Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.


Posted by Jackie on January 7, 2009


It was the strange and slightly mad twisty branches of this little tree that caught my eye here, from just up the road from the university library. But of course it’s the traffic cone that really makes it a Glasgow picture 🙂

    The tree is really funky & I like the red from the cone next to it – adds both interest and perspective.
    I’ve really gotten the feel of Glasgow in January from your latest pictures – definitely chilly but so pretty.
    Jackie, I’m sorry I have not acknowledged your kind award until now. I am so very honored to receive it. I also think it’s great the way you follow so many different blogs and with your awards, you’ve introduced me (& other visitors) to “blog” places where we wouldn’t have gone. Thanks very much again, for both.

  3. Great capture! Nice contrast between the twisted branches and the cone!

    The is marvellous alone but as you say the cone of course is the Glascow icing on the cake. Well spotted.

    Egads! Twisted and tangled. Indeed!!! I really like the angle and, of course, the cone adds interest! It reminds me very much of the tangled messes of wild grapevines found here and there in the woods.

    I think that tree wants to grow up to be a chain link fence!

    funny – orange traffic cones are all over the place here in NJ – never where they should be – I think they run at night

    you managed to make the cone beautiful

    Yes I really love this one of the cone entangled in the tree.

    Re your comment about the town hall illuminations – no-one lives across the road from it so the light pollution wouldnt bother them.
