Kinoull Sunset

Perth, Perthshire, Scotland

Kinoull Hill sits just outside of Perth, overlooking the River Tay as it meanders down to the North Sea. The structure on the cliff edge is a folly and was built as a ruin by the 9th Earl of Kinoull in the 18th century. It was meant to resemble the castles on the Rhine in Germany. I had to work quickly as the light from the setting sun was already off the low lying land and was creeping up the cliff face. With a bit of forward planning, I knew that the moon would be in the right place at this time. Photo © copyright by Graham Chalmers.
