Make pictures while the sun shines.

Hasn't the weather of the last few days been stunning?

So gorgeous was it, yesterday, that having the day pretty much to myself, I decided to take a walk in one of my favourite corners of West Lothian, Beecraigs Country Park.

I got there pretty early and left my motor alongside three others which were already there in the Balvormie Car Park. I then got my gear together - stripping most of the extra lenses and stuff out of my backpack until I was left with the bare minimum of kit and a manageable weight to hump through the forest in the scorching heat.

Hot, sunny weather doesn't really produce the best light for photography, but it does make you feel good and I enjoyed an excellent stroll out through the network of paths and bridleways which snake through the natural forest on the south side of the park.

I was out for four hours and true to form these days, returned to a baking hot car with just one image which I liked enough to keep. Poor beer for the photographer, but such a nice day to air your spirit.
