An adventure

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother Andrew’s walks in the countryside round Derby. He doesn’t have to go far from home to find some pleasantly spacious views. We had one of those days that figure in the old joke: if you don’t like the weather round here, wait for half an hourContinue reading “An adventure”

Blown up

Today’s guest picture was kindly sent to me from America by blog reader Gunta. Knowing that I like bridges, she sent me this picture of one of her Oregon examples. It is in Newport, Oregon crossing Yaquina Bay as one travels along the Oregon coast highway. Our spell of rather cool weather continued today. TheContinue reading “Blown up”

Left high and dry

The guest picture of the day is another from Dropscone’s recent walk.  He passed this fine tree on his way.  It seems to be involved in an intricate ballet step. We woke to a chilly morning, so chilly in fact that the street coffee morning meeting needed coats and was adjourned early on account ofContinue reading “Left high and dry”

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”

Cleaning up

Today’s guest post comes from our son Alistair. He found a welcome visitor in his garden and took this splendid picture of it. We had two unusual things to contend with when we got up. It had rained overnight and there was a greenfinch and a goldfinch on the feeder. I was able to copeContinue reading “Cleaning up”

Making the most of my one expedition

Today’s guest picture comes from Matilda.  She is off school but obviously getting good art lessons at home. Here, we had another dry day with a lot of thin cloud again.  It did get slightly warmer in the afternoon and may well have got into double figures at last. We are limited in what weContinue reading “Making the most of my one expedition”

Dennis comes before Dennis

The guest picture of the day comes from Dropscone’s pre-Brexit visit to Amsterdam.  He felt that I didn’t have enough pigeons on my recent blogs. We are awaiting the arrival of storm Dennis.  In the meantime, Dropscone came for coffee this morning.  Local readers will be well aware that Dropscone’s Sunday name is also Dennis,Continue reading “Dennis comes before Dennis”

Putting my boots on

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He had a moment to wander around in Borrowash this morning and was surprised to find a giraffe in the woods.  You can see it too if you look carefully.  It didn’t move a lot, he tells me. Last night I had wondered whether we would wakeContinue reading “Putting my boots on”

Modified rapture

Today’s guest picture comes from my nephew Dan who is in Tromsø in Norway.  It rained so much that he and his companion had to take refuge in the Tromsdalen Church, sometimes called the Arctic Cathedral. The forecast, which had suggested a sunny day and a temperature of five degrees by lunchtime, was partially right. Continue reading “Modified rapture”

Hitting the heights

Today’s guest picture is another from the files.  On his visit to Blackpool last month, Bruce was brave enough to venture onto the glass floor looking down from the top of the famous tower.  Rather him than me!  I don’t like the way that the thing seems to be held together by baler twine. WeContinue reading “Hitting the heights”
