Taken as the spring time sun was setting across the River Forth in the area of Kincardine, Scotland.

The River Forth is 29 miles long and is the major river draining the eastern part of the central belt of Scotland.

The Forth rises in Loch Ard in the Trossachs, a mountainous area some 19 miles west of Stirling. It flows roughly eastward, through Aberfoyle, joining with the Duchray Water and Kelty Water, and out over the flat expanse of the Flanders Moss. It is then joined by the River Teith (which itself drains Loch Venachar, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Katrine, and Loch Voil) and the River Allan, before meandering through the ancient city of Stirling. At Stirling the river widens and becomes tidal, and it is here that the last (seasonal) ford of the river exists. From Stirling, the Forth flows east over the Carse of Stirling and past the towns of Cambus (where it is joined by the river Devon), Alloa, Fallin and Airth. Upon reaching Kincardine the river begins to widen into an estuary, the Firth of Forth.

Welcome to my beautiful world….
Scotland has such beautiful scenery and I try to capture those wonderful scenes along my travels. You will very often find me on the moors or soaking up the atmosphere of one of the many Lochs Scotland has to offer.
I also have a love of flowers and have a selection of fine art florals in my portfolio. Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my world….
