DescriptionDigitally altered image of Fidra Island. Fidra is located near the small town of Yellowcraigs. Fidra is a small rocky island just off the coast of East Lothian (East of Edinburgh, Scotland). Fidra Island is said to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's book 'Treasure Island.' The tower is 17 metres high and the night characteristic is 4 white every 30 seconds. The beacon has a range of 24 nautical miles. The station was engineered by David and Thomas Stevenson. It began operation in 1885 and was automated in 1970. This shot was taken from the beach at North Berwick.
Ian Jeffrey, Tring Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement I was Born in Scotland now living in the Chilterns - Hertfordshire. I started photography in the good old days of film and darkroom technology about 30 years ago, but have now moved on to the new digital age of photography.
As a photographer, I realise that all art is subjective and therefore I don’t expect for one single moment that everyone who browses through my images will feel the same way about them as I do. Even so, I hope that you enjoy the small collection of images that I have put together on this website, and I thank you for your support and encouragement.
Photography & Image Manipulation is something I could never get bored with.
I hope you enjoy my images.
Mail me if you would like to see any of my images converted to B/W, Sepia or Toned, I will then upload the relevant converted image or images that you have requested.
