotland

I caught this image between heavy showers on the edge of the Firth of Forth. Clouds threatening more rain but a welcome blast of sunshine to temporarily lift the spirits. I thought I would leave the red life saver to add a touch of drama.

I also chose this image as it is also typical of the weather that we are currently “enjoying” in our part of the UK.  It is my suggestion for this weeks Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge.
