A trip to Scotland last week to visit family was, I hoped, going to result in a lot of dramatic, picturesque photos of the rugged landscape, the bracken covered hills and the smooth waters of the lochs which I could use in my blog, but the harsh reality was that the weather was mainly miserable – very windy, or very wet, or sometimes both of those. It was very disappointing, but not really unusual I suppose (it can rain for weeks without end) so why I was expecting beautiful sunshine I have no idea. I only managed to take a few photos at the weekend, and I think they capture it very well.
On Sunday, when it was time to travel home again the sun shone, of course. There was no time to take photos of the countryside, so here are a couple of views of Glasgow airport. The rainbow in the second picture proves that it was still raining somewhere!
