Scottish Referendum North Fife

Tonight I for one and many millions know that to vote YES is the best thing since sliced bread in the referendum.What a chance to be free of the vested punitive interested status quo, a sense of oppression, historic and present under  Westminster rule. Who in their right mind would vote for more of the same. An opportunity for grass roots politics to organically emerge and grow into a new order of equality, fairness, shared prosperity, openness, to be fulfilled and happy.

Straw bales with something to say, a tremendous energy abounds just about everywhere, in the villages, towns, cities, the islands, highlands & lowlands. There are signs/flags in fields, gardens, hanging out of windows, all over. A momentous time that is already shaking things up.A new order which ever way the vote goes. A catalyst for change for the better all over the UK or K. Ken?
Friday, we will all know.

Sunflower North Fife

Sunflowers are one of my favourites, late flowering, are a rich source of nectar for insects, provide oil and seed for human consumption. I have fond memories of seeing fields in France, countless hectares of them, like being in floral heaven.

Here visited by a hover fly.
In the few minutes of taking these shots bumble bees were present too. Earlier blooms are now fully developed, the seeds of which provide us with additions to breads and salads. Easier to go to the supermarket for the oil.

The Moon North Fife

Almost full moon lurking behind the cloud on the 8th September.

An explosion of light in the encircling gloom.
Passing cloud, ever changing but to me more than anything illustrates the serious limitations of my digital camera. I know that film would have been much better, such is change.

Isle of Mull Inner Hebrides

Oban bound from Mull. The Isle of Mull — or simply Mull — is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland. A wonderful place as are all of the Scottish Islands. All are surrounded by clear crystal waters...full of abundant life.

Jelly fish, Holy Isle of Aran. Between are several fish farms producing Salmon.
On land heather flourishes.
And all amongst the blooming heather. Will ye ....
Drystone wall Mull, or more correctly a wet stone wall given the normal weather.
If you're lucky you just might be serenaded by Yvonne Macleod an inspirational accordion player, much loved.

Himalayan Balsam North Fife

Himalayan Balsam North Fife. This stand has now been cleared as the riverside to the West of Newburgh has been cleared being part of Fife Coastal Path. Regarded as an invasive weed, it still has attractive qualities.
