Craigie Chimney Pots

The skies have been blue grey recently which contrasts nicely with the terracotta and biscuit colours of chimney stacks in Perth. These photos are of just some of the chimneys in one street in the Craigie area of Perth. They are all different!

April 2021

April was a month of bright blue skies, clouds, showers and rainbows. Buds and blossoms bloomed. We particularly enjoyed walks by the River Tay as we could see through the bare tree branches to the river banks.

December 2020

I always enjoy photography in December: the low angled light brings out textures, the skies are frequently colourful, the atmosphere still and there are the treasures of frost, snow and inquisitive garden robins.

June 2020

There were some glorious skies this month – colours and unusual cloud patterns. For once there was a nice sunset at the solstice on the 20th June.

May 2020

May turned out to be the driest calendar month on record with lots of sun. It was very pretty and varied: mists, beams of sun, frost, colourful skies and all the time the plants were greening and flowering.

April 2020

Sadly, April turned out to be unique in the world’s history as at least one quarter of the planet’s population was asked to remain at home to prevent the spread of the dangerous Covid-19 virus and many, many people died. Weather wise it was a beautiful month, much less poluted than usual. We had daily daybreak walks in our local park and really appreciated spring blossoming.

February 1st 2020

A feeling of spring – snowdrops out, birds singing in the trees, colourful slate grey skies, a shower of rain, light on the land and well illuminated chimney pots!

January 2020 brought clouds, some colourful skies at dawn and dusk and finally, late in the month, a morning of snow.
