JOHN CALVERT (01/08/09)

Sunny spells in between prolonged showers was the order of the day, my project was to photograph a famous locomotive The Sir Nigel Greesley, never saw it for rain but an interesting walk round the valley non the less. The scenery is totally different to home with wooded valleys giving way to bleak moorland.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA PAINTED LADY?......Dozens of these, all dinning on thistles and in the rain too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA KESTREL...... The third of the day, or possibly the same one three times.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA KESTREL DEPARTING.....The only reason for this is the fact that for once it's almost in focus, must practice more, plenty of rooks and seagulls to hone my skills on.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJOHN CALVERT...... Good job I don't get a plaque every time I fall asleep. Seriously, I found this quite moving and a beautiful place to depart this earth. Lucky fellow!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo idea who he was but I like to think of him as an old shepherd.

That's all, hope to get these out on a more regular basis. First time in a week with both Internet and mobile phone, and so much to catch up on. All the best.

  2. Certainly is a Painted Lady Adrian. Lots about at the moment. Counted 21 this morning in about 10 minutes while walking Jim.

    The picture of the gate, 'Still Wet'; big thumbs up from me. Love it.

  4. The North York Moors are certainly a beautiful area .. have driven across them but not actually explored the region. Try and visit the Dales - so wild and untamed .

  5. John was a roadman and had been at work on the Whitby - Pickering road, spreading whinstone. His body was not found until the following day. He regularly tended the greens at Goathland Golf Club.

    But he might have been a shepherd in his spare time if it suits your romantic soul, Adrian!
