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!”

Home alone

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He was on holiday yesterday and was able to wait until the sun had come up before taking his dogs out for a walk in the woods. After a very welcome sunny day here yesterday, there was no chance of seeing the sun atContinue reading “Home alone”

Blown up (and down)

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. I inquired how the weather was in East Wemyss today so he sent me this delightfully impressionistic shot. We had a dry and sunny day here today, but it had dropped slightly below freezing overnight and it never felt very warm, even in the sun. With aContinue reading “Blown up (and down)”

Not the foggiest

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She saw this Victorian typewriter in a museum of brands in London and thought that it looked interesting. I agree. We woke up to a very misty and chilly morning with the temperature just above freezing. Both the mist and the temperature lifted during the day,Continue reading “Not the foggiest”

Plenty of sound and fury

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He came across what looks like a very superior bug hotel in the grounds of Nottingham University. After another noisy night here, where the roaring of the wind made it hard to sleep, we got another very windy and grey day today. On the plus side, itContinue reading “Plenty of sound and fury”

More rain but time for a walk too

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She and my brother Andrew are trying to match each other with swan pictures at the moment. This was Mary’s original effort today. We were woken by some very heavy rain, so after breakfast I walked down to the park bridge in a light drizzle to seeContinue reading “More rain but time for a walk too”

A slow day

It was so gloomy here today that I was pleased to have found for the guest picture a very sunny scene from Derby taken by my brother Andrew a day or two ago. I needed something to brighten things up. I poured four inches of rain out of my rain gauge yesterday, a measure ofContinue reading “A slow day”

Over excited

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She found these lovely lilies in a supermarket cafe where she was taking a well earned break. We had a very wet morning indeed here, with steady heavy rain making for a gloomy atmosphere outside. Luckily Dropscone came in at coffee time bringing scones with him, andContinue reading “Over excited”

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”

Up on the moor, down at the river

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s oldest son who now lives in Devon. He took this picture of people taking dressing up very seriously at a local festival. We had a day that started out wet and grey, and continued in that vein until the evening, when it brightened up just late enough to beContinue reading “Up on the moor, down at the river”
