A Walk To The Shops And Back

Today was a beautiful day. Scotland has a bit of a bad reputation when it comes to weather, and to be fair, we do have some fairly heavy rain, gusty winds, horizontal hale and dense fog to contend with, in fact, often on the same day! However, today was not one of those days. Today the sun was unobscured by mist or cloud, and the sky was a clear cerulean. Our breath became visible as it left our bodies, and the tips of our noses turned red with the cold, but it was a wonderful day to be alive. As you might have guessed, I took some photos, as I just had to share this day with as many as I could.

Does the airplane stream in this last picture look like a single helix to you, or is it just me?

    Sorry it’s taken me a while to respond to our comments! I’ve been desperately striving to meet work deadlines. I’ve finally put the books to one side for a break, and so I thought I’d take the opportunity to say thank you to all of you for your lovely comments on my photographs and my blog. I would also like to take the opportunity to say welcome to Rowena. I hope you visit again soon!
    Also, about copyright, I honestly haven’t considered my photos worthy of protection in that way, Nicholas. Maybe I should, though. I’ll check it out…
    Once again, thank you all for your support and encouragement. I truly is very appreciated 🙂

    It was lush and lovely, Nouveaufauves, and if we don’t get another day like it this year, then at least I have the photos to evoke the memory.
