And Moor

This lovely villager, Murdo Murray kindly agreed that I could take his picture. I found him loading the tractor with hard won peats for the home fire. This was out on the Moor on a track that for some reason I had not ventured before and it is lovely. I mean, really lovely.

More Moor

I love these peat tracks, their shape and feel. The colour and the wildlife around them.

I took the snap with a Hassie and 50mm lens.

The Moor

This a track onto the moor by the village . We go up here to cut peats.
Tis so lovely out here but possibly to be despoiled by a large collection of Huge Wind Turbines.

forgive me

It's Toots.
He is displaying his usual plumage - the way he does when  camera is pointed in his direction. It's a photographer thing I'm told.

The old Kiev4a with a Jupiter 8m but I have not taken it on holiday. Yes, we are away for a few days. Me with camera too.

We have taken to enjoying the lovely landscapes out by our peat bank whilst it is still there. There's plans afoot to despoil the area with 14 huge wind turbines if certain people get their way. :-(
