Getafix!

By MrsS    
NO - - not the Druid from Asterix the Gaul, just refers to my need to post a tree! Oh, and possibly Dougie's need to see "his" tree again, too! Wink

So, here it is - - that tree from Millarochy Bay, just to remind Ian (newy17) what it looks like, in case he gets back up there without a guide! Wink

I know I have posted similar, but I've included more of the pebbled shore-line in this one, cos I quite like the colours.

Happy Monday - - back to the daily grind for me tomorrow, been sorting out my classroom today!

Thanks for taking the time to call in, all comments really welcome, as always Smile

Cheers!
Fran xx

Let me be the first to congratulate you on a lovely shot, I like the coloured pebbles and the way you go from that to those distant mountains.

Have you been bitten by the "no-spaces-in-titles"-bug as well, Fran? Has Mark infected you? And here I was, hoping it wasn't contageous...

Done on purpose, Conrad. "Getafix" is the village Druid in Asterix the Gaul, so used his name Smile

Hey Fran, I love that sky and the water as well as what look to be a whole bunch of great stuff in your gallery. A further examination will be required I can see. For now I'm wondering if Dougie's tree is still alive?
