Now that is a strange photo! I'm intrigued tell me more - Helen
Hehe...I thought there might be that kind of reaction Helen.It's a dragon (as far as I can tell) that was on the roof in the Grosvenor Garden Centre, that we were visiting for breakfast during the Christmas break whilst in Cheshire :DHappy New Year and thanks for visiting xoxo
Thanks....I couldn't resist him when I became aware he was peering down at me ;DHappy New Year to you and yours xoxo
I love this, I truly do, a dragon right, ??? a weather vane maybe, or just a finial , I don't know but I do know I love it!!!!!
Yep Laurie...a dragon it is. Or that's what I think it was. Hopefully the sculptor will agree. He was rather high up on the apex of the garden centre roof.(the dragon and not the sculptor that is...hehe) I'm so glad you liked him. I was rather taken with him myself. I think I've got to buy something similar for our place ;DHappy New Year to you and Gary...all the best for 2014 xoxo
That is fabulous!
Isn't he just :DThanks for visiting Michelle...Happy New Year to you xoxo
Have you been hunting dragons
You've sussed me...it's the best way to spend Christmas apparently! Hehe ;DIt also helps when there's a restaurant located near by, to help keep your strength up whilst on the hunt! Happy New Year...wishing you all the best for 2014.xoxo
Wow! Great photo x
Hehe...thanks Kim,I was pleased with him ;DHappy New Year to you and thanks for stopping by. xoxo
such a great photo!xo, http://iwriteaboutyou.blogspot.ca
Thanks Nessaa and Happy New Year to you! ;D
I thought Wales was the place for Dragons, not Scotland
Well it's funny you should mention that Bill because we were very near to Wales. Maybe he'd just nipped over the border for the holidays because we were in Cheshire at the time of this photo ;DI think there's quite a few dragons here in Scotland though. I'll be on the lookout for sure as I really would like one of my own.Great to see you...thanks for stopping by. Happy New Year to you and your family. xoxo
This is fantastic, it looks very gothicThank you for linking up
Doesn't he just...he was so high up on the roof that that was the best shot I could get of him. It's a pleasure to link up as it's always fun to see everyone's photos. Thanks for hosting and I wish you the best 2014 has to offer ;Dxoxo
Such a striking image that makes me want to know better
It's a dragon (as far as I can tell) that was on the roof in the Grosvenor Garden Centre in Cheshire. We were visiting the centre for breakfast during the Christmas break and he caught my attention :DI'm definitely going to try to find something similar for our place here...although maybe not so big! Happy New Year Kate...best wishes for a great 2014.xoxo
That is visually stunning! fab xx
I thought so too...especially with a clear sky to highlight him.Thanks for calling in and I wish you all the best for 2014 ;Dxoxo
fab photo! Very good shot!
Thanks Eileen. I was pleased with the outcome ;DHappy New Year to you! xoxo
Stunning capture, I'm guessing a dragon of some sort? It's fantastic!
Thanks...you guessed right...hehe.Well I think he's a dragon but he was rather high up to be certain ;DHappy New Year and thanks for visiting my place. Best wishes for 2014.xoxo
Stunning photo and a little surreal.
He does capture your eye bearing down on you as you enter the courtyard ;DThanks for stopping by. I wish you all the best for 2014!xoxo
What an intriguing photo! My first thought was a bat but then the other comments lean towards dragon so maybe it's that???
He was far too large to be a bat Serena...I think and I hope I'm right that he was a dragon ;DMaybe I should have checked with the Garden Centre just to make sure?Aww well that means I'll have to go back to Cheshire sometime soon to revisit! No problem with that plan...hehe I hope you had a great time over the festive season...Happy New Year to you!xoxo
Hehe...thanks Janet ;DAll the best for 2014...let's hope it's the best one yet! xoxo
Denise! Don't tell me you were in Cheshire over Christmas! You were so close! arrrg!! I would have loved to meet up with you.Happy New Year! xxoo
(sheepishly) Yes Marie I was down near you but it was a really tight full on family visit. I arrived the week before Christmas to stay with my sister and to generally help her with all the Christmassy activities and plans. Then my hubby, daughter and son travelled down on Christmas Eve to join us. We didn't stay until New Year but it was a fantastic time whilst we were there.We decided that we wanted to celebrate New Year at home.It would have been lovely to meet up with you but maybe we'll be able to arrange that at some stage because with having all of our family (both mine and my hubby's family) living near we'll no doubt be tootling up and down the country regularly.I'll let you know when my next trip is planned...so stand by with that kettle on ;DHappy New Year to you and Todd...not forgetting Mitzie xoxo
Wow - it's a great picture!Good luck for 2014 :-)
Thank you so much Mascha, I really appreciate your comment.Good luck to you too for 2014 ;Dxoxo
Your gargoyle/dragon shot is amazing. It's silhouette looks so powerful against that gorgeous blue sky which you matted in black. Happy New Year, my friend!
