Here the weather has been really mild for January - we've seen the tail-end of various storms and of course the tail-end of Christmas and the new year parties but as yet nothing really cold.
So here goes.
|The New Year's Party in Clare and Matthew's - generations of songs and tunes|
|I love the shadows thrown by this star |
we brought it home from Germany many years ago
and it's still a favourite Christmas decoration.
|Only a smattering of snow yet|
but doesn't Finn McCool look magnificent covered in a white blanket?
|Flo had a big birthday and one of her friends|
brought a long a mad selection of hats for us all to wear.
Here's Flo modelling one of them
|Tom modelling his lol|
|And I got the silly glasses too|
|The tailend of the American snow storms last week brought us howling winds|
This poor bird was really struggling
|All churned up - loved the light this day|
|Trying to capture the moon - this one at the end of the month|
|But finally got a passable shot of the stars and Orion's belt.|
The lights of Carlingford across the water are giving that lovely glow.
Flo's party looks a scream. Hope to see you next month.ReplyDelete
It was a great idea having loads of different hats ... here friend has been collecting them for years :)Delete
I've enjoyed your selection of photos for the scavenger hunt challenge, especially when I clicked onto them to enlarge. The last one of the night sky is awesome. The mountain covered with snow so beautiful and the name of the spray caused by the whipped up water on the sea so poetical. You look as if you had a lot of fun at the gatherings.ReplyDelete
HI Linda - I was so happy with that night sky one but haven't been able to repeat it since :( don't know what I did right lolDelete
Hi Fil - love your hats and the party atmosphere emanating from the blog ... the star is lovely - no wonder you decided to keep it. Wonderful shots of your landscape ... love the loch shots ...ReplyDelete
Kettles - interesting to know the interpretation ... I'd come across when I was writing about Coasts in the 2014 A-Z .. here Kettles were fish weirs ... language changes - always interest me ...
Cheers and enjoy February - you've lots going on ... take care - Hilary
Hi Hilary - Aren't language changes fascinating - I love that too xDelete
The hats are wonderful and what a good idea for injecting even more fun into a party :) The landscape photos are full of incredible atmosphere and it's always lovely to see where people are from and what they can see close to home! Have a great weekend - Special Teaching at Pempi’s PalaceReplyDelete
this challenge is lovely for getting a glimpse at people's environments - thank you for being so kind about these photos :)Delete
Beautiful photos. Your party looks like fun. Hope you continue to avoid the bad weather.ReplyDelete
Thanks Cait - it's so weird not being cold yet - I hope it's not been too bad up your way... At least there's been no flooding here. Enjoying your weekly photos too.Delete
