The One Word Sunday prompt from Debbie: Power
Seeing that Debbie’s image of power was in Scotland, I though perhaps mine should also be set in Scotland.
A chimney that was used in the colliery power a coal mine at Lady Victoria Colliery, Newtongrange, Dalkeith where the National Mining Museum is located.
A Wind Turbine from the train to Edinburgh, a clean alternative to coal to power our world.
A bit of Aussie music for you
The word prompt for Bren’s Photo a Week: Chimneys and Fireplaces
My biggest chimney from Scotland
A trio of serious looking chimney pots
Chimney pots from Paris
This chimney pot in Paris reminded me of Ned Kelly
The fireplace of a good friend who lived down the road. He built his house from rock and timber on the land. I went back to see what had happened to his place years after he had moved and later died before his wife sold the property. A lot of the house had rotted away, exposing the place to the elements. Of everything, the kitchen fireplace remained.

I wondered what I would like to have in this post. I randomly clicked on my holiday folder and came up with the village of Luss on the western side of Loch Lomond. The sign as we entered the village said “the prettiest town in Scotland” Just a couple of photos as it was raining the day we were there.
The village has some of the loveliest cottages
I think the owner of this cottage likes flowers
Isn’t this stone wall amazing
Paula’s Traces of the Past Thursdays Special photo challenge
