Summer Outing *UPDATE*

Final Revision of the Summer outing logistics with some comments from Andy Hall


Logistics


Sunday 19th May 2019

Ellon Park and Ride leave at 0900

Oldmeldrum Carpark - Leave at 0900


Stonehaven

Photographic opportunity at the Harbour: he Harbour Front at first light is a gem. In dull weather, there are lots of textures and colours in the creels, buoys, nets and chains. There are interesting eroded rocks just under the first cliffs as you walk north from the village of Cowie towards the golf course.


Morning Coffee

Target Cafe is Mollys but we can’t book so it may be that we are spread out other cafes are the old Pier Coffee house / The harbour Hut / Waterfront / etc


Heading South down the Coast road A90/ A92 we have a few options for photo opportunities


Dunottar Woods

Dunnottar Woods will be full of back-lit leaves in the midday sun


St. Palladius Church in Drumtochty Glen

Is worth a visit


Todhead Lighthouse

Is worth a visit if it is a bright sunny day with a blue sky, looking up at the abstract shapes with a long lens.


Crawton Waterfall / RSPB Scotland Fowlsheugh

Interesting clump of trees.


St Cyrus

Is gorgeous on a sunny day, particularly at the North End. You can pick up sand patterns and beach details on the way if you’re there at low tide.


Johnshaven Harbour


Viaduct at Kinnbar


before heading back to Gourdon for harbour Shots and a meal at the Quayside restaurant (1630/1700 Menus have been sent out by e-mail)

evening sun shots - better at the end of the day with directional light.
