Appin Show 2011

Wow! It doesnt seem a year since the last Appin agricultural show.  This year again the weather was stunning providing light and sun to the glorious backdrop of Morven and Castle Stalker.  I love this event as it provides a rich seam for taking photographs and there are some great local characters with whom it's nice to catch up and get the craic.  This year I had a good chat with Jack Scorgie for whom I dragged many a Stag of the hill when a young lad.  The pictures speak for themselves and tell the story of a strong vibrant local community pulling together with its roots tapped well into it's past, looking to the future, and with a bond to the land continuing into the next generation.
