For a little while this afternoon I had a short walk at Minnowburn ... very calm and still ... beautiful and full of atmosphere.
A few brave souls were out with dogs ... I did wish that Eliot had been in the car but even without him I enjoyed a few minutes of reflection and peace.
The "obligatory" red coat just happened to move into the shot ... that seems to be one of the secrets of an interesting picture! I've sent a similar one to this off to BBC so you never know ... some evening when they're looking for a "misty damp day picture" it might illustrate the weather!
This place must be beautiful when the trees have a few more leaves!
And I came home, not only with a black eye but also some delicious food ... my sister and her husband brought a "food parcel" and this pie ended up being a midnight feast ... comfort food, I suppose, when sleep wouldn't come. It was particularly good!
And the lesson from the story ... pick up your feet when you're crossing a busy road unless you want to perform an advertising stunt; and, I guess the dry cleaners didn't mind seeing the same jacket a second time in one week!
