Firth of Forth, Winter's Day 03

Uploader's Comments

A gas tanker moored at the industrial berths on the Firth of Forth, just across from Cramond. In the foreground you can see the "dragon's teeth", which are sea defences from the world wars. They run along the causeway (submerged during high tide) linking the mainland to Cramond island and were designed to prevent a sneaky submarine creeping upriver towards the Rosyth Naval Dockyards. The island itself still has a number of old world war gun emplacements dotted around it.
