Last summer I was down at Seafield Castle beach, just to the south of Kirkcaldy, doing a bit of ‘geologising’, ie looking at the various beds of rock to work out the sedimentary sequences. When I started, it was a beautiful summers day, but little known to me, as I was busy peering at sandstones, mudstones and limestones, a storm was approaching. It was only when the exposure time on my camera suddenly started to increase, that I looked up and saw this amazing view.
About 2 minutes later, after a desperate scramble across the rocks, the view had changed to this
I didn’t dare stop again to take any more photos, and just made it back to the coast path to hide under a low bush in a desperate attempt to keep my camera dry, before the heavens opened. Thankfully, the heavy rain only lasted for about ten minutes and the camera was fine – the sedimentological notes however, didn’t fair so well 😦
