Photographer's Note

The path by the lake in Montreux is very attractive thanks to the colourful flowers and view of the mountains plunging into the lake, even when it's raining like here.

I dedicate this photo to my grandmother, who died yesterday at 99, because she always loved flowers.

Dear Nan, I will always remember you for:

- shaking blossom to make it look like snow
- your huge, colourful hydrangeas
- your curiosity and collection of Finding Out magazines
- your delicious stewed fruit and Christmas pudding
- giving me banana custard with icecream in bed for breakfast
- playing endless games of patience, 500 and scrabble and being able to see what you had in the reflection of your glasses
- helping you do Meals On Wheels and delivering them to people much younger than yourself
- learning about our family history together
- coming to visit us when you were 90
- your funny sense of humour the last time I saw you when you said you wanted to see John Howard lose the election before dying; and you got your wish.

Les quais de Montreux sont magnifiques grâce aux fleurs colorées qui les bordent et la vue des montagnes qui plongent dans le lac, même quand il pleut comme ici.

Je dédie cette image à ma grand-mère qui est décédée hier à 99 ans car elle a toujours aimé les fleurs.

El camino al bordo del lago en Montreux es precioso gracias a las flores y la vista de las montañas que parecen caer en el agua.

Dedico esta foto para mi abuela quien murio ayer con 99 años, porque siempre le ha gustado flores.

Thank you everyone for all your kind words and support

Merci à tous pour vos gentils mots et pour votre soutien

Gracias a todos por vuestras palabras simpaticas y apoyo
