Commuting to work

One of the downsides of my new studio is that I can't go to work in my pyjamas!  However, I am finding the commuting less trouble than I expected and on days like today it can be a real delight.
The weather has been very changeable recently and the temperature has been up and down like a yo-yo but today was warm - even at 7.30 in the morning.

The sun was just rising when I left the house and the sky looked as though it was on fire.

The reason for the early start is that I when I have to take the bus I have a choice of 7.40 or 9.30.  A lot of work to do at the moment as I had a really successful craft fair last weekend in Glasgow and sold out of some things - need to make more for this weekend's event at Strathpeffer Pavillion - Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November, 11am to 4pm!

The bus was on time and almost empty so I was able to have my pick of seats.  I chose one that would allow me to take photographs along the way.  It is a bit tricky taking pictures on a bus that swings round corners at 60 miles an hour, but what follows is a selection of the more successful shots.

Next Craft Fair dates are as follows :
12th & 13th November - Birnham House Hotel, beside Dunkeld in Perthshire
18th to 20th November - Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
25th to 27th November - Brodie Castle near Forres, in Moray
