Three Aberdeen Angus heifers seen seen on the regular cow count we do for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. There are 14 of them but finding them in amongst the trees is difficult. We counted another 9 some distance away. Two were (we hope) hidden somewhere:

TW - mobile steak!! BHS your photo was so delightful; Prince Edward Island, redhead, braids - why it was Anne of Greengables reincarnated! Thank you Prof - it is good to know that little thing was not alone. They sure can be tiny, can't they? I feel better knowing the situation when i look at it now

The beautiful village of Plockton on the west coast of Scotland, to TV viewers of the Television programme Hamish Macbeth it is Locdubh.

Is a wonderful scottish village where life stands still.

Yesterday I helped my friend move his yacht, but with strong winds and tricky navigation, didn't have time for photos.
Here's one from last week, sailing off Portsmouth. In many years of sailing I can't recall seeing a yacht with jet black sails - quite striking!

I really like that shot, Shelley, it looks so calm and peaceful. Picqero, I don't think I've ever seen black sails before. It IS striking.

I took this in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida just before I dropped my camera last month. I posted a strange colored image of it in Image Art. I would have liked this photo so much better except for the dang telephone wires. Seems like they're everywhere these days.

Shelly,
You can't take an red-headed 11 year old girl to Prince Edward Island and NOT have her BE Anne of Green Gables. She had such a wonderful time being Anne for a week. I can't count how many Japanese tourists took her picture! I put a picture of her up on the Family and Friends page.

One of our more rural roads in Totteridge, where many Arsenal footballers and other stars of stage and screen have lived.

Those black sails certainly are striking! And the pumpkins look good enough to eat

These chaps are preparing to fire the Noon Gun from the Citadel in Halifax, NS. This ritual is carried out daily, except Christmas and I made certain to be there at the right time of day during my visit to the city.



This photo is of the preparations because, despite being aware that the gun was about to be fired and despite bracing myself on the opposite wall, I jumped a mile when the cannon actually went off! Needless to say, the resulting photo isn't worth showing...

Hi gang! Been a while but I have a new camera to show off! I've enjoyed seeing everyone's photos. Here is a flower from a gum tree - it's really only quite little, less than 1cm across, I was trying out the macro thingy on the new camera.

Welcome back Copago. What pretty flowers. I dont think I have ever seen flowers on a gum tree before. See that is why FT is educational.

Nice photos Copago (good to see you posting ) and bhs63. Plant close-ups always look good when the focus is just right.

Below is a photo of Goring-by-Sea sea front (West Sussex). The photo was taken on the last warm day of summer. We didn't have a wealth of warm sunny days this year, so this one was much appreciated. We had a good day out with friends.

Here's a typical view of Golders Green, one of the only areas with blocks of flats I'd actually consider living in.

Hi Copago! It's great to see you again

Here's a view of the lower part of the old section of Quebec City, taken whilst riding up to the upper part in the "funiculaire" . It was a great way to get back up the hill (cliff!) to where my hotel was located, especially at the reasonable price of $1.75.

That is steep! I'd probably pay five times that much to avoid that hill!

The Highlands of Scotland have so many sights of natural beauty, some you find as they are well known and the roads take you there. Others like this are found by accident when taking a wrong turn. This is one of them Loch Carron, which is on the back road to Plockton.

Oh wow, fabulous pig! I collect pigs and have quite a few. BTW, how big is that pig? And will I be able to lift it?

LOL - if you know how to detach it from its buried concrete pedestal, it weighs about 70 pounds (fiberglass). He is a little over 6 feet tall.

It was part of a public art project a few years ago. This particular pig was done by one of the elementary schools. After the art project the pigs were auctioned off.

I can't believe that you have such a wonderful specimen such as that in your backyard and this is the first time we've seen it.
