Could have worked that out, the blasted boat sitting right in the middle of the picture doesn't help

Don't know - it was a passing stranger. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will come along to assist.

It's not very seasonal - there's no snow on the tops or blackened heather in the background.

But altogether a lovely shot. When I'm not at work I'll re-set the background on the home computer.

Only my mobile phone, I'm afraid.

Friday, 5th was one of the warmer days if in the sun.

We were on board in Kip Marina over the Easter weekend and woke to a thick layer of ice around the boat. ( A burn runs through the marina )

A thinner layer of ice on Wed morning.

We spent Fri, Sat, Tues, Thurs, Sat nights on board in Kip. Wed night in Holy Loch Marina. Fri night in Port Bannatyne Marina. The electric fan heater saw good use.
