Changing My Point of View: A Picture Story

I’ve acknowledged that I’m guilty of what I accuse others of: thinking my point of view is the correct one or the only one even.

The snow started in earnest this week. It gave me an idea for a picture post.  I like what HSBC (bank) do with their marketing where they use pictures to show difference perspectives so you could say I “borrowed” their idea on this blog post.

Please excuse me as I figure out whether “snow” is beautiful or dangerous…

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Friends of ours went strawberry picking in Montrose, near Aberdeen in Scotland. They gave us this amazing, juicy collection of strawberries from the picking. I think it’s a great representation of the growth of this gorgeously red fruit.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

Whoooa, I love the sunset! I’m not getting much sunshine in Scotland at the moment so that makes my obsession with the fiery ball slightly worse. I can’t complain too much though. I just returned from Majorca on holiday – there was sun there. Last week, it was snowing in Aberdeen where I live. Fortunately, the sun still sets in the snow like in this picture of the North Pole.

The sun setting over the beach is absolutely stunning. The reds, oranges and yellows – glorious!

Oh, this boat sailing on the sea in the sunset makes my heart skip a beat. Talk about the deep blue sea. How could I ever remain blue with such a phenomenal view?

At this point, I’d be glad just to see the sun. Oh there it is. Ahhh :-).
