Midweek Monochrome of Mossyard


Google photos has a happy habit of reminding me of what I was up to this day one year, two years, three years (and so on) ago. Today it pointed out that in 2020, just after the worst of Lockdown was over, we escaped briefly to Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland. And there we discovered Mossyard Bay.

Let’s take a virtual trip: there’s not a fairground ride, amusement arcade or kiss-me-quick hat in sight.  There’s not even a chippie.  Just us, the rocky shore, and the sea, advancing or retreating with the tide. Happy memories, translated into monochrome.

For Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome #106, and as suggested by Sarah, of Travel with Me fame. Bren herself takes us to the Nidd Gorge, my back yard when I lived in Harrogate: while Sarah, for her post, is in her favourite city, Paris.

  1. These work so well in monochrome. I really must do more B&W photography, it can be extremely effective. Mossyard Bay looks lovely and looked a little familiar so I looked it up and see that it is practically opposite a place we drove to one evening when we stayed in D&G. We were on the opposite side of the Big Water of Fleet at Carrick Beach. Equally stunning and equally remote.

      1. It was before we moved to Cornwall. We decided that it was too far a journey for our children (that worked out well… ) However, with the state of politics in this country, Scotland is looking very appealing.
