Fleeting Moments   Leave a comment

A little ice overhang that had developed on the boot of our car after sliding down the back hatch is melting in the sun. I only got a couple of photos before it fell off, so this is all you get, messed up depth of field and all 😉

Storm Gertrude   Leave a comment

I was going to publish a drawing commission over on 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.

UrsprĂŒnglich war fĂŒr heute die Veröffentlichung einer kĂŒrzlich fertiggestellte Zeichnung auf vorgesehen. Nach Erscheinen eines hier nicht so hĂ€ufigen NaturphenomĂ€ns habe ich mich aber dazu entschlossen, davon ein Foto hochzuladen. Die Zeichnung gibt’s dann nĂ€chste Woche.
Perlmuttwolken, oder polare StratosphĂ€renwolken, 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 😉

Undeniably Fall   Leave a comment

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!
