Lews castle grounds

I had to go into Stornoway this morning and when I had finished I decided to go for a walk in the grounds around Lews castle college, the day was misty rain and sun early but was becoming more sun and less rain, it was a nice walk I am glad I went, I walked up to the top of gallows hill from where you get an almost birds eye view of Stornoway and surrounds,

Stornoway,



across the moor to the hills of west Lewis, the tops are covered in cloud,


across the minch to the mainland,



some gorse already in flower! it has been mild (just wish it was less wet),



I have been doing a little hand sewing on some ufos so I guess they are now wips, nothing great just some strip landscape scenes in Harris tweed that I cut out over 7 years ago (I know this because I did them when I was on Scalpay and I have been on Lewis 7 years now, time flies), I am enjoying playing/learning photoshop elements and am thinking of some as pieces of fabric, starting points,

Even in the cold weather it looks beautiful. I love looking at your photos AND your fabric work. Thank you for sharing it with us.
