It's great to have a wife that will pick up your bow and camera case you left at the last target as you wandered off trying out your new camera

K-1 II & DFA*70-200

The lady is awesome.

Iron age Brochs (fortified housing) at Glen Beag in Scotland, over 2000 years old. All with the 15-30.







And the sun returned in time for sunset last night, 24-70:

Mallee Boy and Tony. I will have you know, I am proud to look like I do. You may look younger and cuter Tony but I still get to eat as many bananas as you. One day, you will get to be big and silver like me. Grant, I know you would like to sit around like me and have a scratch now and then. Dusty told me. Brother Tony sent me a picture of you watching motor cross. Its a beauty.

Beautiful photos...I particularly like the 2nd one..of the interior of that 2000 year old abode. Amazing building ability, craftsmanship by these builders of yore ....your photo...the angle, lighting, composition...it could be in a brochure. I'm going to have to check out the history of these buildings..wasn't aware of them till your photos.

+1 on those comments. Really interesting structures. Makes you wonder about social conditions at the time. One suspects the fortification was protection against small bands of marauders as they would be futile against an organized army. Must have been dreadful to live where there is little or no organized protection akin to a police force or even a local sheriff, or someone or group that served such a function.

Bluets, my wife's favorite early Spring flower. They vary from a beautiful fairly intense blue as in your pictures to almost white and prefer acid soil. AKA: "piss in bed" because of a yellow center and either white for a bleached sheet, or blue for a sheet washed with "bluing." We have some blooming in the back at the moment, far fewer than once grew there (why have they died our? no idea). Ours are near-white.

Thank you, that's very kind. The brochs are absolutely awesome. I went along to visit not really knowing what to expect, since they are not covered well online, but they were fascinating. And yes - they are from the iron age - they are thought to have been used to defend the settlement against marauders and visitors looking to loot and pillage!

Here's three more views of the brochs: Dun Troddan in 15-30 Pano:



Dun Telve view 24-70, and 15-30 respectively:





As you can see, the weather sealing was worth every penny here!

Anyone wondering what happened to the rest of the broch structures, it is thought that the stones were reused for other local buildings, including the 18th century 'Bernera Barracks' nearby (Again, 24-70, then the last two 15-30):







John

Newly acquired Soligor MC 100/2 wide open ... this is an OM mount lens that I have made a quick adapter via a very short set of Chinese macro tubes. I may "Rio Rico" modify this lens to PK ... but not just yet. It needs a minor clean, too.

First real outing this afternoon about town while I was waiting for Charlotte to finish her music classes ... there's no school on Wednesday afternoons in France.
