    I couldn't resist a sneaky peek under the trees this afternoon when we were on the golf course and sure enough the 'shrooms' are coming along nicely. Here is the first of what I hope will be many. It looks like a big chocolate muffin but looks can b...0

  • 365 Day 254 - Oak leaved hydrangea

    The theme for this week's macro challenge is abstract. I don't do well with woolly themes like this, I'd rather be asked to photographs something specific, like bananas, however abstract it is, so here goes. My trouble is that I don't have any imag...0

  • 365 Day 250 - Love locks at Pitlochry

    I had never heard of love locks but when we discovered a lot of padlocks secured to the wire suspension bridge in Pitlochry today I did a google search. Apparently it is fairly common practice for devoted couples to secure padlocks in different plac...0

  • 365 Day 248 - Loch Tay

    A 20 minute walk from our cottage takes us to the banks of Loch Tay and what a lovely spot it is too. I have worked out that if I get up early I should catch the sunrise over the loch from this spot. Whether it will happen or not remains to be seen!...0

  • 365 Day 246 - Welcome home

    Last time we travelled north I attempted and failed to take a photo as we crossed the border. This time I succeeded. Well strictly speaking it was before we crossed the border otherwise I wouldn't have got the sign in! 0

  • 365 Day 245 - Sophie

    Another photo where the original sharp photo is at home on my PC. This one was taken at the same time and is not at all sharp so I have played around with some of the effects in iPhoto. This is one of the artistic effects, not sure what it is calle...0

  • 365 Day 241 - Danger, deep water

    Still on the theme of golf, this is one of the ponds that we have to drive across. My ball doesn't often go in the water these days, just as well as it is deep! 0
