The Fyrish Monument

Today I finally managed to take a wee jaunt up to the Fyrish Monument, it seem about time as I’ve been watching the Fyrish every time I drive past on the A9 and I’ve driven past at least twice a day on average! It’s an easy but steep climb up a straightforward woodland path that opens up to great views and with today’s changing weather I was hoping for some dramatic skies to photograph , while the weather didn’t let me down I was unsure how to spin new light on much photographed/painted monuments from 1782 but I will leave it up to you to judge my photos below!

As much as I enjoyed the monument I was quickly drawn to a small pond/bog at the summit by the loud buzzing of wings and I was not disappointed to find a large brown/yellow dragonfly laying eggs in the water 😀

If anyone can identify the dragonfly please let me know and as always I would love to hear any comments and questions from you.
