The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Twilights Traverse

Sometimes this little Island can be a beautiful place…. Mostly though it’s grim and cold and miserable and windy and flat and barren and un-appealing and cold (did I mention cold already.. lol) Oh and wet and damp and full of sheep and rabbits and altogether not very nice…. But sometimes… Just occasionally… Every once in a while… a glimmer of beauty pokes its head above the parapet…. and we get a gem…. just for a fleeting moment…

Yeah OK, maybe it’s not “quite” that bad… lol… But it sure does seem like it during this particular winter, where we seem to be having far to much of the mushy drab grey wet stuff… and no I don’t mean soggy sheep either… lol… Speaking of which “Why don’t sheep shrink in the rain ??”…. Just a thought !!…. ;)

Roll on spring is what I say…

But anyways, here’s some of that occasional beauty, but despite appearances, this very much had to be a “quick” shot, as it was circa brass monkeys 0°C, with a windchill equivalent to a polar bears tiny chilly frozen cold bits… Hopefully my own particular frozen extremities were worth the effort…

  1. It’s just as cold up t’North – this has been one, long, cold winter. Roll on some warmth please!

    What a top sunset. I remember going to Sheerness in the mid 90s – well when I say remember I went to a lot of pubs (so it has become a bit hazy and vague).
