Butchers shop versus 'the light'

I couldn't help but notice, last weekend over in Torridon, that Gail was taking rather a lot of photographs and most of them did not include me.

In response to my quizzical (and slightly offended) look, she said this:

"Oh but Bertie isn't it all so magical? The snow on the mountain tops and rich late autumn colours aglow in our ever changing gentle northern light."

All well and good, I thought, but what about material for my blog?

And then I reminded her of the fine photo she had taken en route to Torridon, and that magical places come in many different guises…


  1. They need constant reminding, don't they!

  2. Lovely photos (especially the 4th one) but I think Gail missed the chance to show both light and the butcher's shop in one memorable image. She should have shown a picture of you running into the shop to sample the butcher's products at the speed of Torridon light!

  3. Well Bertie we agree with you, you outside the butcher shop is by far the best picture. Humans are so odd

  4. Oh mom is all about vistas and OMDs that is one gorgeous vista. W O W!!! Your fall colors are amazing with the sun on them.
    As for me, Madi, I love meat and would have spent a day waiting at the butcher's door with my handsome Bertie!!
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  5. Yup...and you INSIDE the butcher's shop would be even better!

  6. We dogs vote with you for the butcher shop. We think we could make the people happier if they built it in a mountain with snow! Lee and Phod

  7. Bertie,
    Gail had a good reason for not taking pictures of you (no offence Bertie, you're still a handsome wee doggie) because Torridon looked amazing! Oh, I wish I could have been there, I'm sure you had great fun crunching through leaves on your walk! But hey, I can see magical really does come in all shapes and sizes. Did you make Gail stop the car so you could get a whiff at the door of the butcher?

  8. Although Gail DOES take some GORGEOUS Pictures of some Beautiful SCENERY.... that Last picture is MUCH MORE.... TASTEful. Just sayin.

    OMD that looks awesome. As do you of course, dear Bertie, but have to admit I am a bit with Gail on this one... Still a job as guardian of the game might be a good posting for you!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. Yep, it's your blog Bertie, but we gotta go Ohhh and Ahhhh looking at those wonderful fall pictures of your country!
