Nice Photos

I’ll be 57 soon and know what you mean. A couple of health niggles have impacted me over the last two years or so. But, I keep plugging away because I love being out in these remote places. You’re right though; at some point, I think it’s inevitable I will have to scale things back a bit.

Know the area well, The Ramblers in Edale does a nice refreshing pint after dropping down from Mam Tor.

I’m sure they could make that car a bit longer if they tried a bit harder. Daft!!

Thank you, I think acoustic folk is particularly suited to live listening, and always enjoyable. The Scottish pipes need a lot of space to sound good.

Had a look through your flickr albums, impressive selection of images, and recognise a few places, and even photographed at some of the locations myself, (at least Ramsholt, Woodbridge and Goodwood!). I see you are using the Z9…I have a way to go to reach this peak of Nikon camera perfection.

I will try to visit Old Warden next year…before it is too late for me. The low key atmosphere was evident at the early Goodwood events, now rather sadly lost as the events have grown.

Took the intra island passenger ferry to day for a ride and a lunch out. Lovely, as were the Morrocan Lamb Chops.

Having contributed very little work to this thread, time I added a few…

I’ve been a fan of using flare on the lens from time to time so did so in Ottawa on this occasion. Hard to do with an iPhone but this was an SLR (film rather than digital).

The next one just looks like a pile of logs but it’s the Jamestown settlement in Virginia and having visited the Pocahontas memorial in Gravesend as a kid, it meant a lot to see where the story started

The third is from Dubuque County, Iowa, and is the baseball diamond from ‘The Field of Dreams’ film. The house is behind where I’m standing and the crowd proves the motto - build it, and they will come!

Wonderful! Is that part of the Battle of Britain Flight?

Not far away but this one belongs to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby. Interesting tale behind it all but long story short, they expect it to be flying (and taking passenegers!) in five years.

They give it a run up and taxi rides (which helps cover restoration costs) periodically and yesterday they put it out with Tony Agar’s Mosquito, another very long term project and gave them both a run.

Proper fire breathers, those inboards…
