Floating

Upside down, just for fun!!

 

Doing not a lot but reading my manual trying to get to grips with a few settings, newly discovered settings so this one is just for fun!

 

This is a paved path, exposed at low tide, which allows easy access to Cramond Island (Scottish Gaelic Eilean Chathair Amain) is one of several islands that lie in the Firth of Forth in eastern Scotland, near Edinburgh. As its name implies, it lies off Cramond. It is 1⁄3 miles (0.54 km) long and covers 7.7 hectares (19 acres).

This path runs at the foot of a row of concrete pylons on one side of the causeway which were constructed as a submarine defence boom and are one of the most striking sights in the area. At high tide the island is cut off from the mainland, with the path several feet below sea level! This ptoto only shows a minimal part of the walkway.

(Strictly speaking it is not a true island at all, but a tidal island being connected to the mainland at low tide. . It lies about a mile from the shore, and visitors should take care to leave sufficient time to walk back to the mainland. The speed with which the water rises can catch people unawares, leaving them stranded. The island forms part of the estuary of the River Almond whose mouth is near the landward end of the crossing. It is a popular recreation area.
