I took these pictures at the Lochrin basin at the end of the union canal. The sun was just warm enough to melt the ice, but anything in the shade remained icy. Full size versions are available on Flickr


So I just happened to upload this picture on to my flickr pages in the early hours of the morning, not because of talk like a pirate day, but as part of my general sorting out of my photos taken over the Summer. However because of the pirate theme, it has made it's way onto the "Interesting" page on flickr!

We had stopped at Melrose Abbey on the way back from Katherine and Colin's wedding, and I took this picture while walking about on a fine sunny day.

**UPDATE2: **Thanks to comments on Flickr, the Latin above reads "memento mori" or "remember you are mortal", or something of that ilk? (someone else recons "Mei Entomo") anyone any ideas?

Sunset down under.

We made it out the office early enough on Saturday evening to catch the sun going down on the beach. This is the wooden rollercoaster at Luna Park.

Sunrise down under

Still jet lagged, I woke up ridiculously early at 5am, and walked into the office as the sun was rising

Spring has arrived

First Blossom Of Spring

We went on a cycle ride around town today in the Sunshine and Rachel spotted the blossoms on this tree. I definitely feel that spring is in the air, especially as we'll start to get more sunshine in the evenings when the clocks go forward tonight
