I received five rolls of film back from the lab today, this image is from a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus shot in a charity shop find Seagull 4A twin-lens reflex camera.

Fife Ness is a headland that forms the most easterly point in Fife, Scotland and consists mainly of a windswept golf course and a light house.

The circular marks in the rocks in the foreground are the remains of a template for a lighthouse that was started in 1813 by the engineer Robert Stevenson. The cut stones for the tower were checked against these marks to ensure they would fit perfectly before being shipped out to the offshore North Carr Reef. Construction ended in 1818 when the almost complete lighthouse was destroyed in a winter storm.
