Last year we had to have some trees felled, unfortunately due to age they had became too tall and they had become a little dangerous in high winds.  The above tree had actually been struck by lightening and was dangerous to the other trees surrounding it, but it has and will keep our wood burning stove going for quite a long time.  It was also quite interesting to watch. how they climbed the very tall trees, not something you see everyday. 

I think they are candidates for my ‘Occupation Category’

The Dogs of Shuttleworth Bedfordshire

Last year 2017, we visited Suttleworth in Bedfordshire to see an air show.  While we were waiting to see the vintage planes, I took photos of the canine visitors.

The Shuttleworth Collection is an aeronautical and automotive museum located at the Old Warden Aerodrome, Old Warden in Bedfordshire, England.  It is one of the most prestigious in the world due to the variety of old and well-preserved aircraft.

Sand Bikes, On The Beach At Margate, Kent

Sorting through some of the last of my 2015 photos, I came across a trip to Margate on the Kent coast.  The trip took place on the 25th October, just look at the weather, beautiful for that time of the year.  We were visiting with family……..they had a terrible job pulling me away from the bikes, I’m not even sure what kind of bikes they are.  I just love taking action photos, you never know what’s going to happen, and the race was a surprise, as we had no idea it was taking place.  Later on in the day, we walked back along the beach, and it was as if nothing had ever happened, not a tyre mark to be seen.

Also a nice addition for my ‘Occupation Category’ 

A Tent of Spinners

I thought this was quite a good photo for my Occuption Category, Spinners with their Spinning Wheels.   Taken at a show we went to somewhere in Lincolnshire, I just popped into the tent and took a quick shot. I loved the way they were all just sat around really enjoying themselves 🙂

An Island Road

I am in black & white mode at the moment, and came across this photo again, which I posted a few years ago.   I love the cow just ambling along, there had been a herd go pass a few seconds before I shot this photo, but there were too many, one was plenty to go with the figures.  We were on the Iona, an island off the West Coast of Scotland.
