November Sunday

A gorgeous, sunny crisp cold Sunday here today in Glasgow imageNext door’s cherry tree is almost bare of its leaves; the sun streams through the branches.

Tara has been enjoying the sunshine and fresh air all morning

Up North again

I visited Inverness last week again; my job takes me there twice a year and it always gives great photo opportunities! It was cold and crispy, my favourite kind of autumn weather. The river glistened in the afternoon sun on Saturday

While I took these photos, the bells of the cathedral were ringing. As you can imagine, it was a wonderful sound to accompany these images.

Impressive castle framed by the trees

Here it is later on in the evening with twinkling fairy lights in the trees on the riverbank

I managed some unintended Bokeh in this next photo – trying to photograph the moon is tricky, and I wouldn’t normally post out of focus pics but it looks pretty!

Happy times in a lovely place 😄

 

 

 

 

 

October review

image

image

October has been a beautiful month; mild weather, harvesting fruit and vegetables, turning leaves of golden and russet hues, and wonderful skies filled with pink and orange clouds. I made several flavours of gin based liqueur for Christmas, in the photo, you can see raspberry and blueberry. I decided to crochet myself something to wear, there’s a glimpse of it above and I will reveal more soon. It’s been busy at work too, but happily with enough time to enjoy all of the above 😄
