This morning I took advantage of the (somewhat unusual) bright sunlight to obtain images of the illuminated trees, leaves and vegetation which illustrate the progressive transformation to the threshold of winter. Location was Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow, Scotland.

This evening I am reporting on a hike over a route which covered about seven miles, passing between Drumfrochar and Wemyss Bay, in West of Scotland. Some of the higher elevations in the region reach about fifteen hundred feet. This location is bordered by the River Clyde where it is known as the Firth of Clyde.

Today, Scotland was hit by Storm Ali entailing heavy rain and winds in range 65-75mph. Scheduled trip to Stirling Castle for guests off a visiting cruise ship had to be cancelled and the ship itself became a casualty of the storm when it was forced from its mooring on the River Clyde. Instead, I toured Rouken Glen Park on foot and took photographs of the wind damage.,
