My entry for this weeks Photo challenge, meeting it on two fronts, pigeons being the most pedestrian of birds, and capturing them and the little fella walking.
My take for this weeks photography challenge – living in the layers is inevitable when you’re in the Scottish Highlands. I am here alot at the moment, and see Rannoch Moor in all its epic glory in every weather imaginable.
And for your erudition I will give you a bonus read of one of my favourite poems by Stanley Kunitz. He died at 101 , and after reading his obituary in a newspaper , I wrote my own poem inspired by his poetry. You can read that too here. bit.ly/2jSxJid
This must be one of the most tragic memorials I have witnessed.Studies have shown that the majority of Pompeii’s citizens would have been killed almost instantly from the sudden surges of intense heat that erupted into the Bay of Naples without warning. The flows of volcanic ash and gas moved at speeds of up to 700 kilometres an hour. The ash covered those people, and left us a stark impression of an ancient civilization. Was this person waiting for inevitable death?
Always looking for a new angle.

When we are taking photographs – that’s we as in my husband and I – we look not just at the composition , but take in the whole effect. And texture is one of the effects we both love to capture. This is not mine, it belongs to my husband. But he has given me permission to share with you for the challenge this week to examine texture. I could go on and on. But I won’t.
I love trees, they shape my thoughts and feelings and connect me to the wonder of a living universe. So when we came across this bizarre scene in Glengarry , West Highlands, Scotland, we took a double take. It had a very eerie atmosphere, creating a possible backdrop for a Dr Who episode. Should I let them know?

A timely challenge for the WordPress weekly photo challenge – not strictly a bridge I know, but a stunning viaduct which is a bridge for Harry Potter’s train to get him to Hogwarts. We were here on Wednesday and the visibility was fabulous. Often it’s shrouded in mist, which adds atmosphere, but detracts from the view of the train.
And of course there is the added bonus that it bridges the gap between reality and fantasy – you did know Harry Potter was made up don’t you?
