Beamish Museum WW1 Transport ~ Part 2

Part 1 HERE We came across a lot of horses, and people whilst we wandered around the museum The 17th Lancers (Duke of Cambridge’s Own) was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, raised in 1759 and notable for its participation in the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. These chaps were acting the part.   They also had a WW1 canteen up and running   All images can be embiggened by clicking on them, where they look much bigger. And better. 😀 Stay tooned more to come. 🙂 SaveSave

Beamish Museum ~ WW1 ~ Horses Edition ~ April 2018 ~ part 1

In April 2016 Sophie and I went along to the WW1 Vehicles & Steam fair at Beamish Museum.  On checking their website we found that this year they were doing horses of WW1.  The horses were not 100 years old of course, but there were people were all dressed up in period costume and showing how horses were used back then, so off we went to ride the trams and take photo’s of everything. The Circle is our favourite tram, and Sophie and I really want to sit on the balcony bit at the top there, but so far we…

Rising Sun Country Park ~ November 2017 ~ part 1

Although Autumn was just about over, and the temperature wasn’t that great, Sophie and I decided to wrap up warm and go for a walk around the Rising Sun Country park. There’s 162 hectares of nature reserve with ponds, woodlands and extensive grasslands; a farm and Countryside Centre, so we figured there’d be enough to point our cameras at.  No history lessons today, just a gentle walk to see what Mother Nature leaves for us when summer is over.                         half way round and there we’ll stop and have a…

Day 217~366

We had sunshine for a few hours today before the howling wind and rain fell upon us this evening, so this afternoon I sallied forth to the coast at South Shields, with the fuji, in search of colour. But I found horses too! and my shot of the day. Red, yellow and blue In traditional color theory (used in paint and pigments), primary colors are the 3 pigment colors that can not be mixed or formed by any combination of other colors. All other colors are derived from these 3 hues.

Day 170~366

Going to have to do 2 posts this evening as I didn’t get chance to sort all the photo’s out last night.  Yesterday we got a break from the rain (for 1 day!) and so Phil and I went down to South Shields beach so I could do a photo. I had a certain one in mind but when I got there we saw these beautiful horses being given some play time in the sea, and I just took pictures of them and the beach!  Keeping in mind reflections but I did get carried away with the horses.  Here they…
