Now that is so clever. Lighting, image, all of it. Excellent result. Ahem, 'nithering'? I am intrigued.

Thank you. Excellent word, almost onomatopoeic. Same with the word, 'dreich'.

To quote from BBC News, 20 November 2019: 'A word that is commonly used to describe the Scottish weather has been named the "most iconic" Scots word. "Dreich" - meaning dull or gloomy - topped a poll to mark Book Week Scotland, led by the Scottish Book Trust. It beat off contenders including "glaikit", "scunnered" and "shoogle". The charity said the first recorded use of the word "dreich" was in 1420, when it originally meant "enduring" or "slow, tedious".

Personally my favourite word is 'buggert', Aberdonian for, shall we say, no longer working. As in, 'It's aye buggert.' Yep, definitely works for me.

Mrs L, who is from God's Own County, says she's never heard of the word. And she's taught me a few strange words over the years!

Nice picture, by the way. Well seen, well taken.

We're in East Yorkshire, not Wessies, so may be more local than all of Yorkshire.
BTW I am only a newboy here, having emigrated to Yorkshre 31 years ago and so not fully assimilated and may have language difficulties ....

Ah, you may be right (or should that be 'reet'?). She's from the deep south where pit tips and blast furnaces were part of the landscape. It's apparently hard to find them in that area now, it's all shops, nature reserves and flooded housing estates.

It were definitely nithering in Doncaster on Saturday. A word that Paul Hudson the BBC Look North weatherman takes great delight in slipping into his forecast. Also a word that my late neighbour Bob Rust used to get in on the ITV Calendar forecast.

Lovely image of the back lit leaf.