Hi Arnoldo, I'm so happy to have you visit once again...it's been a hectic few months hasn't it? I'm also glad to hear you liked my photo. I was rather pleased with the outcome of the shot. He was rather imposing gazing down on us. Happy New Year to you and your lovely family xoxo
Cool pic! Looked like two eagles sparring but you say ......a Dragon! Not a relative of the other Nessie? ;) Happy New Year Nessie. ( couldn't get the vid to get come up, darn)
Happy New Year Nan,I wasn't sure if the photo was clear enough to show what it was but it was awfully high up on the roof so just had to wing it! HA! (sorry...just couldn't resist that)I'll send you another link to see if you can see the pipers. Anyway...thanks for visiting xoxo
I love it when shots work out like that. He's such a cute little fellow - I wouldn't mind having one watching over my garden!
I'm going to be on the lookout for one like him for my own place. I think they're a special addition to the garden. I'm glad you liked him ;DHave a great week whatever you have planned. xoxo
what a mistery image! it calls me to fly :)
He's caused quite a stir Nat ;DEnjoy your week and thanks for stopping by xoxo
Oh my word, Silent Sunday so there is nothing to help me or give me clues about the fascinating image. It looks like some kind of gothic sculpture, winged creatures. Thank goodness I have just had the sense to read the other comments and your replies, so I don't need to spend all night puzzling over it. It's a great silhouetted shot. There are times when you just have to take the shot of a quick moment and so good when it works as this one did.Thank you for your kind and interesting comment on my blog.
Hehe...I have trouble with Silent Sunday entries too Jez. You know me and how much I love to natter, so it's like sewing my lips together not letting me explain or write about the photo. It's agony at times but then thankfully the comment section allows me to explain. As soon as I glanced up and saw him, I ran back inside for my camera. You just see something and it shouts "take me...take me or shoot me" in a good way of course! This was one of those occasions. I was pleased with the outcome, although he's not as clear as I'd have liked but then I'd have had to scale up the building to get a closer shot and he was quite high up.Thanks for popping over and leaving a comment ;DHave a wonderful week...enjoy! xoxo
Hey, I've just decided that coming to your Silent Sunday on Tuesday is the best... well let's be honest it's taken me till Tuesday to reach the end of all your comments... but then I get to know all about your dragon and your Christmas, perfect :)May I be the first to wish you a wonderful Wednesday?!!!Wren x
LOL I'm so happy that you visit no matter what day it is Wren,I know I've got a lot of catching up to do with my visiting which I hope to do today. I'm hoping that things will be settling down to a more normal routine from today! Ha...you never know...you can wish can't you? ;DWell yes you are certainly the first (and probably the last) to wish me a wonderful Wednesday! If I hurry I can wish you a Terrific Tuesday although you're in the latter stages of the day. Enjoy the tennis! xoxo
Goodness gracious child - it is great to see you again but I have to tell you -- that image looks like something from The Day of The Dead!!!!Sandy
Hehe...he's caused quite a stir Sandy.I thought it would be a photo to capture peoples imagination and he's not disappointed.Great to see you once again. Have a wonderful week and I hope that you aren't too involved with all that horrendous weather we are hearing about. Take care xoxo
That's quite spectacular! Love the silhouette! :)
:D You've made me smile with your lovely comment. Thanks so much.Have a great week whatever you have on your plan.
Oh wow that's rather spectacular :)
Hehe thanks Charly...I'm quite pleased with him. Now I want one of my own ;DHave a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by.
