River Dee in January

River Dee in January

I hope that this manages to capture the mood and feeling of chill winter’s afternoon when the mist lingers all day. We have had quite a few autumn gales which have kept the fog at bay so far this year and of course the trees have been stripped bare much earlier than usual by all that wind.

 

The Castle on the Dee

The Castle on the Dee

The remains of Threave Castle in The Stewartry of Dumfries & Galloway stands on an island in the river Dee. There’s a ferry which you can summon with a bell and which takes you across the water. Perhaps, one day I might actually ring that bell with intent. Until then it will have to be seen from afar.
