A very belated hello and apology
Dear ipernity friends,
I received a lovely message from Xata asking if Rabbit and I were ok, as we have not been on ipernity for many months. I'm sorry if anyone has missed us or been worried. In May I went off on a long long trip in my motorhome, for…
I'm still here!
Apologies for our long absence! Everything is ok, we have just been busy.
In less than three weeks time, Rabbit and his photographer are going for a very long trip in the motorhome - three and a half months around the west and north coasts of Scotland…
Happy Rabbit and Fox Fence Friday!
We love this fence at the RSPB nature reserve at Loch Leven.
And through one of the decorative holes cut in the fence, we spotted three little egrets.
HFF and have a good weekend to all - sorry we've not been around much lately.
Rabbit poses in front of the calendar which hangs on our kitchen wall. Amazingly, January shows a picture of Rabbit in his red jumper!
Full moon on the Liffey
A flying visit to Dublin. Only had the baby camera with me, but I was thrilled to see the full moon rising, prior to her eclipse several hours later, over the Liffey. I only noticed the reflections of the people on the Ha'penny bridge later.
Scurdie Ness lighthouse, near Montrose
One of the many Stevenson lighthouses (this one was built by David and Thomas), opened in 1870. The elegant tower is 39 metres high.
It was a beautifully calm day, and very mild for the end of December. I liked how the little clouds were suggestive o…
The little village of St Cyrus perches above a huge beach, now a nature reserve. Traditional salmon fishing using nets was carried out on the beach for many years, and there are several old stone built ice houses which were used for keeping the salmon ch…
Merry Christmas 2018
Wishing all my ipernity friends a very merry Christmas and festive season.
Thank you for your wonderful photos and kind comments throughout the year.
With love from Rabbit xxx
Winter Solstice 2018 (things can only get better...?)
It was a grey, damp day today, the winter solstice, but the sun did manage to come out for a few fleeting minutes on our walk from Charlestown to Limekilns. Happy Solstice to all our ipernity friends. From now on the days get longer and brighter. Let'…
Hole in the wall
A Happy hole-in-the-wall Fence Friday to all!
Taken during a gloriously sunny long walk from Cockenzie to Gullane, mostly on the shore. Days like this are a particular treat in November.
Suspended in time
November sun setting behind the Queensferry Crossing, the new bridge over the Forth. The criss-crossed lines are the cables of this elegant cable-stayed suspension bridge, and the block on the right hand side is a lorry crossing the bridge. The perspex…
Travelling slowly into the light (and a picture for Pam)
Tanker making its slow way down the Forth and into the north sea, on a chilly but sunny November afternoon. The bridge is the new Queensferry Crossing. I took the photo from the Forth Road Bridge - the original road crossing over the Forth which was rep…

The names of the 134,712 men and women listed in the Scottish National War Memorial Roll of Honour are currently (Sunday 11th November) being projected onto the wall of the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, with each name appearing on the wall for about 1…
In October 1936, people in the east end of London prevented a march by fascists, in the 'Battle of Cable Street'. Trade unionists, Irish dockers and labourers, communists, Labour Party members and people from the Jewish community joined together to oppo…
Look at those muscley arms!
Culross fence and flowers
Fence, flowers, Rabbit.... HFF and have a great weekend, everyone. What a relief to have ipernity working again - thank you to the maintenance team!
Another from Dundee - the Discovery Centre in the background, the masts of the RRS Discovery. and reflections in the 'moat' around the new V&A design museum.
The new V&A and RSS Discovery on Dundee waterfront
The brand new V&A design museum just a few weeks after its official opening, looking splendid in the autumn sunshine. Next to the gallery is the RSS Discovery, the ship which took Scott and Shackleton to Antarctica. The shadows on the side of the museu…
