Coffee at the Kelpies — Fan Of… #145

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking, “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how-to).

First off, thank you so much for all the birtdays wishes from you guys ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

This week’s Fan Of.. is Coffee at the Kelpies. With some time off over my birthday, my wife & I were able to get out on our first longish ride of the year (50km). Although we’ve been out on our bikes with the trailer constantly over the winter, to go shopping & run errands, this was our first chance to really get out. Over my whole time off we had strong to gale force winds & horizontal rain for much of it; we did, however, get a break last Monday & so headed to one of our favourite places, the Kelpies.

A Big Change in 2021 — Lens-Artists Challenge #180, Sunday Stills and CFFC.

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Tina: Favourite images of 2021, Terri’s Sunday Stills & Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.

These first shots are not just some of my favourites for 2021, but of all time. I enjoyed this session in particular because I arrived at Fannyside Lochs at sunrise & the conditions I found were as I expected. I felt I was able to get my eye in quickly, & of course, Lensy made an appearance.

…and so to the big change mentioned in the title; the arrival of our e-bikes. My wife (Susan) & I, have been car-free for nearly 10 years now & pre-covid would get around on public transport. Once covid came along, we decided public transport was a risk too far, so any travelling was done on foot. All this changed in May when our bikes, Stormy & Kali arrived & we were once again mobile. This photo & the new found sense of freedom that it represents, is our favourite of the year.
