Beyond The Sign, The Highlands, Scotland

 

On of my favourite road trips, its starts from the green road sign, at which we turn for Fort William and this time ends just before Glencoe Mountain Resort, Scotland.  Photos taken from the car window May 2016. 

 

Scottish Trawler

Last year 2016, we were waiting for a ferry to take us to the Isle of Mull early in the morning and I managed to capture one of the fishing trawlers coming into Oban.  Which is a good one for my ‘Occupation Category’ – Trawler Fisherman.

Two Tone Spreader

I love taking photos of tractors, and if there are seagulls following the tractors, even better.  This is not a tractor, I think its a spreader.  I really wanted to catch the person driving the machine, for my occupation category, he or she is in there somewhere…..so its going in anyway, as ‘Driver of a Farm Spreader’  Then I couldn’t make up my mind, faded or mono……… 🙂

Somewhere in the Fens – May 2015

On The Streets of Florence, Italy

Just a few mono photos of the streets of  a very wet Florence, Italy, from last years visit of 2016, well that’s not counting the owl bag.  I really loved that bag, but not the price tag that went along with it, you could, buy a very small house for the price of that owl…….so I just took a photo…..a lot cheaper 🙂

Lines Overhead

Sometimes things just get in the way, and sometimes you just have to look past them.  I took this photo just after we had left Basel Train Station in Switzerland, it was going in the trash, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked……not everything has to be perfect 🙂

Welsh Rocks

Every year we used to spend Easter in Wales, then we stopped, I think because there was too much traffic on the roads.  Well today, Good Friday, the traffic on the main road to the North Norfolk coast from the other side of Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, was pretty horrific.  I have never seen so many caravans and motorhomes on the road in the ten years that we have lived here in the Fens.  It was a shame as no-one was going anywhere for a quite a while, thank goodness we were going the other way.  It looked like a mass evacuation and for once I was pleased we were not going away……we had a pre Easter trip two weeks ago.

 We had a good day despite the weather, three churches, two firmly locked and hurrah, one open.  Good Friday and two out of three churches locked.   I did actually think over Easter they would be open, but we were in Cambridgeshire, a county that I find most of the churches are locked.

Hill Top Castle – Reifenstein Castle (Castel Tasso) South Tyrol, Italy

On a train trip to Italy from the UK in 2016, I saw some wonderful castles and churches from the train window.  I think my favourite castles, were the ones perched up high on a hill top.  This one I especially liked, as you can see the old stone castle walls surrounding the castle complex.  I think we were going through Austria, or it could have been Italy 🙂

Update – After a bit of research, which I should have carried out before I posted, I found the castle.  I also found another photo of the castle.

Reifenstein Castle (Castel Tasso) South Tyrol, Italy, there are apparently some wonderful frescoes inside the castle, so well worth a visit.
