Newburgh North Fife January 26th 2013

Newburgh North Fife yesterday. The snow is going to be replaced with lots of rain and sure enough today the Barony road was awash, like a shallow river, inches deep in places. Such are increasingly extreme weather conditions being experienced world wide. This is small beer, tiny, compared to many places. In Australia recently, fires everywhere, now floods, cyclones, In America, droughts, failing harvests, it goes on and on. It's the way it is.

Higham North Fife, a very slow thaw giving rise to fog conditions where snow covered ground and sky blend revealing these dreamlike images.

Snow North Fife January 23rd

Woods above Balhelvie Farm North Fife, they lie just to the East of my home, the snow adds a very different dimension highlighting the trees in the manner of a drawing. Snow changes the appearance of everything.
Thorny Berberis with snow, of course.

R.A.F Typhoons North Fife

A pair of R.A.F. Typhoons passing overhead returning to base at Royal Air Force Leuchars. The Station is primarily responsible for maintaining Quick Reaction Alert (Interceptor) North, providing crews and aircraft at high states of readiness 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to police UK airspace and to intercept unidentified aircraft. This pair almost touching were the first back after a jolly in the highlands this morning, others drifted back one at a time. Noisily in misty snow shower conditions.

Luthrie and Creich church North Fife.

Luthrie, I just love this stand of Scots pine on the horizon, falling snow depicts it differently. The roads are passable with care, oh what fun.

Newburgh North Fife Jan 19th 2013

Geese North Fife yesterday, on the move looking for forage, given the snowy weather I wish them well.
Compared to England we're getting off lightly with the snow, a few inches but then another shower comes across.
14 minuets later I get to the studio in the Steeple building and the sun is shining. Yippee.

New Years Day North Fife

At this time of the year the "I Ching" (book of changes)recommends that the superior man stays indoors for rest and recuperation, how wise. The ground environment lies dormant, vegetation has died back, roots gathering nutrients for the fresh new growth in the spring. Having over done it last year, my body screams out for rest, going outside I still enjoy the ever changing skies over the River Tay in North Fife.
At least 5000 years old, the I Ching is a book of oracles containing the whole of human experience. Used for divination, it is a method of exploring the unconscious; through the symbolism of its hexagrams we are guided towards the solution of difficult problems and life situations. It can also be read as a book of wisdom revealing the laws of life to which we must all attune ourselves if we are to live in peace and harmony. I have consulted it for more than 40 years, it puts a different spin on life events and can lead to acceptable insight and understanding. A good aspiration. Should you seek understanding then you could look and buy here. .I Ching or Book of Changes (Arkana)
New Years Day North Fife.
A few minutes later the sky takes on a deeper hue. All change, January 3rd and it's grey skies over North Fife.
Time to retreat indoors and rest, Happy, healthy and prosperous New year to you.
