Day 174~366

My work has led to me visiting Cumbria almost weekly, a long drive but with stunning scenery, especially if doing the A66 through the mountain ranges, going by Lake Bassenthwaite and Skiddaw mountain over to Cockermouth, Workington & Whitehaven.  I’ve taken a fair few photographs along the way over the past 2 years.  Today was my last journey over there, and because I ended the day in Penrith had 3 choices of routes to come home. The A66, the less scenic A69, or the A686 across the pennines, a road I’ve only done the once, way back.  I remembered a…

Day 74~366

Over to Cumbria again today, and with lovely sunshine and blue skies, I took my shot of the day on the way home and also on the way home stopped to see the mountains, (which I like better than the shot of the day, but mountains are not square 🙂 ) couldn’t resist a little B&W That’s all folks 🙂

Day 47~ 366

Had to work in Cumbria again today, 7 hours driving in total, so a tiring day. I didn’t have time really to stop and do good photo’s but I pulled off on the A66 to get a shot of the bit of sunlight that was shining on the snowy mountain. That was it as far as sunshine went! Loved the sky today though, interesting clouds for most of the day.

Day 41~366

I got home really late from work yesterday, as I had my last appointment at 4pm in Seascale, which is on the west coast of Cumbria, and a 3 hour drive home for me. Then had dinner, did more work bits, and was too knackered to do a post. But I did take a couple of pictures on my travels westward.  Hard to choose between the house and the horse for the daily shot, think the house is slightly better composition so I’ll go with that one. This first shot was taken in the morning on my way over to…

The Sunday Fraggle report

Well I missed last Sunday as I only had 4 pictures, and as a result have now got too many, so lots to look at this week 🙂 The weather has not been kind, but I have had some long journeys to see clients, so have come across some quite lovely views, and my little Nikon S1 has been doing a cracking job. Last week I went to North Yorkshire again, and the sun was arguing with the clouds to see who would win out. On my way back I went through a village called Ravensworth and came across this…

Zoom

The reason I don’t nourish my blog so much these days is because of the long hours I work, and the zooming around I do all over the North of England.  The past 2 days have been spent in the North West, in the beautiful Lake District, where the autumnal colours are really vibrant and the Lake District is a sight for sore eyes, even if I am zooming past them at 70 MPH! I got chance today to stop and take a couple of pics, and appropriately using  my 28-300mm zoom lens to get a shot of the little…
