JANES PHOTO BLOG

Photo’s of Grantown-on-Spey and the surrounding area taken by Jane.

Meet Jane

This is NOT Jane

Hello, my name is Jane Hope.  I am currently a board member of Grantown Initiative and Treasurer of Grantown Museum. Having retired from the Cairngorms National Park Authority in recent years, I now roam freely with my camera, taking pictures of the events, the landscapes, and wildlife that grace this National Park throughout the year. I will be sharing these picures on a monthly basis, and perhaps more often, depending on what catches my eye as I go out and about.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so the idea of this blog is simply to illustrate life in the Cairngorms National Park, particularly around Grantown-on-Spey.

Remembrance Sunday

11 November 2018, 100 years on from

the Armistice, the people of

Grantown remember.

Poppies, kintted as an act of

remembrance, glow in the

November sunshine.

Younger generations contemplate:

“all gave some,

some gave all,

least we forget”.

I have taken all the colour ouf of this photo

except the red, so the poppies stand in poignant

contrast to the sombre grey.

Grantown in Autumn

It is difficult to do justice to the autumn

colours which this year seem better than

ever; even on a dull wet day the beech

trees glow on the road into town.

Autumn sunlight

The last of the autumn sunlight

in Anagach Woods, first week of

October.
