Monday Morning Blues – Bernina Express, Switzerland

Today’s Monday morning blues picture comes from a fabulous train tour of Italy & Switzerland that I stitched together in 2016. The Bernina Express travelled from Tirano on the Swiss/Italian border up to Chur. A fabulous memory and the perfect antidote for a miserable Monday morning.

Old Havana, Cuba

Monday Morning Blues – Old Havana, Cuba

This week’s ‘blue’ photo comes from my January 2017 visit to Cuba. It was a wonderful trip taking in many cities, but Havana was undoubtedly my favourite.

Monday Morning Blues – Sun Voyager, Reykjavik, Iceland

I went to Iceland to celebrate a big birthday in January 2015. Sun Voyager is a sculpture in Reykjavik depicting a Viking longship. The pictures below were shot early morning and evening – it was mighty cold on both occasions! I hope they help you to beat the Monday morning blues!

Monday Morning Blues – St James Park, Exeter

My latest photo comes from this weekend’s football match between Exeter City and Walsall. I love coming ‘home’ to Devon to watch my local football club in the wonderful city of Exeter. For the record, the game ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw, with Exeter coming back from three goals down. Come on the Grecians!
