So where's the snow?

Not very old (and therefore fresh)  piglets in Weißpriach, enjoying the sun!

Mum was outside begging for food.

These are domestic pigs crossed with wild boar and belong to the local Guest House, the Diktler Hutte. Nuff said!

Ponderings on the Weekly photo challenge

My top post of 2014 -minimalist storm coming

Its been through the jolly old wpc that my blog has found many followers and I’ve found many of the blogs I love to read. I fully admit that I’m guilty of sitting by my laptop on a Friday evening to see what the subject is and how quickly I can create something. I found quite soon (being very competitive) that the quicker I post, the more likes I get – a form of approval seeking for sure!  I’ve decided that this is daft, and I will only post now if the subject really grabs me and a photo springs to mind.

I had a glean around the site today, 100s of entries and the penny has dropped that now all the new posts are at the top of the page-bravo WP, people are not going to trawl to the bottom are they?

What does annoy me, is when I look at some blogs (after I’ve posted) some peeps have just added a pingback to an already published post OR post some completely random subject, where I guess the link is known only to themselves. Some people seem to set their own challenge using the WPC.

COP OUT I say. Shouldn’t we be all original and artistic?

On our recent road trip from Cherbourg to home in Austria, we stopped overnight in Amiens in France.

What a sunrise!

The gloom made me think of all the battles that took place in the area, how cold the soldiers must have been in the trenches on such a cold December morning
