February Garden

Good morning all.

The weather so far this month has been very mixed to say the least! After Saturday's awful weather last weekend eldest and I did manage to get out and do a workshop on Sunday. The sun shone all day for us and it wasn't too cold...perfect for a day spent at the seaside. This last week has been very cold and there is more snow forecast and high winds for this week....I'm thinking the rescheduled workshop on Wednesday won't go ahead!

Throwback Thursday - Italy

Good morning all.

In September 2015 Mark (my younger son) and I went on an Italian Adventure...3 nights in each of Pompeii, Rome and Venice.

#1day12pics - February

Good morning all.

On Saturday eldest and I should have been doing a Long Exposures workshop but rain, thick cloud and generally miserable weather stopped play. As it was the first Saturday of the month it meant #1day12pics had to be done from home.

Super Blue Moon

Good morning all.

Apologies for being so quiet last week...I was away to a funeral then the dreaded lurgy struck so I was laid low for a few days. I should've spent this weekend doing some photography courses locally...Saturday was a washout though with rain and thick cloud so it's been postponed. Yesterday on the other hand was fabulous and we were out from dawn till dusk doing mainly long exposures. Watch out for a review soon.

Astrologically January was quite busy with two super moons and a total lunar eclipse...although this wasn't visible in the UK.

Silver Linings!

Good morning all.

The upside of the patio work being done is that the birdhouse and all the potted plants had to be moved out of the way...they ended up on the small patio next to the back porch. So now they are only a few feet from the window, great for getting close up shots with my long lens.

Snow Joke!

Good morning all.

So most of Scotland has been blasted with snow recently with our neighbours in the Scottish Borders having several inches....we on the other hand had several flakes!

Much to my disgust!

Throwback Thursday - Vienna

Good morning all.

I love the warm sunshine but my next favourite weather condition is sunshine with a real hard frost...there was plenty of that in Vienna in December 2016 when I went with my two youngest to visit the Christmas Markets.
