25th January

At Last! a Sunny Day!!

up at the crack of dawn(ok, about 8.20am...) ;-)
and up to the golf course to get a few pics of the nice sky
then back for breakfast.

later on nipped to the Discovery Centre to find a few touristy bits to send to Mosey
and bought myself a book called 'Old Bute' which contains pics of Bute in the olden days,
there's some nice looking buildings in there that dont exist anymore, which is a shame!
(Islanders of the future could say the same thing too with the recent knocking downs!)

anyway, my mum comes back from a day of shopping in Greenock(on the mainland)
and says she's bought me a book,
and guess what? its the same thing!! we bought them around the same time too! :-o

Your Mum knows what you like! Amazing to see Cordyline Australis growing
on a Scottish Isle! Lovely to see the sunshine up your way - wish we could
send you some of ours - it was 42C again today! A really nice shot!

A very soft and appealing image.

You and Mum ARE in tune. Lovely scene here. Looks very peaceful.

LOL you must both be telepathic! Could indeed be a tropical scene... if it wasn't for the civic seating. ;-)

I like this shot a lot, Zak. The colours are great so is the sharpness. it looks very tropical there.

Looks very much like summer.

This is an excellent photograph--it almost looks unreal with the precise trim of the grass and the neatness of the place. (Guess I am getting too accustomed to Katrina mess).
Very lovely image. Your mum bought the same book at the same time, huh? What is it they say about great minds..........

WOW, I like the sunshine up in Bute. Like the composition of the bench and the natural framing of the mountains by the tree, did you photoshop the palm trees:-)
