With photowalks, you take the weather you get. And in Scotland, in midwinter, that often means dreich. We got to Barns Ness for one o’clock, which gave us two and a half hours of daylight. The weather forecast was ideal – ‘sunshine and clouds’.

Sadly, it wasn’t to be. When we arrived at Barns Ness, there was 90% cloud cover. When we arrived at Skateraw, there was still 90% cloud cover. While we followed the unpromising concrete walkway round Torness Nuclear Power Station, it was threatening rain. When we arrived at Thorntonloch, the cloud cover had improved to 80%, but it was one of those days when it never got properly light. And now it was getting dark.
Oh well. I guess that’s what black and white conversions were made for.
