My roots are in the east of Scotland. My paternal grandparents were from Fife and my maternal grandparents settled in East Lothian. I spent many summer holidays in both places, enjoying the coastlines at Crail and Anstruther in Fife, and spending lovely long days at the beach at Seacliff in East Lothian. Revisiting these places in my adulthood and examining them through a lens was like going to a new country. I hadn't realised the expansive skies and intricate shorelines were so beautiful.
