An autumn view taken at Caerlaverock Castle when we visited last year with the grandchildren. The castle is unusual for being triangular in plan and originally it stood on the coast but the sea has now retreated across mud flats.
This picture has been included in a selection going forward for a regional inter club competition though if I were the judge I would be sure to point out the tree branches that partially obscure the castle. Removing them in photoshop would be fiddly but possible, but my justification would be on the grounds of being creatively less obvious, as well as incompetence.
A winter time view from Colin’s Shed….
I came across these red poppies while driving from Rangemore to Stafford in Staffordshire in August.
As I was photographing the flowers a vintage car from the 1930s sailed past.
Tut! My first photo of it was blurred. Ah well, at least I got one that wasn’t!
Two further views taken at the Crawick Multiverse.
The Crawick Multiverse is a sculptured landscape by artist Charles Jencks’ and has been created on the site of a former open cast coal mine in Upper Nithsdale.
Logan Botanical Gardens.
The light was very difficult under the trees but these scarlet ferns seen against the green was too good to miss.
