A flash in the dark
"Something strange happened yesterday. The clouds, which are normally so low that the seagulls around here prefer to walk along the pavements, broke up to reveal a strange blue sky high up, causing a little alarm among the natives.
I didn't get out during the day for any photos but I decided to head for Portencross Castle in the evening for the glorious sunset. Being a man of poor timing though, it was nearly dark by the time I got there. So I made several long exposures and ran about the beach (in the pitch black, for there is no light) and set off my flash gun at various points. Setting of a flash in the pitch black doesn't half blind you though."
