Mistle thrush

Grabbed this shot of a thrush. We were up around Loch Naver. Dunno if it’s a newt in its gob, but whatever it is, it has legs! Nice dinner for the chickies I suppose, not so good for the newt lol. I think it’s a mistle thrush. Can anyone confirm that?

Loch Calder

Here’s where the adventure took us today on the prowl for new brochs. Loch Calder in Caithness. Light was a bit stark, so I took the image into Topaz Impression and had some fun with it.

Raining

Even when it’s raining, Brora beach is beautiful. When the colours are subdued and it’s overcast and raining, try black and white. It can work really well.

Brora beach is never the same. It’s such a beautiful place to walk, and it’s only a couple of hundred yards from my door. Amazing what we take for granted in life sometimes.
