Kippford

According to Wiki:  Kippford is a small village along the Solway coast, in the historical county of Kirkcudbrightshire in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

It is home to the most expensive properties in Dumfries & Galloway and is known as the Solway Riviera.  Well that’s news to me.  Riviera or not, it was surprisingly quiet even during Scottish schools’ half-term week.

Spend a few years on WordPress and there is the risk that posts become repetitive – the last time I was here was August 2014, staying overnight for golf at Colvend.  Four years on not much has changed – I am staying for two nights for three rounds of golf at Lochmaben, Cally Palace and Dumfries & Galloway.  More of the same sums up everything.

This time however, it was later in the year and the sun lower in the early evening sky.  The ‘Riviera‘ was lit with a golden light, captured on a Fuji X100F – last time it was the X100S – like I say, more of the same:

    Beautifully caught, Robin. That light!

      Thanks Tish, it’s a lovely part of the world which I recommend. I had always heard it referred to as the Secret Coast, never the Solway Riviera

        The latter sounds far too tacky for such a lovely spot.

    Well I don’t know how many other blogs have dropped off my feed but I imagine there are plenty, great catching up though

      Thanks for the comments and likes, good to hear from you – I put too much effort into Blip and not enough into WordPress at the moment

      Many thanks Jo – are you somewhere distant at the moment – if so hope you are having a grand time … and the same if you aren’t 🙂

    I had to laugh a little at the use of the word « riviera » with a place in Scotland. The coast is beautiful, but in a gloomy way (usually). We’ve both been on WP for quite a while now…I also have to be careful to keep post topics fresh. Beautiful images, as always.

      Many thanks for your ever generous comments. Maybe you do the same – occasionally I look back on my WordPress posts and I am surprised by what I find. The memory cells are not what they used to be 😉

        I do look back every once in a great while. I’m mostly amazed by the evolution in my perception of things. So cliché to say, but life is truly a journey.
