Sunsets, etc

Photos I have taken locally during the evening this week, mostly sunsets with a couple of others.

Hundreds of crows heading to their nearby roost for the night, just before darkness fell. The noise was incredible.
The moon. I took this with no tripod and guessed the settings and it came out perfectly first time!

Loch Leven

I popped down to nearby Loch Leven yesterday afternoon to watch the wildfowl on the loch and take some photos.

Black Headed Gulls, Loch Leven

I photographed this group of Black Headed Gulls at Loch Leven yesterday afternoon. They were taking off from the water and diving back down into the Loch, bathing themselves. Fascinating to watch.

Perthshire Scenes

Views from the hillside near Meall a Charra, Perthshire.

Priest's Stone, thought to date back to the 7th Century. The stone was moved to its current location on the Clunie Power Station road when the River Tummel was flooded.
