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”

A small step

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony and the kingdom of everlasting sunshine, East Wemyss.  If you look closely, you might see a seal on the rock in the foreground and perhaps a cormorant too. After our recent sunny spell, we went back to rather grey and gloomy today, but the silver liningContinue reading “A small step”

Seeing the light

Today’s guest picture comes from a new contributor, Paul.  Like myself, he is a cyclist and obviously a keen photographer.  He is not absolutely sure but he thinks that this delightful shot was taken at Blea Tarn in the Lake District. We had another cold and sunny day today, but it was even colder thanContinue reading “Seeing the light”

A second failure at go fish

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who was spotted by a deer on one of his walks. It was another grey day today but although it promised to rain for quite a lot of the day, we got nothing worse than a few spots every now and again. I went off to theContinue reading “A second failure at go fish”

Unstressed

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother.  He took while he was waiting for a few stragglers to catch up at the end of a recent group walk.  As they had been going for nine miles, I am not surprised that there was a bit of straggling. It will be a bitContinue reading “Unstressed”

A start and stop day

Today’s guest picture is another from Mike and Alison’s New Zealand adventure.  Mike thought correctly that it might warm me up.  He tells me that it shows Mapua with Rabbit Island in the background. At the other end of the earth from Mapua, we had a suitably dark and grey occasion here as we approachContinue reading “A start and stop day”

A dilemma

Today’s guest picture’s subject was spotted in the window of what she called a ‘posh shop’ in Mayfair by my sister Susan.  It must be quite posh indeed if it is selling this. We woke to another day of undiluted blue sky.  There was an additional factor though.  This was the view of the greenContinue reading “A dilemma”

Less sun, more light

Today’s guest picture shows the River Derwent in Derby in full flow after the visit of Imogen.  It was taken by my brother who lives in Derby. We had a day without any hint of sunshine today but curiously, it was much brighter for the most part than yesterday had been.  This was not justContinue reading “Less sun, more light”

Staying at home

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother-in-law Mike and shows his granddaughter Lara putting in the last pieces of an enormous jigsaw puzzle. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Edinburgh to see our granddaughter Matilda today but I stayed at home.  As soon as she had left to catch the train at Lockerbie,Continue reading “Staying at home”

A step back

Today’s guest picture, which comes from my Newcastle correspondent, shows her two children sitting on top of an old coal mine at Weetslade.  She tells me that you can enjoy nature here while watching planes landing and taking off and trains speeding by at the same time.  Paradise. After yesterday’s optimism, I was back toContinue reading “A step back”
