I must remember that the Weekly Photo Challenge set by WordPress has moved from Friday to Wednesday.. anyway this week’s topic is about being Green. Green is everywhere, in landscape and floral photography.. so this week’s images were easy to find. Especially when it came to a weeping willow tree.
My first two images are flowers where the stems and leaves are green..

A photograph of a purple flower taken at Great Comp Gardens with Powder Paint Effect
Slowly and surely I am getting more and more mobile. And I am counting down the days until the 20th March when I see my consultant and I hope on that particular day he says I can remove these awful surgical stockings and that I am fit enough to drive. Being copped up is doing my head in to be honest. With just over one week to go before seeing him, I know these final few days are going to drag. Continue reading →
A photograph of Loch Lomond taken at Inveruglas in Scotland, processed with a Powder Paint Effect
Our holiday last year to Scotland was a little marred by my hip pain and lack of mobility. I would have loved to walk the Highlands and go off the beaten track a little, just to photograph the amazing scenery. But unfortunately that was not to be so most of the photos I took were in fact taken by the roadside. And for the WordPress photo challenge called The Road Taken, for me this was a perfect example of a photograph being taken on the road. Continue reading →

It was so lovely to get out last Monday, even though I didn’t walk far. However, I did send him off on an expedition down the locks at Allington, near Maidstone in Kent.

On the River at Allington Locks, Maidstone, Kent.
Whey hey, I am home from hospital. My right hip has been replaced and I can now walk without that excruciating pain. Taking it careful for the next 6 weeks to stop any chance of dislocation I am finding hard. However, I am so glad that awful pain has finally gone. I was only in hospital for 3 nights. And by Monday I felt good enough to have a little stroll along the banks of the River Medway at Allington Locks, near Maidstone in Kent. Continue reading →
A photograph of a valley taken from the A820 in Scotland as we headed towards Mallaig.
What can anybody say about Scotland and its inhabitants? Firstly they would have to say the locals are friendly, helpful and very welcoming and the landscape is breath-taking, especially through the Highlands. The only thing is they have a lot of rain. And with the rain comes some very stormy skies which within themselves are a photographer’s delight. Continue reading →
