“Poetic, penetrating, and often heartbreaking, Chris Killip’s In Flagrante remains the most important photobook to document the devastating impact of deindustrialization on working-class communities in northern England in the 1970′s and 1980′s.” quoted from source

Good Morning from Scotland 

Periphery of Sunrise by David Langan
Via Flickr:
Another photo taken on beautiful Balmedie beach. This time I was on the beach witnessing a biblical sunrise. The colour, saturation and intensity from the rising sun was pretty spectacular. I really liked the long whisps of clouds picking up some of this colour against a cooler sky so set up this composition with the main part of the sunrise out of shot . Even though the bright and fiery part of the sky is way over to the right hand side i believe the curve of the water heading left is a good counter too this. Just for your info, the strange concrete blocks are the remnants of WW2 coastal defences The eagle eyed among you will spot where this stream exits into the sea, I would rather it featured a bit more prominently in the photo but you cant have everything!
