What? No photo challenge?

As it is the holiday season there is no photo challenge from the Daily Post this week. I have looked through my photos and decided to share a few from two days a month apart. They demonstrate the changing weather and the effect of light on some views.



With good wishes for 2018 to all my readers.


A favourite tourist destination

The photos I have chosen for the Favourites photo challenge are two I have not shared previously. They were taken on an overcast afternoon in August. The town is perhaps one of the most visited in England – Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Can you spot the helicopter? It rather spoils one of the photos.

I wish all my readers peace and joy at Christmas.

Finding serenity on a road trip

Travelling on motorways is not most people’s idea of a way to find peace or serenity. However in some places there are motorway services, which provide a real refuge from the hurly-burly of life.

One such place is the Killington Lake services in Cumbria. It is quite an exposed location and was windy and chilly even in August. (Our British summer was not very warm this year.)
