This morning we experienced bright, angled sunlight which provided useful photo opportunities in nearby Rouken Glen Park. As will be evident from the portfolio of images provided, the light conditions  provided special effects in form of watery reflections, shadows, illumination of end of season leaves and lighting of waterfalls.

Today, I visited the Willow Tea Rooms at 217 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.  The interior and facade were designed by Glasgow’s most famous architect/designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) whose key achievement was the design of places to be inhabited. The street name ‘Sauchiehall’  means ‘alley of the willows’ and throughout the rooms Mackintosh used the willow motif.

This afternoon I am posting a few images illustrating adverse weather conditions from my walk this morning around Rouken Glen in south Glasgow.
