Out in the Forth

 Three oil platforms out in the Forth at sunset.
One of the platforms brightly lit.
 The platforms viewed from Keil's Den
The platforms lit by the afternoon sun shining through the clouds. Perhaps they are parked because of the downturn in the oil industry, although this afternoon  I noticed that one of them had gone.

A Gulp of Cormorants

There are quite often a few cormorants sitting on the rocks opposite Lower largo Pier, but yesterday there were a lot more than usual. I looked up the collective noun for cormorants and found two - a flight (but these weren't in flight) and a gulp which I rather liked..
Some of the cormorants were in the water suddenly diving out of sight.
At the other end of the rocky outcrop one cormorant spreading its wings also some gulls and oystercatchers.

Remembrance Day

At the end of August this year, poppies at the edge of a field of potatoes in Lower Largo.

Sharing a Rock

Last week on one day there were two seals sharing this low level rock just off Lundin Links; the next day there were five. They were balancing on the rock, in typical banana shape pose. First time that I've seen them at this spot; more usually on the rocks opposite the first fairway of Lundin Golf Course, but these were on the rocks opposite the swings on the Massney Braes.

Season of Mists.....

The last few days a  misty shroud has fallen over Largo producing some atmospheric views. Down at the pier can just see the viaduct and out to sea just unremitting greyness.
In the Serpentine Walk the path disappears into the mist.

 Largo Law with its misty cap on.
Spooky trees.
