A Broughty Ferry Moonrise

A late evening walk along Broughty Ferry beach resulted in this photograph of the full moon rising above the Tay Estuary.

The Tay Rail Bridge, Winter 2012

A beautiful sunset, I remember this day.

We All Walk the Long Road

A man walks along the riverside in Dundee during sunset with the Tay Rail bridge in the distance.

The Rail Bridge

The Tay Bridge (sometimes unofficially the Tay Rail Bridge) is a railway bridge approximately two and a quarter miles (three and a half kilometres) long that spans the Firth of Tay in Scotland, between the city of Dundee and the suburb of Wormit in Fife.

As with the Forth Bridge, the Tay Bridge has also been called the Tay Rail Bridge since the construction of a road bridge over the firth, the Tay Road Bridge. The rail bridge replaced an early train ferry.

“Tay Bridge” was also the codename for the funeral plans for Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.

This photograph was captured from the Wormit end of the bridge. On a clear day when the tide is out you can see the foundations of the original bridge which collapsed in 1879.

Kinnoull Hill

Ever since I was a child, sitting in the car as my family drove past this location many a time, I’ve always wanted to get to the top of this hill just on the outskirts of Perth.

Today I finally got around to doing it. Here is the view from the top looking South East.
