A coastal harbour town in Scotland


Fishing boats in wait,
Metal clangs, a seagull calls,
But otherwise still,

Fishermen resting
In cottages, a respite,
From the cold hard seas,

Wire mesh, wooden slats,
Lobster pots piled by the side,
Waiting for their bait,

A visitor walks,
Taking photos, fingers numb,
Scotland’s winter coast


These are a few photographs I took in Anstruther; a small former fishing village on the East Coast of Scotland. They were taken last winter, it was super cold and my fingers were numb holding the camera 🙂

hey, thank you for the nomination, I’m not really sure I’m into awards, so I probably wouldn’t post about it on my blog. But thank you anyway and look forward to seeing more about your travels.

Hey, thank you so much, I’m glad you like them, it’s nice to think about something to write to share a feeling about the place 🙂
