In order to break my silence of the last few days, I'll post a few photos today. The first two are from a weekend walk at the nearby Mill of Kintail. The third is of the river in town and was taken last week.
I called this first picture Ancient Guardian on my Flickr site. Both Cuppa and I noticed that it looked something a crocodile head when we walked past, but I think it looks more mythological in the photo. You might want to see this one larger. Just click on it, and it will open in a new window (as will the next two).
The next photo was taken not too far away from the previous one. It is Indian River that you see.
The original of the next photo is quite large. I usually downsize photos that I upload directly to Blogger, but I forgot this time. However, it is more effective viewed large. While this is more or less true for all photos, it is more than less true for this one (all in this post in fact) where I have tried to render a bit of painting effect. Anyway, as I said before it is of our local river, looking west (more or less).
