Review of 2015

Review of 2105 in Pictures

These are not necessarily the best pictures that I took during the year but just some that interested me when I looked back through the files.  I have arranged them by month and tried to stick to just one a month (but failed).  Most of them have already appeared on the daily blog.


We often get visited by the sparrowhawk.



I took a visit to the Eskrigg nature reserve near Lockerbie.  I have been back since.

I have put three in from this month as I couldn’t chose just one from them.

This tiny female hazel flower was taken with my macro lens.

This tiny child was nearly a year old.


And this is a sequence from the solar eclipse seen from our garden.

After a very mild winter, we got a late fall of snow.



A quick glimpse of a nuthatch before it disappeared.



We had a splendid display of young starlings being very demanding during this month.  I had too many pictures of them to choose from but ended up picking this one.

We didn’t have many excursions during the year but we really enjoyed a visit to the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies.  These are the Kelpies.  They are absolutely huge.



I have put in two  pictures for August. The first one shows the wonderfully named River Whampool.  Its cycling significance is that I took at nearly the furthest extent of my only 100 mile pedal of the year.  As you can see, it was a lovely day.  The River Whampool runs its course on the English side of the Solway Firth.


The second picture is just one of the hundreds of pictures which I took of roses in the garden.  This is Crown Princess Margareta

Back to cycling again but this shows slightly quicker pedallers than me.  We went to see the Tour Of Britain cyclists climbing up the hill out of Canonbie.

We finally got some consistent good weather in October and that brought butterflies into the garden….

…and let me get out in to some hillier country on the bike.  Cycling heaven.



A horribly wet month but warm enough to let plenty of fungus flourish.



The rain got worse and the river rose alarmingly.

And that’s it.

A handful of pictures to represent the thousands that loyal readers have ploughed through during the year.  Thank you for your patience.
