Bend it

Bend it
Kyleakin, Isle of Skye

I loved the way the bends and twists of this stretch of water were accentuated by its banks and the song 'Bend It' by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich came into my head.

A beautiful scene so well photographed. Ace composition and a fave for me. An inspired musical accompaniment. Not heard this classic track for very, very many moons :-) Like the video lots...especially the bunny outfits :-)) Thanks very much for posting to 'Sight and Sound', Carol. Wishing you a lovely weekend.

Thank you very much Roger. I am not sure what the bunny girls outfits were all about but the video and music took me back. I had kind of forgotten about the clothes with the holes cut out of the sides. Now that was style! Pure nostalgia. I wish you a happy weekend.

Just had to check out the video again for the clothes with holes cut out of the sides.....yes, style for sure :-))) Also, noticed the guy's multi-coloured trousers!! Reminds me that in those days I had a pair of pink trousers...I'm sure I must have been the height of fashion :-))) Have a lovely Sunday, Carol.

I am sure you looked very cool in them. I thought I looked pretty trendy in a 'cut out and sew' paper dress I bought and got my aunt to sew for me. It was bright yellow with a pink pattern. My dad took one look and refused to let me out in it in case it rained!! Have a good evening Roger

Good evening Ron. Yes it was really restful here. We were watching a heron in the water, from memory, which is just about visible if you enlarge the photo (and with good eyesight!) I didn't have a long lens on but took the shot anyway as I liked the view and the curves of the water. Have a lovely evening

I see the Heron near the center of picture and in the water. Beautiful!

Ecobird has replied to Jürgen
Many thanks Jurgen. Much appreciated. Funnily enough we did see a man with a dog in the water further downstream.. I think the dog was taking the man for a walk, - he kept stopping and waiting for the man to catch up. I hope you have a lovely evening

A beautiful view along the river and an excellent track from Dave and his pals. The only trouble is it makes me realise how old I am - I know all the words!
