Nothing but singing

Today’s guest picture comes from  my Manitoba correspondent, Mary Jo.  I think she must have moved on from Australia to New Zealand because today’s picture shows the Rakaia Gorge, which is in the South Island.  It was raining when she took the picture. Today was a busy day but it will give rise to aContinue reading “Nothing but singing”

Rain later

Today’s guest picture is another from our neighbour Liz’s walk with Riley,  As well as the waterfall, she saw some very early primroses, sheltering beside the stream. We saw the return of grey and windy weather today which was a disappointment after our dry week, but at least the forecast rain didn’t arrive until afterContinue reading “Rain later”

Another rest (and a change)

Today’s guest picture once again arises from my brother Andrew taking his son on vigorous hill walks to help Nick prepare for a trek in Nepal.  Ignoring Storm Jorge’s strong winds, they battled up to the top of Bunster Hill and enjoyed this splendid view of the junction of the Rivers Dove and Manifold (andContinue reading “Another rest (and a change)”

Goodbye

Today’s guest picture is another from camera club member Simon.  He took a walk along the old railway line to Longtown and managed to find himself under three bridges at the same time, the main road, the old railway and a footbridge. The weather, which likes to have its little joke, decided that a dayContinue reading “Goodbye”

The tenors get a tune

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Amsterdam trip.  He took a tour of the canals in the city while he was there and saw the the Muziektheater, which is called now The National Opera and Ballet. We are beginning to have only a distant memory of the sun and it was no surprise toContinue reading “The tenors get a tune”

Parenting pays off

Today’s guest picture comes from camera club member Simon.  He lives in Canonbie and took a walk to visit the old railway bridge over the Esk below the village.  He sent me this picture to add to my bridge collection. I followed doctor’s instructions to have a quiet day in again today, and the painContinue reading “Parenting pays off”

A change in the weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Ada who was walking along the road to Newcastelton when she saw a very unusual bird at rest on the Langholm moor.  It was there as part of the works on maintaining our pylons. Our run of grey but dry days under a ridge of high pressure cameContinue reading “A change in the weather”

Going, going, gone

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who noticed these sculptures of  full stop on a recent visit to the South Bank of the Thames. Our day looked like this when I got up… …but it had become rather cloudy by the time that we got to church…. …and it had disappeared entirely byContinue reading “Going, going, gone”

On song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She was impressed by Mary Sibande’s exhibition ‘I Came Apart at the Seams’ on a visit to Somerset House.  If this picture is anything to go by, I can see why she liked it. We had another grey and drizzly morning here and I had to putContinue reading “On song”

A night out

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss, the land of eternal sunshine. It is not the sharpest picture that he has ever taken, but I thought that it was unusual enough to fill the guest spot. We had a cool but sunny day here. The temperature was near enough toContinue reading “A night out”
