On a very rare snowy day in St Andrews, I took a quick walk out to the Cathedral to catch the scene before it all melted. The ruins of the cathedral usually look pretty depressing against the often-grey skies but the snow brightened up the scene remarkably, changing the whole tone for the better.
It was a blustery and bitterly cold day in St Andrews as I walked near the West Sands beach by the North Sea to find some good shooting opportunities. The breakers were pretty big, some even surging up over the railing where I was standing and getting a few drops on my coat. Sometimes one forgets the power of the elements. I made the photo kind of “noir” to encapsulate the mysterious power of the wind and waves.
