Harbour No.1 At Dunbar.

By Tooma
The 1st of three harbours in the town; this is the outermost one. If you look through the entrance and to the right of the ancient castle remains, you can see Law Hill in North Berwick.

This east coast, once very busy fishing town, has a huge amount of history attached to it, and I really would like to travel back to spend more time exploring and learning about it one day.

Dunbar is where the dark amber delicious Belhaven Beers are produced; the brewery was founded in 1719.

From memory the rocks at the harbour entrance has many bird nests. A nice tranquil scene and well composed and presented.

Tom, I think you have an intuitive flair for harbours and boats as well as for putting the viewer in a position that allows us to take in as much as possible of the scene. SmileSmileSmile

Thanks for the link, Roy. I am sure there is a lot more to see and shoot in Dunbar, a town with an amazing history right enough. At the time of this pic we had started in North Berwick and drove through to St Abbs, which is not so readily photogenic as Dunbar, but a lovely place to be. There is a plaque at the harbour which is where I first read and realised something of Dunbar's story.
My first real camera was a Zenith E too, and I have a set of 5 pics up on a wall of big cats at Edinburgh Zoo, taken back in the mid 70s. I used it with a 2x converter and a 135mm. Loved it, after using my Dad's Zeiss Kohn box camera and an Instamatic, lol. Smile

An excellent image of this photogenic harbour, Tom.
I would have loved to have seen it in its busy heyday.
