My dad and I drove to Prestongrange Heritage Museum, only to find it closed and looking derelict. We passed a sign saying it was open from 11:30am but it didn’t look like it had been open for quite some time, so we left. We drove further up the road, past Seton Sands, and decided to stop at the beach. I had not taken my tripod as we were going to a museum, but I could have done with it on the beach for longer shutter speed shots. I took some which fit the criteria of predominantly light tones.
After this we went to Dirleton Castle & Gardens. Both were interesting but presented challenges with the light. I think possibly it was the wrong time of day to get the best from the gardens, and the very low lighting inside the castle ruins led to very dark interiors, and underexposure in areas where light was allowed in, such as doorways, windows, and holes in the wall.
We also went to Rosslyn Chapel on the way home, with the intention of taking some shots of the exterior of the building. However, this would have cost £9 each, with the high chance that we wouldn’t be allowed to take photos inside. So we walked down to the little graveyard behind the chapel itself, where there were a couple of interesting monuments.
