A celestial-looking swirl of bubbles in an eddy below a cascade in a stream in Aros Park.

Our apartment looks out on this same view but from the other side of the harbor, on the third floor corner of the red building in the background.

This was the moon the day before it was eaten by the eclipse last night or should I say this morning; here in Scotland the eclipse occurred in the wee early hours well after midnight.

Notice that the roof on the little hut in the background is an old boat. There are several other roofs in the area comprised at least partly of a boat. That’s an interesting twist to recycling.

If you’ve wondered about the odd timing of the POTD posts the last couple of days (compared to my usual pattern) it’s because we’re in Scotland, seven time zones east of Montana. This change in posting times will likely continue until we return home in three weeks.

At least some of you I know are saying right now, he traveled all the way to Scotland and that’s the first thing he decided to point his camera at? What can I say except guilty as charged. After our first trip here fifteen years ago, I took a bunch of photos I’d printed to a print shop to get them bound into a book. They’re comment was “These aren’t the usual vacation pictures we see.” They didn’t say whether that was intended as a compliment or not.

One of the many hot springs in Yellowstone National Park whose continual changes and movements make for a dynamic environment, creating and destroying (see the trees in yesterday’s photo) at the same time.

Although it’s about as immobile as a tree stump can get, there’s a sense of motion to this; like it’s trying to crawl away.
