Where I Work

These are photos from near where I work, in nice offices in a converted farm building on the edge of suburban Edinburgh, with fields on two sides of us (our offices are behind the buildings in the photo above). There's a lovely walk for lunchtime up the hill to the wee farm at the top, where they have geese, goats and sheep.

Today there were small tortoiseshell and peacock butterflies, swallows, 4 skylarks (two singing and then dropping down to chase two others), plenty of goldfinches and what sounded like a grasshopper warbler, though I can't be sure and they're not exactly common! I had hoped to take some photos of the lambs and goat kids but they were nowhere to be seen. Only the horses would pose for me, but they're handsome creatures so here we are.

Wow. That is stunning. No fauna to be seen from the window of MY office, that's for sure.

What a lovely rural outlook you have Juliet and a very interesting job too. I would love to work surrounded by animals. We do have a couple of rare breeds farms open to the public nearby and I love visiting there and photographing the animals.

What a beautiful, peaceful-looking place. I bet your ratio of high/low stress days is vastly different from that of workers in the cities!
