1st December, frostiness

1st December, frostiness

Frosty start to the day,
lovely sunrise, beautiful clouds similar to yesterday
But I only saw the end of it as I was still in bed!

My day has been full of helpful people.
I took this whilst nipping over to Aboyne.
There is a man who lives there who knows all there is to know about Citroens.
Even the company rings him up when they can't come up with an answer.
He helped me with a mysterious intermittent fault with my car.
While I was there, I had a phone call that the central heating had packed up and a radiator was leaking.
The plumber sorted it all in minutes, checked everything over and only wanted a tenner.
Then I had help with tittivating this pic.
I thought it was too much bother,
but he showed me that it was quite simple.
So I had a go myself. (see who lavishes praise on the tittivation below and you might get a clue;-)
So thanks to all the good people out there who offer assistance for its own sake and don't expect anything back other than the chance to help out!

Beautiful tones and succession of layers. The curves in the background are very aesthetic.

Wow, such a outstanding photo! Just like Chinese painting!

You truly smartened this picture up nicely. I love those layers, they appear like layers anyway. The colors as well are very nice. The dim colors what I think sets the mood. Very nice composition and how nice to be surrounded with people who act in kindness and not for profit.

Is tittivatated anything like being nippleized?
Does it hurt or feel good?
Hmmm.... Anyway, this is a gorgeous landscape, northy...
