Scotland in the twilight

Scotland is a dark place in winter. But a full moon or red skies at dawn and dusk give some reprieve from the drabness. Here the full moon... action lighting the region from the Mither tap to the North sea coast. On the horizon the lights of Aberdeen and the North sea.
South of Aberdeen is Dunnotar castle. Its shilouette contrasts the reflections on the North sea.
Here the full moon again.
Further down is St. Cyrus Nature reserve, one of my favourite viewpoints. A full moon and a lonely ship anchored on a calm night.
A bright night with views towards Montrose in the distance.
Same spot but another night.
Night gives way to dawn with red skies just before sunset. Near Broughty Ferry.
Even more red in the skies here at St. Cyrus.
In Dundee the best viewpoint is Dundee law here at dusk with a view towards Broughty Ferry. Only two of the high rise buildings are still standing and the oil rig is in the North sea now.
Later with a view towards the West. An opening in the sky allows some light to shine through.
Earlier in the evening swans on the Tay...
... and here Broughty Ferry castle a wee bit later with the moon above.
Finally the river Esk near the stones of solitude.
Dedicated to DL who loves the Scottish full moon than few others.
