Postcard from Anglesey

   A little iPhone + Snapseed playtime…Janet and I are enjoying a short break on Anglesey this week, exploring a few sections of the coastal path. This is the lighthouse at Penmon Point, with Puffin Island beyond. A magical spot! This is also an experiment- it’s the first time I’ve posted straight from my phone using the WordPress app. We’ll see what happens…

Summer has arrived in South Cumbria

Rambling through the delightful hill and dale scenery of the southern Lake District the other day I chanced upon the tiny hamlet of Grassgarth, near Ings, and this typical image of the English summer. Whilst the east of the country is suffering rain and cold winds, the west is enjoying ‘flaming June’ in all its summer glory. The frothy, semi-natural vergeside planting and cosy-looking cottages set off by Clematis montana scrambling through the garden hedge made me feel that summer has well and truly arrived. The hot sunshine helped too! The question is (as ever)…will it last? A simple iPhone shot – I tend to leave the SLR at home and travel light when I’m out walking with friends.
