Paul, this scene makes me realize how much I've been connected in my mind with all of what's British. I shall never set foot on the Isles, but love everything about films, documentaries, literature that describe people and landscapes.

A very inviting foto, wish I could be there.

Hi Doerthe. I'm delighted you are first to comment on this photo. Don't tell anyone but I was out on business when I spotted this scene and had to stop and "steal" it. I'm sad you will never get to the Isles, I don't know the reason but you deserve to get the opportunity if you love so much of here. I hope maybe one day you will get the chance. This is a beautifully preserved (and still inhabited) Castle on the Northumberland Coast beside one of the most magnificent beaches around.

Best wishes. Paul

Paul, the reason why I will probably never be able to visit the Isles, is that if we can come up with the money to travel, it will be to go back home, which is northern Germany, Hamburg, Berlin. I still have family there. We were there this past September and had a wonderful time. Also, my husband is 81 years old and getting to frail to travel much anymore.

But, I can sustain my imagination with beautiful photos like yours, so keep them coming. I can live through your experiences in color!

Greetings, Doerthe

Doerthe. I sincerely hope that you and your husband get the opportunity to get home and see your family. I'll keep the photos coming and hope you will allow me the pleasure of "visiting" through your gallery too. Best wishes, Paul.

Hi, Paul, I enjoy very much to have a connection with you, so thanks a lot for your beautiful photos. I put you in the list of friends, so I can find you easier.

Greetings, Doerthe

Thank you Doerthe. I have returned the thought and added you also. I have uploaded some more pictures of Scotland if you would like to visit. My wife and I had a trip to Edinburgh on Sunday and climbed Arthur's seat, so there are a few shots looking over the city. The panorama takes a while to load but I think you may enjoy it. Best wishes, Paul.

Thanks, Paul, I really appreciate your input about new photos and your trip.

I made contact also with Grant through your comments, and found out that he lives in Edinburgh, very interesting, two Scots in two days, great fun!!

Cheers, Doerthe

Hi Paul, You must have been bewitched to stop here when you were out on business, but I can well understand it. It is simply beautiful. Have a good weekend, Lesley

I was just drawn to the view Lesley. I used to drive up and down this road quite often. I guess it was the colour of the flowers that really caught my eye. I'm glad I took the couple of minutes though, these things need to be done. Paul.
