Had a lovely wander about Rouken Glen Park yesterday with friends. First time I’ve been to the park since I was about 6 or 7 years old! Some lovely views from the the golf course out across the Clyde valley, with the Kennishead flats in the middle distance and the west end of the Campsie Fells beyond that. More pictures of Rouken Glen to follow.
Last weekend me and my partner (also an academic, and a much better one that I) attended a writing retreat in Gartmore Village near Aberfoyle in the Trossachs. Most of the weekend was spent writing with the rest of the group, which was very productive, but I did manage to get a few pictures of the beautiful surroundings while I was there, despite the rubbish weather. This picture was taken from the east end of Loch Ard looking west towards the snow capped Ben Lomond in the distance. I’ll be taking a trip back here when the weather improves (and importantly it starts getting dark a bit later that 4pm) as it is a photographers paradise of beautiful woods, lochs and quiet little villages.
