Plenty of sound but not much light

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s walk with his dog.  He needed full colour to record this parakeet. We woke up to a bright and frosty morning and I had to scrape ice off the car windscreen before I could drive south for another singing lesson with Mary, our Langholm choir conductor. Continue reading “Plenty of sound but not much light”
