The story behind the image

We found the Scottish coast between Fraserburgh and Elgin to be extremely beautiful. You’ll have beaches, towns, cliffs, secluded villages, lighthouses, golf courses. Countless photo stops slowed us down, so it took us almost a day to get from Rattray Head to Elgin, a distance of just 70 miles.

This is the town of Macduff, located on the eastern side of the River Deveron. Just hopping over the river you’ll get to Banff and its long beach. From the Bridge Road I captured the stunning Macduff skyline which is dominated by the Macduff Parish Church. Next to the church you will find the Cross of Macduff, a historical high cross.
