Robert Melville Photographs. What a delight to come across Robert's exhibition of truly wonderful photos. Taken locally and depicting the rich images found usually very early in the morning, of storms, sun rises over Anstruther and Pittenweem, wildlife included. Truly worth a visit, displaying a sensitivity and appreciation of what is. The sort image I would be really happy to have taken myself. Robert is outside the main event, on the fringe but can be found at, 15 Abbey Road, Pittenweem, KY10 2NB.

Great post. Now I have something to refer people to when I'm trying to describe Angie's stunning paintings from the festival! Lots of other great pictures too.
