Vital spark

By Nettles  
Hi all,

Just got back from a stint in a VERY wet Scotland, and boy was it wetSad. While the rest of the UK was basking in glorious sunshine Tongue for two weeks we were in wall to wall rain that just never stopped, that is except for the day that I took this shot on the dock of Inverary.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while again, but I've had a few things happening, mostly not good, so I didn't really feel like uploading, but I'm back to normal now.
I will try and catch up with you all today, but please forgive me if it takes a day or so.

Hope you are all well and not too sunburnt Wink

Beautiful reflections in a satisfyingly grotty water surface, contrasting with clean, clear light. Good to see you around, sorry you've had a tough patch.

Hard when the weather doesn't play ball, specially when your on holiday, good to hear things are getting back to normal for you. The muted colours go with the weather you had, whatever they work.

Hi Annette, good to see you posting again, I hope that all your troubles have been settled and you are back to normal very soon.
This is a lovely image - I took one similar a couple of years ago when we were there. It's a lovely little town - did you go into the prison?
