– Cotton grass is one of the more delightful features of the West Highland peat bogs, and Algy is fascinated by it every summer. He loves to sit among the fluffy seedheads and watch them blowing in the wind 🙂                                               Algy made this GIF today especially to celebrate imiging‘s exciting new monthly GIF feature. Algy loves photo-GIFs!

This so charming GIF was especially made by our VIP imiging Club Member for the amazing imigif day n°11 curated by imigingSubmit your own creation to join the party next month. Let’s Gif today!

It’s cotton grass time again, and Algy loves to relax in one of the drier spots in the peat bogs, surrounded by the fragrance of the aromatic bog myrtle, just watching the fluffy seed heads blowing in the wind 🙂

Algy sends a big fluffy hug and his fluffiest thanks to his kind friends @imiging for featuring this GIF in their amazing imigif day earlier this month. He hopes that many more of his friends will join in the fun and create original GIFs from their photographs for the next imigif day on 1st July.

Algy perched on a rock in the evening sun and thought about life, the universe, fame and the ocean. There were few things he enjoyed more than watching the sea splash up against the rock and wondering whether it would manage to sprinkle him with sticky, salty water. His wee moment of fame on Tumblr was just like the sparkling splash of the waves – a lovely, momentary burst of bright spray that might perhaps reach him, but was gone in an instant. But fortunately – unlike the attention of the human world – the sea never stopped, and Algy knew that he could return to the rock any time he wanted to, and watch it again. And sometimes the splashes would reach him 🙂

Thank you so much, dear friends at @imiging, for selecting this GIF for your wonderful imigif day n°9 🙂 Algy is always delighted to be a part of this very special monthly event, and there are few things he enjoys more than sitting on a rock in the sunshine, watching the sea splash in front of him 🙂

As Algy watched the sun sink down, and waves of darkness stole quietly across the loch, he began to observe a strangely hypnotic phenomenon. Of course he was exceedingly tired after his arduous flight along the river, and the light in the gloaming is always tricky and apt to deceive. It’s only too easy to imagine that you are seeing strange things when twilight falls in the West Highlands, even if you are wide awake. Nevertheless, it seemed to Algy that all was not entirely as he might have expected it to be… He was too exhausted to remain alert, or even to stay awake for longer than a few moments at a time, but as he dozed to the rhythm of the flickering light, he wondered drowsily whether it was really entirely wise to fall asleep at this time…

As many of Algy’s friends will know, Algy has always been very keen on animated GIFs, and many of his adventures have appeared as GIFs. So he was really delighted to discover today that one of the major photo curation blogs imiging was starting a monthly celebration of GIFs on the 1st day of each month. Algy feels that GIFs made from original photography have too often been ignored by the photographic community – GIFs are photographs too! At least they are the way Algy makes them – from a series of still photos.

So Algy is very pleased with imiging 🙂 And he is looking forward very much to seeing all the other wonderful GIFs that they post each month.

Of course Algy was even more thrilled to find (later in the day) that imiging had chosen one of his GIFs to include in their own selection to launch this exciting new monthly feature.

Algy sends fluffy thanks and lots of fluffy hugs to his friends at imiging xoxo
