The nearest beach to my home is not exactly a delta, although two streams (becks) flow into it. I have collected together four photos from the last six months or so, which were all taken looking towards the south. They are all from dull days. Perhaps this is because I am trying to show a distant hill in the photos. Sunny days are often hazy and the hill would not be clear.

The weather here towards the end of June is not typical British summer weather and is a contrast to the heat wave we enjoyed earlier in the month. Northerly winds, grey clouds, rain…
Another aspect of the photo challenge was changeability, as demonstrated by the rising tide in a delta. I hope these photos demonstrate that.
Some photos from a recent short break in Scotland have already appeared on this blog (and again) and on Sue’s Trifles. The weather was changeable for most of the time. On the drive we did not see a great deal of sunshine. We stopped at Annandale services, where there was a flock of geese on the far shore and at Loch Lomond.
The weather brightened up for an evening walk around Oban. The Isle of Mull was visible beyond the Isle of Kerrera.
As this is a post about travelling, I shall mention that the weather on the way home was atrocious. The strong jet stream was bringing high winds and torrential rain to the west of Scotland and to Cumbria.
As all these photos include water I a linking to the Daily Post’s photo challenge, Water.
The photo I have chosen for this week’s challenge, Transitionset by JEN H., is an unusual sunset. The last few weeks here have been dominated by grey skies. Just before the sun set on 1 December some gaps in the cloud gave the opportunity for this shot.
The artist Turner spent some time in this area. The light in this shot reminds me of his paintings, although it is impossible to improve on nature, n’est-ce pas?
It is interesting to compare this shot with my entry for the sunset challenge and with Turner’s painting, which I blogged about previously.
