Everyone knows Autumn has the best sunsets. Out and about near Henley yesterday evening. It’s lighter than it appears: hard to get the sky and ground to both expose nicely; presumably need some HDR trickery.

Out wandering high up in the Chilterns near Russel’s Water I came across these pretty fluffy things. No idea what they are as usual. Perhaps some sort of dandelion? Blodgett would know. Daily factoid: perusing the previously linked Wikipedia article, I discovered that these plants are adjacent to a pond featured in Chitty Chitty Bang […]
I went to the Eastbourne Airshow with my mum while I was at home last weekend. Borrowed my Dad’s SLR avec telephoto lens to take some snaps. I think they came out rather well after some judicious cropping.
I spent last weekend visiting some northern acquaintances in Yorkshire. On Saturday we went on an adventure to Richmond Castle via Darlington. And a very pleasant castle it is too! It’s got a nicely preserved keep which you can climb to the top of for some excellent views of the quaint market town and surrounding […]

The last time I came here I was a small child and all I remember is being terrified by how tall and massive it was. Some shrinkage has occurred over the last twenty years. Still it’s […]

A cloudy bank holiday weekend seems the perfect occasion to spend the day wandering around a National Trust property with the family. So off we went to Bodiam Castle yesterday. This has got to be one of my favorite castles: it’s so cute and well formed! Somewhat like Skipton Castle. Some photos I took:
Maybe some kind of grasshopper? Saw it on the balcony today in the sun.
