These photos were taken on our New Year's day walk in the East Lothian countryside.
It was a beautiful day with blue skies,a light wind and temperature of 13C degrees
........... not unusual for this time of year.
Despite the fact that it's less than two weeks since the Winter Solstice,there's
a distinct whiff of Spring in the air.
From this windy hilltop we have a clear view over farmland to the Firth of Forth and Fife hills.
The mounds on the horizon (left) conceal the remains of a Roman encampment,dating from the time
of the Roman occupation of Britain.
Maddy - merging with the wind!
Crocuses in the Botanic Gardens,Edinburgh - late February.
Spring is hopefully only a short time away!
On the way home I collected some shells,with the intention of making an artwork.
The artwork "Mermaid Lights" is now completed and I've shown it ,along with the construction
process on my other blog Starry Universe ......HERE.
Thankyou for visiting.
