I took this photo on my ride to Newton Dee today. I go to Newton Dee at least once a week, sometimes twice, if I’m lucky. The view is never the same. Sometimes it’s rainy, sometimes sunny, sometimes dark and gloomy, sometimes sparkly white with snow, sometimes frosty, sometimes clear blue skies, sometimes a mix of blue and grey, sometimes red and orange, sometimes there’s mist in the distant hills which is what I saw today. This is what I love about living in a temperate climate: the variability. People claim to love sunny, clear blue skies but when everyday is a sunny clear blue day it loses its appeal. I know because that’s what I had growing up in Brisbane with its merciless blue sky.
