My grandmother brought this back as a souvenir/birthday present. It was immediately banished to my bedroom so I don’t have to look at it but something this beautifully tacky had to be immortalised somehow.

The water looked so clean and clear. It was a little tempting, until I thought about the annual “kids drown in quarry” stories I hear in the news.

I wanted to ask the kids that were camping in the tent if I could get a photo, but then I realised how sketchy that would appear.

Really great photos! Quick question, what dslr + lens were you using for that last photo. The hillside flower by the lake. Thanks
Thank you very much! I used a Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor 35mm f1.8 prime lens. I also had a £2 circular polariser screwed on. Hope this helps!
All that’s left of the tracks that used to carry big buckets filled with mined out rubble up to the mine tip, I think.
Went back to Bentinck Pit Tip to try and get a particular shot that I noticed on a walk a few days prior. I wasn’t able to achieve that particular one, but I got some other photos I’m happy with.
Bought a Shiny Black Tile to play with while I was at the hardware store buying paint.
A casualty of today’s gardening, if you call grabbing a pair of shears and hacking down anything over six inches tall “gardening”.
More practice with off-camera flash.
Had to stop at a random village pharmacy to soothe our various ailments so I took this in the car park. Composition isn’t ideal but any lower and I would’ve had the dashboard in the frame.
Shot from the passenger seat of my mother’s car on a very dull drive. There were some fantastic cloud formations, though.
