February Sunday afternoon walk

It has been a beautiful sunny day today, with very little wind.  Before the Siberian beast (described this evening by the weather forecast as being 'brutally cold' - can't wait) blows through during the next few days, bringing its chill factor with it, the dogs and I went for a lovely walk along a grassy path which skirts the golf courses of Kilspindie and Craigielaw, just outside Aberlady.  We came back through woodland.  

On the golf courses alongside us, there were lots of people on a good walk spoilt (Churchill's words, not mine, although I do concur) but we concentrated on the views to the north, across the Firth of Forth to Fife, to the east with North Berwick law sitting faintly on the horizon, and to the west where Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh were just about visible against the bright winter sun.


  1. A great picture of a curlew amongst many others, it must be lovely to see so much more with a proper camera. What digital camera would you recommend for a beginner? x

    1. Hi A, thank you for your lovely message - as always! You are very generous about my photos, but I can assure you that I don't use a complicated camera. Wouldn't know where to start! I use a Lumix Panasonic DMC-TZ60. You can adjust the settings but I'm afraid that is all beyond me and I just point and squirt! The settings I use are automatic. Intelligent Auto, or choose a variety of the options from the Scenic settings. You can do all that just as well as me! Simples!!! A x

  2. The first photo looks like an entirely different planet...very Dr Who. The last few of the woods look like paintings...very clever camera work A.
    What a wonderful place you live lucky. xx
