Hey, ho, the wind and the rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon who found a fine flower for me to enjoy. The forecasters had predicted rain overnight and all through the day, and unfortunately they got it quite right. I had a very unsettled night with the rain beating down and my legs complaining about the milesContinue reading “Hey, ho, the wind and the rain”

More going round in circles

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend and former colleague, Marjorie.  She came upon these stunning fungi on a walk a few days ago. It was a dry but grey morning and the forecast was not too bad for the rest of the day so my mind turned to cycling. Before I set off, IContinue reading “More going round in circles”

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”

Today’s guest picture comes from Andy Little, one of our camera club members.  He very kindly sent me this picture of an unusual bird which he saw when visiting New Lanark. I had a steadily busy but not frantic day today.  Encouraged by Mrs Tootlepedal, I got up reasonably early and went out for aContinue reading “Good shots”

Gosh darn it

Today’s guest picture comes from Bruce’s recent trip south and shows a public sculpture in Sheffield.  The sculpture is called ‘Double Helix’.   I like the sculpture but don’t know how it got its name as it looks more like a contorted screw eye than a double helix. Our slightly warmer weather continued today but soContinue reading “Gosh darn it”

Seeing the way ahead

Today’s guest picture is a pair of regal pelicans in a royal park in London.  My sister Mary enjoyed their company. After yesterday’s grand tour, I had a gentle morning which was enhanced by a couple of scones and the presence of Dropscone himself at coffee time.  He has been away acting as an officialContinue reading “Seeing the way ahead”
