Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”

Frozen out and in

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was out and about on a very sunny day before the recent snow in London. She visited St Catherine’s Dock at just the right moment We had our coldest morning yet here today at -11°C/-12°F. I got out as far as the bird feeders in theContinue reading “Frozen out and in”

Much better than expected

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. Like us they had sunshine and clouds there today. Edinburgh seems to be under the cloud. Once again there had been weather warnings for strong winds and heavy rain, and once again we woke to rain, but it was not very heavy and thereContinue reading “Much better than expected”

An improving day

As we had a very wet and grey morning here, I am pleased to have an East Wemyss dawn as the guest picture of the day by way of a contrast. Tony was up early again. It was so wet here in the morning that Dropscone came round in his car for coffee instead ofContinue reading “An improving day”

Diverted by cows

Today’s scenic guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Although it looks peaceful enough, he tells me that the wind was blowing so strongly that he literally had to hold on to his hat as he crossed the stream. We had quite a windy day here too, and it was grey and occasionally rainy. IContinue reading “Diverted by cows”

Surprise cows

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce He was in North Berwick on the east coast today as the sun set. There was no sign of sun here today, and we woke to grey and wet weather. I spent some of the morning walking up to the town under my umbrella to do someContinue reading “Surprise cows”

Blown down and blown up

Today’s guest picture is another from Bruce’s visit to Sheffield. This time he saw a very helpful signpost. We did have some more sunshine here today, but as forecast, it came with quite a lot of wind. Just after breakfast, a fierce gust blew a compost bin over, and we had to go and hideContinue reading “Blown down and blown up”

A more gentle stroll

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline in Southsea. She came across a very fine floral hedge on her outing today. We enjoyed another blue sky day here, but once again it was chilly. It was below freezing when we got up, and though it did rise to a heady five degrees around noon,Continue reading “A more gentle stroll”

A stroll with Mrs Tootlepedal

Today’s guest picture comes from my Manitoba correspondent, Mary Jo. At first sight it might look like a row of gallows along the roadside, but she tells me that they are used to take electrical connections over the sidewalks. The electricity is used to heat up oil or cylinder blocks before trying to start carsContinue reading “A stroll with Mrs Tootlepedal”

Far too many fallen trees

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair in Edinburgh. He woke to find a sprinkling of snow on his balcony. This was a coincidence because we woke to snow here too . . . . . . and we had to walk very carefully to church to sing in the church choir. Although itContinue reading “Far too many fallen trees”
