stopmotion alps

Stopmotion alps with landing into Edinburgh, playing cat and mouse with the air stewards as i am supposed at this point to have turned off all my electronic equipment…It’s a camera for gods sake, what is the problem?!!!!

Not the greatest visibility today, the mountains were playing hide and seek with the clouds, with only the highest peaks visible…

mountains and sunshine…

One thing that’s good about the winter in Biella is that even though it’s bloomin’ freezing, the sun does SHINE! Not so much the case in invernal Edinburgh…

…and the other good thing is the mountains that are present at every turn…

…another great thing is when a door that is usually close is suddenly left open and you get a wee glimpse of what lies inside…

the space in between…

…the space between Biella and Milan, the train journey punctuates my life in italy, the ever changing landscape of rice fields (risaie) is winter barren and white with frost and snow…

travel update…

…i interrupt this series of archival salone posts to celebrate the fact that i finally made it onto my plane…and we were not alone up there…

Crazy cloud formations towards the end of the alps…incidentally, i posted this photo on my Blipfoto account and this was one of the comments i got:

In shipping we call this ‘a near miss’ regardless if you use the zoom function. The relative speed should have been in the +1600 km/hr region when he was heading into opposite direction. A remarkably shot. Can’t imagine NCA will be proud.  ~ GERT

I was too busy fumbling with my camera to worry about stuff like that…but i did think it was a bit close!

I did not tamper with the colour here, the sky was crazy blue…and no ash in sight.

Chasing the moon, which was odd as it was 2.20 in the afternoon.

Winding road and cloud shadows, am always looking for signs of life from the plane…still looking.

more snow

Its like the arctic tundra round here, i dont think any other city has a centre that looks like this… Holyrood Park:
