Forfar Loch

My first visit to the loch this year. I took these a couple of weeks ago. Literally the first time the weather's been bearable enough to make the venture.

 I thought these pics seemed to benefit from a bit of colour drainage.

Billy McKenzie

Came across this today and just had to share it. Ok, I know the vid quality is rubbish but the audio is relatively good. Good enough to allow Billy's unique and marvellous voice to shine through.
What a talent he was.

e.e. cummings



--e.e.cummings 1894-1962

Driving from Arbroath to Brechin this morning I stopped to take some tree pictures. The one above was my favourite and I faffed about with it and got two results which I quite liked. I got to thinking about a poem which would reflect the pictures and was toying with Sylvia Plath and William Carlos Williams 'Winter Trees'.
But I eventually plumped for e.e. cummings' 'l(a'. I know it's not Autumn, but I just think the words and pictures compliment each other.
I'd be interested to know what you think of the poem. Clever? Pretentious? Sad?.......
.......and wasn't ol' e.e. one cool dude?

I've neglected this blog recently. Two reasons really, firstly lack of motivation and secondly, crap weather. It's not been easy getting out and about with the camera this winter. The second excuse is growing in irrelevance with the longer days and slight increase in temperatures. So I suppose I better address the first one.
What motivates the blogger?....................

Answers in the comments section please............Cos I don't have any at the moment.
