This is the River Almond near Huntingtower just outside Perth.
It's the river I grew up with either picnicking as a family further upstream, jumping and swimming in it here with friends or just going for a walk 'round the river' as I called it throughout my teen years. I'd spend endless hours here just sitting and thinking or learning songs.
My younger brother still lives near here so we went for a walk 'round the river' when we were visiting at the weekend.
My children really enjoyed hearing my stories about adventures I had round here as a girl and we spent ages skimming stones and just enjoying the peace and quiet.
I couldn't resist a few close up shots of little details I found interesting.
First hints of Autumn
There's nothing spectacular about this walk but it holds a lot of memories for me and it was nice to take my children back to somewhere I'd spent so much time. My Grandparents lived on the other side of the river so there are a lot of family memories in this area.
Spotted this wee cutie well camouflaged in the wheat field.
I'm busy working on commission pieces at the moment, then it will be all go for up coming events.

My brother took these two photos on one of his trips to the highlands. Impressive horns aren't they! And doesn't this coo's coat match the russet landscape below.
I've added a little snap shot of my on line shop below which can be clicked on should you require any more info on pieces available.
