One step back

Today’s guest picture, forwarded to me by Mike Tinker and taken by his daughter Liz, shows a delightful scene with cormorants at Linlithgow. I was a bit taken aback last night. After feeling that my back was definitely on the mend through the day, I got a bit of shock when I tried to lieContinue reading “One step back”

What fun!

Today’s guest picture is another from Gunta, who sent me this charming photo of snowy plovers resting in horse hoofprints on a beach. We had a day with plenty of birds about and some dry and occasionally sunny weather… …which came with the first sign of snow of the year when I looked out ofContinue reading “What fun!”

Not much happening

Today’s guest picture comes from Simon, a camera club member who is working on the continent.  Knowing that I like bridges, he sent me this historic example by which one can cross the border between Switzerland and Liechtenstein. I had such a dull day that I was very tempted to copy the famous occasion onContinue reading “Not much happening”

A full day

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He sent me this gorgeous shot of the sun rising over East Wemyss this morning.  (I suspect that he may have run the image through the filter on his phone.) We had a sunny day here too and Mrs Tootlepedal thought that it would be a goodContinue reading “A full day”

Getting the picture

Today’s guest picture is another from the eternally sunlit shore at East Wemyss.  Tony is making really good use of his dog walking time. We had a chilly (3°C) but kindly day with a very gentle wind and no rain.  The sun didn’t appear so it was dull but all the same we could haveContinue reading “Getting the picture”

Up and down

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  He sent it to me to show that his daughter Susan is not just a fine recorder player but a good cook too. This is her beef Wellington. We had another warm and dry December day here but the 35 mph wind in the morning was a forcible reminderContinue reading “Up and down”

Another singing Sunday.

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce’s trip to the west coast.  He has acquired a new pocket camera and as well as taking fine scenic pictures (more of them in later posts), he pointed it at a young buzzard on a pole. We had another fine and sunny day today, though a bitContinue reading “Another singing Sunday.”

The weather gods’ little joke

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Marianne, our son Tony’s partner.  It shows Tony getting some sausage making tips at the ‘Bowhouse Food Weekend’ in St Monans yesterday.  Marianne tells me that they intend to eat the sausages that he made.  They are very brave. After two days of miserable rain and wind,Continue reading “The weather gods’ little joke”

Another pedal, another tootle

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my former colleague Ada and shows a very pretty view of Arkleton Lochan.  (She should come to the Camera Club if she has more pictures like this one.) It was a cold and mean day today and I resisted the temptation to go up to the MoorlandContinue reading “Another pedal, another tootle”

A gentle day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who is currently enjoying the bracing sea side at Scarborough. We had quite a bright and pleasant morning, very calm and a few degrees above freezing, which was made better by the discovery that the water had now cleared and was I free to drink and cookContinue reading “A gentle day”
