more from the Constable school of photography


the mist starts rising as the sun warms up a cold forest stream on a frosty morning

holmbush



there is no doubt that we live in an interesting place. These are the old mine workings at Holmbush, which have been restored is very well preserved and are part of the world heritage mining site, and lies in the shadow of Kit Hill.

moon lane


It is hard to reproduce the illusion of the enlargement of the moon as it rises on the horizon. It seemed appropriate to have a buzzard watch over us. The first few lambs have appeared although the lambing season now goes on for many months. Otherwise not much has happened hence lack of photos and blogging.
