A breath of fresh air - and if these were taken with the current iPhone...well, you're all set, Heather!
Love seeing that your dogs are along with you - they're so photogenic!
My favorite, I think, is the Free Beach.
Keep 'em coming!

One of the problems with being the vet on call is that it is so unpredictable. Friday night I finally got home and off to sleep at 2am. At 5.30am I was called out again, a house call to a wee dog who sadly was losing his battle with heart disease. In a rare moment of clarity I realised that this would present me with an opportunity to take some photos in the early morning when things were quiet. I grabbed the camera bag (ever primed and ready) and made my way to the middle of Fife. The sun had very kindly deigned to show it's face after hiding for oh so long. After my call was finished I found a handy layby and took a few shots before dragging my sorry behind into the office where I crashed out for an hour before starting work again.

Lovely colours, really. Especially after longer periods of rain. Same here in Germany. Summer 2012 - I was in it - all 4 days!

There was a boat moored off Wormit on the River Tay which was where they sent that bad boys, a sort of juvenile detention unit where they were treated as if they were in the Navy (except for the rum). It was called the Mars. This is now on the pier

We get some lovely sunsets here. This was last night's on the Tay.

There are two bridges over the Tay at Dundee - the road and the rail bridges. This is the railway bridge. It is the second one to be built. The stumps to the right are the remains of the first one. It didn't last very long. The building of it was a calamity fraught with problems. Everybody was very proud of it when it was completed. Then one night there was a terrible storm which blew down the middle section, called the "High Girders". The steam train coming over from Fife was unaware of the problem and carried on over the bridge, plunging into the river. It is known as the Tay Railway Bridge Disaster and many lives were lost. The engineer who designed the bridge committed suicide shortly after. The disaster is most famous though for the poem written about it by the worlds worst poet, William McGonagall. Look him up, he's really awful.

Thanks for the pretty shots and the interesting background stories! I think I won't spend my precious sleeping time awake and reading the world's worst poet's poems, but I might just find myself in those barley fields in my dreams...

Heather, thanks for reminding me of McGonagall. If I recall correctly:
