Scotland's Enchanting Kingdom, the Kingdom of Fife is just that .. 'enchanting' , and whether you live here or have visited, it is renowned for being a place loved by Artists and Photographers.
The area is just so beautiful, and in my opinion is utterly captivating for anyone with a camera. Perhaps your first thoughts of Fife are the wonderful, famous golf courses? We have those of course, but did you know that you could take a lovely picture of a village cricket match which might make you think you are in Southern England; or sit by a quayside at one of our fishing villages such as
, listening to the gulls and watching the laden fishing boats come in , and think you are in a Cornish seaside village; or, as you drive along the lovely countryside you might be fooled to thinking in autumn ("fall") that you are in New England. Or, you might think you are in the Left Bank (Artist Quarter) of Paris when you visit our own Art Festival at
, and see the year-round gathering of artists and photographers taking advantage of the mild
and world-renowned 'light' of the East Neuk.

We even have a little stream running through the centre of the area called the River Eden, and I'm sure that someone out there knows an 'Adam and Eve' who live somewhere in this "Garden of Eden".
There are so many lovely places to see, and things to do that I'm sure you have some images of Fife Scotland tucked away in your camera. If it's not one of the things mentioned above, perhaps you have photos of some of the Historic Buildings ; for example if you walk around the delightful villages of Falkland or Culross, you could be in another era, forgetting the cares of the 21st century. You may have some fabulous photos of the famous Bridges with boats coming in such as the Zeebrugge Ferry, or some of the wonderful award-winning beaches such as St Andrews or watersports centres such as Elie; or some of the fabulous parks and gardens , or even some of the wonderful Visitor Attractions .
Fife also has some amazing wildlife such as the seals, cormorants, puffins, eagles, even the odd whale or dolphin or even the infamous
' seen in some areas around the Kingdom, and of course there are deer in the woods and
forests and glorious fauna including
heather and of course the thistle
Puffin on the Isle of May
You may also have some great photographs of a unique Highland Games , Kirkcaldy Links Market or Burntisland Fair, Auctermuchty Music Festival or one of the other local events which take place around the Kingdom throughout the year.
Throughout this site, I've placed a number of images of Fife Scotland, but you will realise quite quickly that I am not an expert photographer. So now I invite you to share your photos about Scotland's Enchanting Kingdom with the rest of the world to show how images of Fife Scotland equal anything that the world has to offer!
