A winter view across the Firth of Clyde to Ailsa Craig, a volcanic plug and source of most of the world's granite curling stones.

Apologies if I am not around much in the next few days: the Powers that Be have decreed that some bedroom decoration is in order before family members arrive for a visit. "Homebase, here I come!"

Details: see EXIF

Many thanks to all who CandC'd on "From Eaglesham Moor": all your comments are so much appreciated.

Ronnie.

A shot steeped in atmosphere, with lovely light. The barely seen boat is a bonus in this lovely composition.

Beautiful image, Ronnie - the island is the same color as the sea and seems part of it. Wonderful colors. I don't envy you redecorating!

Now don't you get any paint on your photography goggles Ronnie. I gave up diy some time ago, we need to work on keeping people employed who are much better at it than we are. So maybe we need to get rid of David Cameron and his cronnies.

BTW nice shot of the wee island in the Clyde. Been there myself just recently.

Lovely shot Ronnie. Love the light rays coming down. Think I watched a programme not so long ago about the granite being cut from here for the curling stones. Moira

Love this one! Enjoy the decorating, I must admit as the weather slowly gets better it makes the house look dingy and in need of decorating...oh dear, my only saving grace is the fact that I'm having my THIRD knee replacement ( not many people get three but I like to be different!) in six weeks!

Happy decorating - I have plenty to do too - great shot - there used to be a high quality manufacturer of large diesel engines called Ailsa Craig which was based in Ashford

Wonderful shot Ronnie, I thought you'd used a longer lens as it seems so close.
Glad my wife doesn't look in on my EPZ activities or you'd have been giving her ideas, our kitchen is looong overdue for an overhaul, luckily she's finally given up nagging me about it, though that doesn't mean she's accepted my tardiness Smile
