Lomur Ship at Newburgh North Fife
Cargo ship Lomur chugging by Newburgh North Fife on the ebb tide having left Perth Docks on the turn. Its last port of call was Reykjavik, its cargo delivered from there. On the waterfront were two other photographers clicking away, obviously ship spotters, I know of plane spotters, bird spotters too, today I joined their ranks.
