Tenere at the Mull of Galloway

It was a great day to be out on the Ten and I could just see the mountains on the Isle of Man poking out through the sea mist as I approached the Mull of Galloway —

Looking back over Luce Bay was easy on the eyes as well —

If you ignore the geezer who just walked into the shot —

Ireland was there to the west butĀ I have yet to master the art of taking photos into the glare of the sun with this camera soĀ I took the easy shot of the lighthouse instead —

Tenere takes a short gallop

It’s been a busy period recently. Having a young dog to look after isn’t like having a motorbike that you can switch on and off as you please. So – whenĀ I had a few hours to myself this afternoon I went for a gallop on the Tenere.

First stop was the Smithy tearoom in New Galloway for tea and a scone by the stream —

Then it was offski down the Castle Douglas road before turning for homeĀ after Crossford. It’s a great rideĀ with quick bends. TheĀ roadside isĀ full of blossom of all description to the left and crackin views across Loch Ken to the right. There were so many photo opportunities but I was enjoying the ride so much I didn’t stop for one ——

until I spotted these swans in a little pond on their own —

There was one adult and five cygnets —

Isn’t nature wonderful —
