Ferns and palm trees in the Kibble Palace

I took this picture inside Kibble palace, a world-famous glass-house in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens, back in 1993. When I revisited the botanical gardens in 2005, this attraction was closed for restoration.
One more reason to return to Glasgow some time later and see what this great building looks like now!

Inverness

St Andrews Cathedral in Inverness, viewed from the bridge.
Inverness is often called the “capital of the highlands” and is indeed very strategically situated if you want to explore the heart of Scotland.
The river you see on the picture is the Ness.

Fields at Arbroath, Scotland

Filed under: — lbobke @ 9:07 pm

Arbroath Fields
Somewhere between Dundee and Aberdeen, there is the small town of Arbroath.
This place is famous for its cliffs where you van watch colonies of puffins at the right time of year.
Even when there are no puffins, the views are breathtaking and walking a bit inland, you’ll see fields, cliffs and water.

Rainbow in the Cairngorms

Rainbow in the Cairngorms (Cairngorm National Park, near Aviemore, Scotland UK)

A rainbow appears over the forests near Loch Morlich in the Cairngorms (Cairngorm National Park, near Aviemore, Scotland UK).
I slightly enhanced the colours using a circular polarizing filter. Depending on the position of such a filter, it will either enhance the colours - or even eliminate the rainbow effect!
(A polarizer actually consists of two glass filters that are rotated against each other and is very useful for eliminating or enhancing all sorts of reflections)
