Scottish Reflections

Today, more photos of a recent trip to Scotland - this time taken on and around a favourite foot bridge at Cambus O'May over the River Dee near Ballater in Aberdeenshire - and exploring the idea of reflections.

First of all, my husband leaning on the bridge and looking up river, reflecting, perhaps, on the thought that he has been coming to this beautiful valley for almost 60 years.


The bridge and its reflections looking down river towards Aboyne ...


...and looking from the other direction through birch branches covered in lichen ...


... and looking directly down from the bridge at the river bank, darkly reflected in the peat coloured water ...



To finish, two photos of dippers perched on rocks. We saw four of these delightful birds at the same time going about their business and watched them for almost half an hour, but they weren't very willing photographic subjects. Even with a zoom lens that perfect shot was elusive ...

    1. Thank you, Debbie. We love Scotland so much and it is always a pleasure to visit ... though I think I'm in danger of boring everyone rigid with the hundred of photos I take!
