There are very few man made objects in my images. Sometimes the lighthouse and, also to be seen in this image, the old lighting tower on the skerries make an appearance but these tank traps, remnants from the war, are a well known part of our local history and landscape and so here they are. Still guarding after all those years.

Taken from the shoreline looking to the Northwest from Lossiemouth in Moray Scotland.
