Not for the faint-hearted

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

Monday Window – Saint Martial sur Isop

Stained glass again this week, and another window from the old church in the nearby village of Saint Martial sur Isop. The image also gives a good idea of the thickness of the walls.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 13 – Beginnings

One quarter of the way through the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge and the theme is ‘Beginnings’. Which may seem a bit late, but in terms of nature the timing is spot on.

New life is beginning everywhere – including on our laurel bushes. We’re never short of a bayleaf when the recipe demands one.

The Eyes Have It

Cee’s topic this week is birds. As selective colour is permitted – and, I think, really works in this case – here is an owl (I’m afraid I cannot remember what kind).

The plumage is black and white in any case, so all I had to do was desaturate the greens in the background. Those orange irises are really very striking.

Foggy winter morning

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Connect

Frank’s theme for his Tuesday Photo Challenge this week is ‘Connect’: a poignant topic in the current times.

This image was taken from a hill on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Look carefully and you can see all three of the bridges that connect Edinburgh to the Kingdom of Fife.

Oh, and that white thing in the air on the left is an aeroplane. Remember them?
