|Day 263 - Autumn Seaweed|
Monday dawns, my diary if full to busting and my brain if fixed firmly on the weekend ahead an my first Cani-cross event, so I will be running in more ways than one this week. The evening brought my usual evening class students and we went to one of my favourite local spots - the Lamlash boatyard and photographed as the dusk turned the sky pink. The seaweed, exposed by the tide shimmered in autumn colours which are not apparent in monochrome.

This 'bug' appeared on Tuesday evening, late, but with perfect timing as I realised I hadn't done the requisite photo of the day. It seem unperturbed by my spotlight, however this proved tricky as I tried to manage the camera and light whilst focusing.
|Day 265 - Catching the light|
|Day 266 - Surfing the breeze|
|Day 267 - Mainland bales|
|Day 268 - Cani-cross on a scooter|
|Day 269 - Second race day|
Today I get to do it all again but further this time and I'm not quite so nervous. A bonus was the rain abated somewhat today, but the course was still muddy. We completed the course in a good time (for us) very slow compared to everyone else. But I was really pleased with how it went and how Watson took to it. I did carry a compact camera around but found it impossible to take a clear image during the race and gave up after a couple of tries and concentrated on keeping upright.

|Day 270 - Ugly concrete bridge on what was a beautiful woodland path.|
As much as I like going away for a few day, there is something special about coming home. And the sunlight broke through the clouds as we neared Brodick. Worth the blast of chilly wind to get the shot.
|Day 271 - Sunburst through the clouds|
|Day 272 - Abandoned nest|
|Day 273 - Little spider clings to the underside of a yellow leaf.|
This is my favourite time of year for colour and light and I really hope to make the most of it over the next couple of weeks.
