I added a "filter" to block certain words but now I get these silly little nearly-blank posts that say "filtered" in them.

Does anyone know how I can turn those off?

The anemone is one of my favourite (cultivated) flowers.

Here's another one of these hardy mountain plants. Notice the little flowers hidden between the leaves.

Plants have to be pretty tough to survive on the Cairngorm plateau. This one looks like a small cactus.

This is a view I like very much, looking to the south along the Lairig Ghru pass from the ridge leading to Ben Macdui.

Another view from somewhere along that same ridge. Nice rocks.

These are pictures of the view down into the Lairig Ghru pass from the ridge leading to Ben Macdui.

From Aviemore there is a public bus service to the Cairngorm Mountain ski centre. From there, a moderate walk takes you up to the Cairngorm plateau, an "arctic-alpine mountain environment with tundra-like characteristics". A barren but beautiful place.
On the way there I passed this picturesque mountain stream.

Two months ago I was on holiday and as usual took lots of pics. I did not post all of them right after that trip, and it is strange how quickly the motivation to post pictures drops with time.

TFW you're noticing a steady uptick in not-CWed politics posts... :/
Guys, please, PLEASE respect the CW norms over here. It's so, so helpful to let people have the choice as to whether to interact with politics, rather than shoving it in their faces.

Who would be interested to set up an instance for ? โš—๏ธ

Perhaps, funded by a cooperative.

Please boost this toot to help me find my fellas ๐Ÿ˜€

@masklayer nice photographs! Always wanted to do more night sky photography myself but hard to do in Berlin ๐Ÿ˜…

mastodon is like when the mages guild gets fed up with the world's bullshit & lifts their island into the sky.

It's so different to look at completely dark sky and see how much more you can see.
