Scenes

A few scenes from my own camera in recent years (just to prove to Mimi that it can be sunny in Durham, even in April two years ago)...



And Edinburgh is good from some unusual positions (like a toy train set)...



Some are obvious locations, but making the best of it...



Pitlochry looks good with cloud, and, back in England, Lindisfarne (below) has a number of viewpoints available, of which this is but one, and it is indeed Holy Island.

What stunning photos, thank you for posting them!
I hope Mimi stops worrying about woolly socks!

Really nice photos. When I spent a week in Scotland back in 1999, I took one of the most beautiful train rides ever on the Highland Line from Glasgow to Mallaig; traveled to Skye and en route back to Glasgow, I climbed Ben Nevis. Also took a train to visit Dundee, but now I'm sorry I didn't go to Pitlochry. Evensong at Durham Cathedral was nice. But man, Lindisfarne looks bleak, but I guess it was a real hardscrabble life in the time of St Aidan, too. Thanks for posting the photos!

Great photos, Adrian. As you saw, my picture of Durham Cathedral has a bit of that white stuff in it. In truth, in the many times I've visited in England, the weather has smiled on me. What bad English weather? Of course, the earliest in the year that I've been there was in May, and I was mostly in the South. We shall see. Your pictures are encouraging. Thanks.

I gather that's you in the picture. You're much better looking than your caricature.
