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!”

Singing and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. At first glance, you may think that you can see many Santas in this festive shop display, but a closer examination will show multiple self portraits of the clever photographer. We had a much better day here today as far as the weather went. Although there wereContinue reading “Singing and sunshine”

Pulling, pushing, perambulating and playing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found this fine mediaeval bridge for me on a visit to Fountains Abbey. We had our first genuinely chilly morning since the late spring today. Our local weather station recorded a low of 3°C (38°F) in the early hours. It was a generally sunny day though,Continue reading “Pulling, pushing, perambulating and playing”

Cold and clear

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She took it to show that the sun shines on our children wherever they are, though it did take the sun quite a long time to get to London today. The promised change in the weather duly arrived, and we woke to a cloudless sky and aContinue reading “Cold and clear”

An unexpected opportunity

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows that they have autumn colour in London too. We woke to sub zero temperatures (-2°C) but some cheerful sunshine made up for the cold. I had a look at the birds after breakfast . . . . . . and then went for a shortContinue reading “An unexpected opportunity”

Rain fall

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by our friend Gavin. His daughter is in Borculo in the Netherlands and found this equivalent of our Beechy Plains. It looks better than ours does at the moment. It had rained all night, so before I had my breakfast, I thought that I should go and lookContinue reading “Rain fall”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture is another of Laura’s from St Joseph, Michigan. We got up to some heavy showers and strong winds here today. It wasn’t the best weather for the last day of Clare, Alistair and Matilda’s stay with us, but we made the best of it. Mrs Tootlepedal had a busy morning taking theContinue reading “Winding down”

The end of the road

Today’s guest picture comes from a couple of weeks ago and shows a rather slanted view. The sunshine will give you a clue that it was taken in East Wemyss by our son Tony. It was cooler than yesterday here, but it was fine again and the wind was nippy but fairly gentle. We spentContinue reading “The end of the road”

A twist of fate

Today’s guest picture comes from from my Welsh correspondent Keiron. It shows a handsome bandstand in Victoria Park, Neath. With the clouds sitting heavily on top of our hills when we got up, the day started out slightly chilly and grey. This didn’t stop me walking round to the shop for essential supplies after breakfast,Continue reading “A twist of fate”

Head down

Today’s glorious guest picture comes from Tony in East Wemyss. It was taken just over a week ago and is a reminder of those sunny snowy days earlier this month which seem long past now. There was not the slightest hint of sunshine here today. It was raining when we got up and it looksContinue reading “Head down”
