This is the River Clyde in Glasgow. The bridge is the one that can be seen in the background on the BBC Reporting Scotland News. The shot was taken from the BBC Centre.
From my hiking trip to Scotland in Summer 2013... It was such a great time and a great experience!
Izz and Dad (me) slipped away after the Christmas meal down to the beach. Conditions were perfect in the last of the winter light. For once I had my camera with a memory card and battery, a wide angle lense and Izzy was up for getting airborne !
Low tide meant wet mirror like sand and we almost had the beach to ourselves! An afternoon to remember!

I've been really busy at work and today is the first day off I've had for weeks, so I was up early and out taking photos. It was well worth it as the cloud you can see in the distance soon spread over.
The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Commonly known as the Houses of Parliament after its tenants, the Palace lies on the Middlesex bank of the River Thames in the City of Westminster, in central London. Its name, which derives from the neighbouring Westminster Abbey, may refer to either of two structures: the Old Palace, a medieval building complex that was destroyed by fire in 1834, and its replacement New Palace that stands today. For ceremonial purposes, the palace retains its original style and status as a royal residence.
The Palace is one of the centres of political life in the United Kingdom; "Westminster" has become a metonym for the UK Parliament, and the Westminster system of government has taken its name after it. The Elizabeth Tower, in particular, which is often referred to by the name of its main bell, "Big Ben", is an iconic landmark of London and the United Kingdom in general, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city and an emblem of parliamentary democracy.
The Palace of Westminster has been a Grade I listed building since 1970 and part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

We spent a few days over Christmas staying with Granny and Granddad in Pembrokeshire.
Photographically the weather was rather hit and miss, but the forecast was perfect for Christmas Day - sunny with clouds!
Izzy and I cunningly escaped the post meal clearing up by going to the beach. But the weak winter sun was sinking fast so we didn't have time to waste.
Izzy has a mercurial and capricious nature as far as posing for photos goes. However on this occaision with a near empty beach at low tide, great weather and Izzy in a good mood, Neptune and Saturn were in conjunction and I was really pleased with the way the shots came out!

This is my golden retriever, Copper. We named him this as he was a lovely copper colour as a puppy. Now that he is getting on a bit we should perhaps re-name him "Grey".
He is great dog though and stood patiently on this bridge while I got set up and started walking and wagging his tail on command
