About Me

My Photo
I am an old age traveller of sixty four years who wanders about with a couple of dogs in a motor home. I take pictures of anything I find interesting. All images are shot and posted the same day unless I state otherwise. It is good for discipline if not for quality. I hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to express yourself in the comments box. As long as your thoughts are not obscene or racist then they will be published. ALL IMAGES WILL ENLARGE WITH A CLICK

Tomorrow I am setting off on the drive south to Middlesbrough. It’s a good four hour run but an interesting one hundred and eighty miles down the A68.

I anticipate staying for a couple of weeks or so and will split my time between the North East and York. Then I’ll wander back via the Lake district and the Borders before setting off to the Highlands for winter. I’m hoping for a magical snowy season with plenty of hoar frost. I suspect the reality will be gales and rain but there is nothing wrong with a dream.

I haven’t taken any pictures today but yesterday I found this splendid fungus. _MG_3687

_MG_3688    Fringed Hay-cap. Panaeolus sphinctrinus. I am 80% sure of the ID but have never seen one anything like this size. It was in perfect condition. I ought to have got a spore print but didn’t like to remove it. It may produce some more large ones if left alone.

That’s all for today.
