The Adventure starts

Jack and his mates set off today for a 2 week cycling holiday in Belgium.
Here they are at the end of our street on the first leg to get the ferry from Rosyth to Zeebruge.
Have great time lads, keep safe.

Harlaw twilight

The sun shining on the reservoir at Harlaw was quite beautiful-if difficult to photograph!

Playing around...

....with photo effects.
I have started the Jessica Sprague frames and effects on line course. it was on a couple of weeks age but I didn't have time to do it then, so I'm working through it now. So here's the original:

at Berwick Upon Tweed.

We had a run out to Alnwick and Berwick on Tweed today.
I was not really in the mood for photography today. The weather was dull and the light was flat.
This is one of the better photos.
