OBSCURED SUPERMOON – AGAIN!

At the beginning of December the moon was unusually close to the Earth and looked very large – when it could be seen for cloud. My best attempt at photoing it was early in the morning of  4th December.

PERTH CHARITY FIREWORKS 2017

This year’s fireworks were set off from a new location in the middle of the South Inch.  They really were rockets being launched, especially in the finale.

BOATING ON THE RIVER TAY

At the beginning of July we went on the first available commercial boat trip along the Tay from the Fergusson Pontoon to Willowgate. The power of the River was much more evident when on the water and we had some new views of the Friarton Bridge.

FEBRUARY FLOWERS AT BRACO CASTLE GARDENS

At the end of February I went to see the spring flowers in Braco Castle Gardens, participants in this year’s snowdrop festival.  The flowers were nice, as were the stylish bare trees, but a lively red squirrel stole the show!

SANTA DAY IN DUNKELD

Santa visited Dunkeld on 10th December on a wooden sledge pulled by reindeer. I wonder what they thought of the proceedings!

Fireworks night on the South Inch, Perth

There was a clear, cool night for the annual Perth and Strathearn Round Table firework display.  As ever it was spectacular, and the free hot chocolate was much appreciated in the bitter north wind.
