What a Fab photo!! I think I'm one the few locals who love to see the massive rigs berthed up. I remember the first year they were all lined up along the Firth at Christmas (like giant Christmas trees) and all their horns blasting at Midnight on Hogmanay! PS - where on earth was the photographer when he took this?

Amazing!! It just puts such a different perpective on the way we normally see them from the ground. Well Done.
