North Berwick West Beach Photos

East Lothian, Scotland

Festive Rig

Uploader's Comments

As night fell on North Berwick we saw something unusual from the beach - over on the Fife side of the Firth of Forth a large oil rig was moored. A common site, you can often see some there near the shipyards around Burntisland, there for repair or to be dismantled. However this one stood out in the gathering gloom, brightly lit - a look through the zoom showed they had decorated it for Christmas!!

Apologies for the roughness of the shot, zoom after nightfall with no tripod.
