It’s still raining almost every day here in Dumfries, but I braved the outdoors for a photowalk during a brief spell of dry weather last week (it only lasted about 20 minutes, then I had to dash back home). I was looking for soft muted colours of Scottish winter. Nature and life were everywhere I pointed my camera – sturdy moss growing on hedge along Glencaple Road, powdery fungi blisters on the stone and determined baby weeds sprouching in the cracks of a stone wall.
Here at Glenholm Place the still naked tree sprigs was readying their buds for spring. Some fruit and berries, left unnoticed by birds, graced the brunches. I was amazed how many brave plants dared flowering in February.
Below are some images I took on my imprompu photowalk.
