Hi Mira. It's a stone, and the sea around it is freezing. Curling is a game played in Scotland and other places of course. One plays on ice, the stones are made of granite, and it can be a really exciting spectator sport if Scotland are winning! Look up on the Internet to see what curling stones look like' Greetings, Amelia
oh what have we got here then? and I was beginning to think you meant curling tongs! My fault for starting at the highest apge and working my way backwards ~ BUT ~ I found some lovely shots ~ I'll to search again sometime soon :)
Thanks for this lovely comment Nick. Don't scrutinise too closely. I'm glad you found the curling stone though. A bit out of focus as usual with me!
and I thought it was ice ~ it does look as thought it was slid into position and where is its handle I wonder? Feeling any better yet?
Whoops Mira's listening in!
this is actually an amazing shot when you blow it right up ~ the ice detail is brilliant ~ and the little moss stuff growing on the top of the stone (Or maybe polar bear poo) ~ great shot Amelia
are you an admira of these sort of shots?
(Apologies to Mira of course :)
Mira is always so very good with her advice and encouragement Nick. She thinks I am too self deprecating, and continually tells me not to point out the flaws. :)
Sorry Amelia, we are off to France ~ Chocolat beckons ~ please come with us and escape all this ice :)
But I have to say - the pixels make it seem like a lump of moss or even polar bear poo - but it is just part of the stone. I'm glad it isn't anything to do with polar bears in fact. I quite often go walking here on my own. It's the first time I have looked at this in enlargement.
Greetings to Mira and Nick**.
That mossy pixel problem ~ you need to rake it out more!
The chocolateria is in Auxerre near to the church I show on page 2 of my gallery ~ quite a trot for some choccy. Now I have a glass of wine for medical purposes ;)
