Isle of Bute Port Bannatyne
Isle of Bute
Port Bannatyne lies 2.5miles north of Rothesay on the east coast of the Isle of Bute. This is a tranquil coastal village which has small marina. The wooden pier lies derelict from the Victorian age, when the Isle of Bute was a very much a bustling holiday destination. The Isle of Bute is on the west coast of Scotland, in the Firth of Clyde, and North of the isle of Arran.
I wanted to capture its dereliction, and its structure against the magnificent scenery of the mountains of Argyll and the Cowal Peninsular. These long exposures were taken on a very much overcast early morning, using a Lee Big Stopper. I took several exposure times and used images with the best exposure without blowing the highlights too much, or too much black clipping.
Black and white conversions have worked well with the structure creating a minimalistic feel with depth and perspective.
