I won’t be on here for a bit (not that many will notice!), because we are heading to Colorado. Just. For. Grins. The above photo was taken several years ago when we drove cross country to Nevada. We were spinning through the Rocky Mountains in November and snow was on the ground from West Virginia all the way to Nevada. I wasn’t thrilled about going cross country BUT with a deal that we wouldn’t drive 10 hours a day AND we would stop often and walk AND we would stop at every state line visitor center….I agreed. The eastern side of the country was more boring to be because I’d seen it already many, many times. But Kansas on I was in love! Driving is the way to go for sure as far as sight-seeing, but for efficiency’s sake we are flying this time and seeing whatever we please. I’ll be back.
Orkney Island Stones (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
I’ve returned from the land of Ents, fairies and elves.
I understand there are also trolls, mermaids and various monsters of great legend in its mountains and lochs.
Ancient cobblestones beneath my feet
I toured castles and cathedrals,
a 5,000+ year settlement,
circles of standing stone,
falconry and sheep herding,
rode ferries to isles,
and back again,
sipped decadent Orkney ales
and touched peat from a bog.
Nearly 4,000 photos must be culled through,
and most importantly,
Scotland is nothing short of magical.
I love Scotland.
I knew I would.
Scotland is an incredibly GREEN country and its people are warm and friendly.
Time to get back to work but
This is my first WordPress Blog post for The Giraffe Head Tree. My WordPress blog will comprise of nature photography, conservation and preservation photography. Today, I begin to learn this new format in preparation for a new project I’ll be participating in down the road. That news will come later. But today……..I’m playing.
