Storm Gertrude   Leave a comment

I was going to publish a drawing commission over on http://www.shadedfaces.wordpress.com today, one that I completed just recently, but I changed my mind when the morning twilight and the dark skies of storm Gertrude presented us with a special treat. They were seen at numerous locations in the north of Scotland today and I later found out that this is a nacreous, or mother-of-pearl cloud, formed high up in the stratosphere which normally has no clouds because it is too cold.

Ursprünglich war für heute die Veröffentlichung einer kürzlich fertiggestellte Zeichnung auf http://www.schattengestalten.wordpress.com vorgesehen. Nach Erscheinen eines hier nicht so häufigen Naturphenomäns habe ich mich aber dazu entschlossen, davon ein Foto hochzuladen. Die Zeichnung gibt’s dann nächste Woche.
Perlmuttwolken, oder polare Stratosphärenwolken, wurden heute im morgendlichen Zwielicht des Sturms ‘Gertrude’ an vielen Orten im Norden Schottlands gesichtet. Konnte ich Euch doch nicht vorenthalten.

Star Anise   –   Not much time today so just a quick one. Twelve days to go, time to get a move on with the Christmas decorations and the baking 😉

Toadstool   –   I have no idea what this is, I found this along with the forgetmenot during my walk at Millbuie. It is a sign that autumn is definitely here, and of winter to come. I wonder if it is edible? Not sure I would want to find out by trying, though…

Rays Of Hope   Leave a comment

Something subtle for this momentous day. Just over half of the population woke up to find they got what they wanted, just under half did not. Let us now all come together and make the future work. And current and future governments take note: Never underestimate the power which HOPE can create within a nation!

Meltdown   Leave a comment

This is my old hard drive, or rather, part of it. It had packed in on me and I decided to perform an autopsy. I thought I might as well have a look at the marvels of engineering that lurk inside. Cause of death was confirmed as plain old age.

And The Light Goes On   2 comments

It is that time of year again …. I am no friend of the long nights drawing in but this is the one thing I look forward to every year. I get to see the big light in the sky getting switched on, as the golden globe rises slowly above the town, and that without having to get up in the middle of the night. I am no landscape photographer and it shows, and I haven’t been able to persuade my immediate neighbours to knock down their houses so I can have a better view, but it doesn’t matter. It is an unmissable spectacle every single time and I am going to share it with you whether you like it or not 😉
