I snapped this photograph on my first visit to India in 1996 when we took a school party to Goa for a week. The market at Anjuna is very well known but you have to be adept at negotiation in order to get a bargain.
The leaves are starting to fall, and all too soon were blown away by the autumn gales. This view emphasises the mass of foliage that shades walkers who pass along the Moat Brae toward the harbour. On the right is the Harbour Cottage Gallery where my wife and I have held exhibitions of our painting and photography, and ahead of us is the start of the old High Street where a number of quite well known Kirkcudbright artists used to live.
I missed some great shots earlier as we approached the bridge that links the island to the mainland. The sun was coming across in patches of light from under that cloud, but all too fleetingly, and despite parking on a footpath I missed the light. This view from the bridge partly made up for it. The view is towards Portsmouth.
