Autumn Breaks.

It's been an above average autumn for photography this year. We had a couple of weeks of calm, warm weather with plenty of blue skies around mid October. Thankfully my shifts coincided with these bright spells, giving me a fine week in The Lakes and this was followed by some decent weather in The Dales.

The Lakes photos are take at Tarn Hows, Brotherswater , Ullswater and Borrowdale  and The Dales photos were mainly taken in Malham. As I write this blog, the weather seems to have taken a change for the worse. We have recently had high winds, rain and now fog which seems to be gradually taking the leaves off of the trees. Still it was nice while it lasted.

Looking forward to a few frosty cold days now and maybe just a bit of snow.
















Going Home

This song by Runrig seems to sum up my feelings and emotions perfectly when I visit the far North West of Scotland and The Isle of Skye. I have just spent a few days in that area, staying at The Loch Maree Hotel for three nights and then two in Portree at the Rosedale Hotel.

In the distance, day was dawning Comes to me the early morning Something tells me that I'm going home
The brand new sun shining bright From the darkness fields of light Something tells me that I'm going home
Going home when the summer's coming in And the moonlight on the river Shows me where I've been
Soft, the rain is gently falling Lightly cross the city morning I get the feeling that I'm going home
Across the moorlands, past the mountains
O'er the rivers, beside the new streams
Something tells me that I'm going home

Going home when the summer's coming in
And the moonlight on the river
Shows me where I've been
As the train is rolling nearer Ah, the feeling just to be there So…
