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 familiar pattern

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my brother Andrew.  He is a great walker and recently walked with his walking group through a wood.  The substantial size of the trees can be gauged by noting the size of the walkers who can just be seen at the bottom of the frame. I hadContinue reading “A familiar pattern”

Better than expected

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s visit to Orviedo while he is in Spain.  It shows the  800 AD church of St Julian, built in the Byzanto-romano style, which the ruling Visigoths of Asturia liked. The advance forecast has been rather gloomy about the weather this week, but we got a stay ofContinue reading “Better than expected”

Hidden delight

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is visiting the Glasgow area and found himself at the start of the West Highland way in Milngavie.  He is not going to walk it though as it is 96 miles long. I have always believed that the autumn equinox came on the 21st of SeptemberContinue reading “Hidden delight”

Better

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to the Haynes International Motor Museum.  This is a 1949 Jaguar 3.5 litre saloon and very nice too.  They keep the exhibits very well polished. The day started much as yesterday had finished, windy and grey. I wisely spent so much time over breakfast that by theContinue reading “Better”

Cheesed off

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother Andrew’s Heart Walking Group’s outings.  They found themselves near Robin Hood’s Stride, a spectacular tor of gritstone rocks perched on a ridge in the Peak District.  My brother thought that he might nip up to the top of it but was thwarted by its steepness andContinue reading “Cheesed off”

Chipping in

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is on a break in Northumberland, where he took this picture of a bridge over the River Breamish. It was a grey and faintly drizzly day here today so it was good to have a spot of indoor brightness supplied by the  charming flowers that SueContinue reading “Chipping in”

I felt no pain

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  On a recent tour, he stopped at Tewkesbury and took a picture of the bridge there. Yesterday’s heavy work on the lawn was an experiment in ‘kill or cure’ and when I woke up this morning, I was very happy to find that the balance had tippedContinue reading “I felt no pain”

Matilda in fairyland

Today’s guest picture was taken by my flute pupil Luke’s father, Alan.  He has been forced to go to Dubrovnik on work related business and this is the view from his hotel window.  Poor chap. I realised that I had inexcusably omitted a great moment from yesterday’s activities in my daily account so here itContinue reading “Matilda in fairyland”

Just a song at twilight

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia, who like Dr Foster went to Gloucester but, unlike him,  found that the weather was fine.  She enjoyed a singing day in this lovely building. Our fine weather continued and with the breeze still coming from the south, we had an even warmer day than yesterday. Continue reading “Just a song at twilight”
