Another shot from my charity shop find Seagull 4A twin-lens reflex camera.

Crail is a delightful harbour town on the Fife coast, famous for its fresh shellfish and its annual food festival.

It was very chilly and rather breezy the day I was there, with only a handful of (well wrapped up) tourists braving the elements…

Culross has one of the oldest harbours in Scotland and was a busy port in the 16th and 17th centuries trading coal and salt with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Denmark.

Since the 1930s the National Trust for Scotland have been working on preserving and restoring its many unique historical buildings.

The pier was neglected for many years but thanks to the efforts of determined locals its restoration is now complete.

The Hopper Dredger UKD Orca can also be seen in the distance.

The Sheringham Lifeboat Museum, seen here on a glorious September afternoon. The museum houses the Henry Ramey Upcher, the second private lifeboat (replacing the Augusta) to be stationed in Sheringham. Launched on 4 September 1894 she stayed on station for 41 years until she was slowly retired from duty and by 1935 the RNLI Liverpool-class vessel J C Madge had replaced her on rescue work.
