Breath of fresh air

Finally the wind has dropped and the sky has been relatively clear. So I went for a long walk with N. before she disappears to Madrid for two weeks. I wish I was going too, but I wouldn't get it past budgetary control, aka my husband.

But I really enjoyed the walk after spending the morning 10ft off the ground pruning
my neighbour's apple tree. What a mess, crossed branches rubbing, scrubby growth choking the centre etc. I've not finished, but my arm got too sore to continue, so more tomorrow!

And I got an invitation to the Scottish Seabird Centre photography awards at a posh Edinburgh hotel. They are announcing the winners on the night, but I don't think I'll get anything this year.

These are four shots of the river estuary this afternoon.

Wow Apprentice, I came by to drop of a pressie which you will find at my blog and was blown away by these photos. Fantasic. Oh and BTW I've nominated you for an award.

I love the first, with the roots, and the last with the lonely boulder and the reflected sky...
I can taste the air

Thank you both. It's a favourite place of mine -I suppose I just like empty and lonely places. Add the curlews calling and it is a really soulful place.

V thanks for the award thingy. i'll get to as soon as I can. I'm just in from sorting out that apple tree and I'm drookit (wet) and heading for the shower!

Oh man, these remind me of a place called The Cob in Lewis where I used to ride ponies.

That root one is ace.

Best luck with the Seabird Photography awards too. It sounds tres swanky.

Well done!
