Wow I’ve only just submitted a Gallery entry – NATURE (click it!) and now the new one is up LOL! As soon as I seen the theme of PLAYTIME, I just KNEW what picture it HAD to be!
It took this picture a few days ago, for my blipfoto account, and named it “Scottish Summers”. This is how the kids roll round here… rain?! BAH! It’s STILL PLAYTIME, they just get their jackets on and out they go!
Lets face it… this is Scotland. If they didn’t go out and play in the rain, they’d not get out much to play would they! 😉
Happy “Summer” everyone! I bet you’re seeing more sunshine than we are up here in the Highlands!
I’ve been going through the gazillions of photographs that I’ve taken and the first one I’d like to show you all as is one of me and a fellow blogger enjoying nature. This photograph was shot by my 6 year old son who is following in his Mummy’s footsteps of being a photography lover! It was taken a couple of weeks ago, during our trip down to Cheshire to visit – and stay with – Livi aka Princess L (find her blog HERE), the photo was taken on our last day when Livi was showing around her home town in all it’s beauty. I love this shot not just because it was taken in a beautiful setting, but because also of what it represents. A friendship, that blossomed through Twitter and ended up in me and my son travelling from the Highlands of Scotland to Cheshire to finally meet up! This is us by the river, and it was a gorgeous little spot of nature!
The next up are these eyrar of swans! Yep apparently that’s the collective name for these beauties.
Seen these last week, along the River Ness which flows through my city. The most I’ve ever seen together before then had been three – this time there were FIFTEEN!
and last up, this gorgeous sunset shot I took a few weeks ago… this is a view along the River Ness up towards my house – which is along the banks of the Ness. I took this photograph from one of the pedestrian bridges across the Ness.
And last but not least… TREES. I love trees too Tara!
Here’s some acorn trees. These trees are on the Ness Islands, which are islands on the River Ness.
Apart from the photograph of me and fellow Tweeter and Blogger – Livi, the other three pictures were all taken within a 20 minute walk from my house…
What a gorgeous world we live in!

I was excited when I seen the prompt for this weeks The Gallery. The prompt was “Outside my front door”.
I live along the River Ness which flows from Loch Ness though my city of Inverness. I went along the river to meet a couple of friends for a walk around the Ness Islands. These are two islands in the middle of the river, connected by footbridges. I took my camera to snap a couple of shots for The Gallery. I didn’t get my favourite buildings BEFORE the Castle on my walk, as I was as usual, running late for meeting near the castle.
Clicking these photographs will let you see them in a larger size.
Well that’s The Gallery done and dusted for another week! I was late this week in putting mine up due to the flooding down in England totally flooding the exchange my internet service provider uses, so I had no internet at all for a couple of days.
