Here's was me hoping to get through the winter bug-free too. Bugs had other ideas though. And, not feeling the urge to grab a camera and take an instagram style snapshot of various overpriced sugary medicinal products, thought I'd rake through the archives instead and find something a bit more cheery.
This was taken late one February afternoon last year. I'd planned a trek down to the old Alloa Swing Bridge as it's a bit easier to access at this time of year. The tide was on the turn and the water was still and reflecting the remaining bridge supports perfectly. I already had some nice shots on the card when the sky started to glow a gentle orange, then, over the course of the next twenty minutes, explode into a riot of red, pink and purple. Even the Ochil Hills over on the other side of the River Forth took on an unearthly hue. Fantastic it was. Happy I was.
One from the iBri archives today. And probably tomorrow too...
