2013 in Retrospect

in 2013, this blog kind of froze

So here’s a few pictures by way of reflection on some of our travels in 2013

First up is a shot of a surviver of the legion of cranes that stood the length of the Clyde shipyards until as recently as the 1970’s. Few remain, and this one stands now over a scrapyard in Scotstoun. Seen here across the Clyde from Braehead, Renfrewshire

Next a shot from Bunarkaig, across Loch Lochy, to Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis, on a wintery morning in December 2012

This next was Glenfinnan, as the winter wore on. Taken on the afternoon of January 17th, at the relatively late hour of 16:37 (probably dark in London by then, tee hee)

Thence by swerve of shore and bend of bay, to the remote hamlet of Kingairloch, literally “at the head of the short loch”, in the Gaelic, which “short loch” is an inlet on the north shore of Loch Linnhe, in Morvern. This was on Saturday, February 2nd, at 17:15. The nights were fair drawing out by then!

On Monday, March 11th we were midway through a weeks’ holiday on the isle of Mull. Jim made this picture at 17:05...
