Seascapes - Rock pools, coastal features and natural patterns - Seacliff Beach - 10am - 2 hours
Seacliff Beach is known for being among the best beaches south of Edinburgh for landscape photography. There are many features to be found among the rock pools and small harbour hewn into the rock. A natural feature known as 'the cauldron' may allow for some practice or instruction into using filters. Beginners can find interest in the coastal features - but for those interested in using filters there will be some instruction on how to use ND filters to achieve a more abstract look.
