A cold start

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon.   He came across a tree beside the river at Canonbie, about which it can be truly said that the bottom has fallen out of its world. We had a frosty start to the day here but thanks to my policy of rising slowly and late,Continue reading “A cold start”

A delightful surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother’s permitted walks.  He tells me that the bluebells were much more exciting in real life than they are in the picture, but that is always the case as any photographer will tell you.  That is why photo editing programs sell so well.  I think the bluebellsContinue reading “A delightful surprise”

The sharpest cut

Today’s guest picture comes from Tom in South Africa.  He was in a position to see the famous Table Mountain but found it covered by the cloud known as the Table Cloth. We had another dry and cloudy day here today.  In theory it was quite warm but in practice a real chill in theContinue reading “The sharpest cut”

Heavy breathing

Today’s guest pictures, sent to me by Bruce, shows some of the inhabitants of Gilnockie who haven’t decided how they are going to vote in the forthcoming general election. It was hard to know who or what to blame.  Was it the dry spell making for dusty conditions, was it the flowers in the gardenContinue reading “Heavy breathing”
