I headed for Perth and veered off on the Rhynd road - suddenly spotted a field of Sunflowers, sadly a bit past their best and not as symmetrically planted as I might like - but sufficiently unusual (in my experience) to warrant a few shots.
I have tried growing Sunflowers to get a really nice close up of the seed patterns, but not had any success this year, so this was a good consolation prize for me.
Then I snapped the Tower on Kinnoul hill and also spotted an old phone box that I had not noticed before.
I stopped just above the motorway bridge to take some shots of Perth with the distant mountains in the background.
I ended up in Perth just below the railway bridge and met another chap with a camera he was also called Ian and had come from Helensburgh to photograph a new type of train, with "two sixty-eights" which apparently is a the newest deisel engines. I went back to the car to get a different lens and nearly missed it, but got one blurry shot. I had a nice chat with Ian, then it was Sunset so I headed up the Dundee road to catch some sunsets over the skyline of Perth.
One of the highlights of my day was discovering a walnut tree just starting to drop nuts. I was dead chuffed with that as, again, they are sufficiently unusual to pique my interest.
Sadly I think they were too far gone to pickle, which I am very keen to try out, but maybe next year now I know where it is. It is a lousy shot as by then it was getting quite dark, but I left it in anyway.
A miscellany of shots I don't particularly rate, but I enjoyed my little outing.
