millook cliffs

I was doodling around on the social site Mastodon when I saw a very familiar sight. Someone had posted a shot of the fabulous Millook cliffs, and talked in his post about how he had waited for a woman walking up the beach to enter the frame, to give an idea of the scale of... Continue Reading →

I have an account on the social network that is making headlines at the moment. Mastodon, previously a little-known geek project (certainly was when I first tried it in 2017 anyway), is growing rapidly due to the meltdown of Twitter and its new owner, and a huge escaping herd of tweeters are migrating that way...

profile pic

I noticed that I have never actually posted the full version of the picture I use for my profile image. It was taken in St Ives, Cornwall, a few years ago, and as you might quickly gather from the fact I took it, the man and dog in it are not me and my dog,... Continue Reading →

Anyway, I chose to take my camera with me on one of my daily dog walks, although with low and... Continue Reading →

in praise of hawthorn

I like a gnarly old Hawthorn tree. They're a stoic kind of tree, not fussy about position and soil quality at all, seeming to just get on with doing their thing wherever they find themselves growing. Most don't end up being trees at all, just a constantly trimmed piece of a mixed hedgerow environment, so... Continue Reading →

title here

Just sitting here and thinking of some relevant wording to add to my pictures for this post. Don't mind me. Tell you what, I'll post the pictures for you to look at now, while I carry on and think of the angle I'm going to take for the text. As usual, you can click on... Continue Reading →
