ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

2009 WHERE WE'VE BEEN Part two

A few more catch up pictures from the last five months, I notice they are still a little on the grim side. Sorry, should be bright eyed and bushy tailed again next week.

Have left out Decembers pictures as I will do a round up for the month on the next rainy day. That shouldn't be too far away.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    Not New Year but Bonfire Night. In line with my new policy of openness this is a composite image............The camera may lie but I haven't!

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Dunstanburgh Castle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    Coach and Horses, Marsden.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Carew Castle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKingswear Castle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    Par Sands..............Not a castle but China Clay silos. I quite like these though I suspect their days are numbered.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    Falmouth Bay

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  St. Michael's Mount

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy pub of the year, Falmouth.

It's amazing how much baggage I have accumulated. Tuesday we head north, snow and ice permitting. I hope to spend January in the Lake District and will then consider a more disciplined approach. Consider is the operative word here!

All the best.

  1. Very jealous!

    Also, I hadn't twigged until I saw your map that Newcastle-upon-Tyne has been part of your tour. Jealous about that too. I used to live there - before it got vamped up. It was a long time ago but I still feel homesick for the town, the people and the drama of the countryside around it. Even the cold!

    Happy New Year Adrian. I have an irrational sense that 2010 will be a good one and wish you all the best.

  2. Lucy, thanks and the same to you. Hexham was where I meant to pop the wee star, went past Newcastle, but was short of an interpreter. We used to dock in Hartlepool, was the ladies who were vamped up there.

  5. Very nice images. I have found some nice photos from 2007 and 2008 that I would like to use in my blogs but last night was a bad night for me and I didn't get much rest. Most of the time I had one coughing fit after another. I thought I would try to just say, "thanks" to those who stopped today. I appreciate the comments, visits and prayers. I hope things will get back to normal soon.

  6. Abe so do I. You look after yourself and if you can't, fly to the UK, whatever you hear we do a fair job, OK some die but that is normal. Just take care and make sure you get your allotted time.

  7. Happy New Year Adrian and Molly.
    A lovely collection of photographs of your travels.
    The Lake District will provide you with the ideal settings so I look forward to some fantastic photographs. Wish I was up that way as I love the Lakes and Dales.

  8. I look forward to the Lake District, I've always imagined that if ever I went there I would be inspired to write poetry. Don't think I wrote a single poem in 2009, the stars weren't aligned for it or something. Any other awards other than Pub of the Year?

  15. Wow - you have been busy. Love the firework shot.

  16. Angie, thanks. This is a composite of four images, all shot within the same hour. Only London can afford to fire more than one at a time! Thanks to you and tour fellow birders I'm very slowly learning that there is a whole new dimension to my travels. A much harder one photographically than fireworks!
