A chance photo from the main round near Parracombe, Devon. It was taken through a wound down car window, the setting sun had just picked out this farm on a winter’s evening. Serendipity, or fortuitous happenstance, took me past just at that time.
Are we going to get another dump of snow this year? it just keeps raining right now.
One evening I decided to drive up onto the moors, only a mile or two from my house – it looked like a nice sunset was promised.
This is not retouched. The sunset was more spectacular than I’ve ever seen and kept changing every couple of minutes. While I was snapping away, amazed by the natural beauty of the sky and spectacular colours, I noticed that the sheep couldn’t care less about. Had they seen it all before? After all, they are up there almost every night.
This was shot above Parracombe in North Devon, England. A beautiful place to live and bring up children – and not bad for grazing sheep too.
One of the most colourful sights I’ve seen. The fruit market in Funchal, Madeira has a second gallery floor, equally as colourful as the ground floor. Almost next door is the fish market with strange and magnificent Atlantic fish as well as those I recognised more easily.
Anyone visiting Madeira shouldn’t miss out on these amazing places of trade – and free entry of course.
It’s exactly a one mile walk from my house in Lynton (on the top of the cliffs) to the beach at Lynmouth. Nobody builds sandcastles here other than in their minds.
Lynton and Lynmouth are twin villages situated at the western edge of Exmoor National Park in the South West of England. The population hovers around 1200 people, but greatly increases with seasonal visitors.
