Another lovely picture of Ailsa Craig today, taken by Brian Johnstone. This one is called (appropriately) “chip off the old block”.
“May every sunrise
bring you hope.
May every sunset
bring you peace”
I love this photo of Ailsa Craig – it is called “haar” and was taken by Brian Johnston. The effect is so calm, so tranquil. Just looking at it makes me relax.
Only those who have lived on the East Coast of Scotland really appreciate haar. How it rolls in from the sea, turning a warm sunny day cold and colourless in an instant.
Although this photo is anything but colourless – maybe it’s the lighter touch of West Coast haar and sunshine 😄

Beautiful picture, looking towards Arran from West Kilbride, by Peter Watkins (from Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook).
See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose;
Seeds so long in darkness sleeping
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices;
Fields and garlands hail the spring;
Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices
While the wild birds build and sing.
Great picture and sentiments from One Fit Widow on Facebook – an amazing woman who was widowed at a young age and now helps other people get their lives back on track after bereavement. Her main approach is helping people through activity and fitness, and she has much to say from her own experience of loss that others in similar situations will find helpful :
Was catching up with some blogs I follow, and this image by Dave Perry caught my eye (from Visual Theology). He has posted some images under a series title of “Seeing the Unseen” – the kind of things we might miss when we spend our days rushing around with our eyes on focussed on the screens of our smartphones!
Here Dave sees “a heart …revealed by the pattern of peeling paint on the side of a prefabricated building used as an outdoor store. The shape is unmistakeable and the moment of recognition truly delightful”.
