This is going to be the first in a wee set on Dysart a small village next to Kirkcaldy. It's really been swallowed up but don't let a Dysartian hear you saying that ! Dysart has done well over the years through manufacture of salt , weaving, fishing mining but like any other place it has fallen on hard times both now and in the past. The story of mining in the town is the most contentious round these parts. This art installation is called Sea Beams and the solid oak beams are meant to depict the different shades seen in the Firth of Forth (just behind) and thus make the connection tween land and sea.

All about vertical lines, but with the horizon to balance them. Like this a lot. My instinct if photographing this would be to look for asquare composition, but I think it benefits from that empty space on the right.

Rod yaer makin mae hame seek man. Mind Dysart well especially the old fishin village, but also "The Dubby" (Francis Colliery then Police HQ) and the woods o The Wemyss estate. Sorry Rod reminiscing must be a birthday thing.

Liked this image as B+W and now with the high Key colour its working really well. Lets have the next in the series.

I think you have done a grand job here Rod,the sky is great the beams are where they should be, would it be even better if a person walking through the image to give the artwork scale? or am I talking a load of C..... just a thought,it is still a good un!!!!!!
