Waterfall on the Balmenoch Burn The burn is in spate after the recent heavy rains and the waterfall is unusually dramatic. The Balmenoch Burn drains into the River Earn.
Sunset near Comrie Just before 4pm and the sun has already set behind the distant hills. A stand of leafless birches are silhouetted against the darkening sky. Winter has arrived.
|Title||Lednock Dam buttresses The view here is straight upwards between two of the massive concrete buttresses on the downstream side. The crest of the dam is around 100 feet above the photographer. This dam is one of two Diamond-headed buttress dams in Scotland. Allowance was made in its design for the proximity of the Highland Boundary Fault, which produces occasional minor 'earthquakes'.
