“I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”
Isaac Newton

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
Albert Einstein

Rules are made to be broken. I have lasted until mid-July on one photo a day but today I had to break my one-a-day rule. I was just totally unable to choose between these two...

A piece of natural art on the sea shore.

A female Common Blue.

Playing peep

I suspect the game of peek-a-boo is as old as Man himself. And it helps keep us all young!

This really is the most wonderful place. You don't have to venture out of doors to get a fantastic view. And every day it is different.

I wonder what weather these clouds will bring?

I went into Stornoway this morning. This was a photo I took of a couple of oildrums floating in the inner harbour.

Tuesday 30th June 2009

I had a walk over the headland, up to the cairn and down to the loch. This is Dun Bayble - an Iron Age fort, typical of those found on Lewis.

Monday 29th June 2009

I went into town this morning and came back on the bus after doing some shopping and having a wander around. The harbour looked splendid in the sunshine.
