Today was a weird day around Edinburgh the Lothians and Fife. Initially went to the Kingdom of Fife but things were bit flat. Then drove all the way to Skateraw but there the tide wasnt helping. In the end Aberlady looked nice and since the tide was all the way out decided to walk to the wrecks of the two mini-submarines that were used as target practice for RAF after 1946 This one is the one better preserved of the two.

At the car park I met fellow flickrite Mike Clark ( and we had a nice chat. Mike, Sly and myself set up our cameras around the wrecks hoping for a nice sunset but this never came really.

I think this shot shall be called "Drive" and accompanied by:

[] [] [] Thanks very much [] Thank you Archie; glad you like it [] [] Euxaristw poly :) [] Thanks Stevie; I ve been looking at it for long time and the camera and spirit level say it is straight. I think it is but this thin strip of land between the sea and the submarine "pond" makes it look otherwise. [] Thanks very much [] Thank you Gary [] Cheers. appreciate it [] You too Mike really nice to meet you; see you soon around. [] Thanks. Yes i was postponing a visit there but in the end i did it.
