ABOUT ME

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

PAVEMENT TWO (23/07/11)

I have just settled after a three hour barbeque and three pints………me tipsy…………No way…..I have also repaired a fellow campers electric water pump, if he knew what I know about electricity he wouldn’t have considered asking. No………his van hasn’t  caught fire and he can have a shower…….I surprise myself sometimes. Here are the normal pictures from today. Maybe not normal but as normal as they are likely to get.image       Harts Tongue Fern……………a bit of moss and a bit of pavement. The gaps in the limestone conceal no end of little treasures.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         What this is I have no idea………….I just hope Phil Gates is around………….or anyone else that is not as ignorant as I am…………….it’s growing here…………………………..

image     It’s the blue ones………the yellow ones are Buttercups.

image        I’ve always called this Stonecrop…………….I suspect it isn’t but it is a delicate plant to find in such an inhospitable place.

image       Rowan trees……………just put me right if I am wrong.

image     This is a Thistle……..there are dozens of different ones but a Thistle it is.

imageI’m on safer ground here this little pot hole a foot square can be impressive after heavy rain ………..today just a trickle but enough to give the dogs a drink.

imageThis pond gave them a swim as well

imageOur destination…………..Why this cairn is here I have no idea, it is not on a path to anywhere but has taken some time to build.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      The view is stunning…………..just on the horizon is the seaside……Lancaster and Morecombe Bay………..I hope!

Now it’s time for bed…………tomorrow I’m working.

  2. Stunning again.
    I think the blue flower is Field Scabious; but I may be wrong.
    Don't work too hard tomorrow.

  3. Trevor, it is interesting. I can't discern it's purpose.

    Keith, it does look like one but in my book they are a maroon colour. I worked yesterday, not hard! Today i have polished the van, that was hard.

  4. Have you joined "iSpot" for identification, it has taught me on many occasions. Apart from that, your pictures are brilliant, the cairn, the pond and the flowers. What is that, you are working?

    A wonderful feature in that part of the world.

  8. One of the problems with England's remote areas is that you can so often see out of the remoteness to 'civilisation'. I remember as a youngster the first time I climbed up the Langdale Pikes and realised I could see right out of the Lake District. I was so disappointed. Now if I stand on The Clisham on Harris I can see St Kilda and the whole of the Scottish West Coast (well I can on the three days of the year when it's clear enough) but they are far enough away for me to have a real sense of remoteness.

  9. Bob, thanks, I'll look into ISpot. I do work cooking from time to time.

    Tricia, It is a grand place but can be cold and wet.

    Andrew, they are a pain to walk on but I find them fascinating.

    Norma, they are good, a pity I'm never quite sure what I'm looking at.

    Graham, yes are wilderness is very compact until one gets to the Highlands. Break an ankle up there though and unless one was lucky it would be a long crawl out.

  10. I love the images of the wildlife amongst the the rocks. Great shots & the ones with the trees in the background. I try to look for things like this with the camera but never seem to .... give myself enough time !
