MOONdays


The tiny crack in the cloud shows how bright this moon was back in May. Interesting gilding effect from the vapour, though it prevented proper focus.

The Thames rowers were in sync when I lined up the shot... now I just like this for the symmetry of the far wall.

Last week, on Saturday, it was towards the hills... this week, from the same spot, we look at the 'Kyles', the narrow, rip-tide waterways which separate mainland Scotland from the Isle of Bute. Sunshine on the water, just like in the postcards.
