Sunset? You ain’t seen nothing yet!

I had my blog for today all lined up…I knew what I was going to write about, I have photos all in a file ready for the off…..

Then I went for a late afternoon walk and knew that I had to follow through on what was before my eyes.

It’s been a pleasant day in terms of the weather, not beautiful, not grim…but somehow it produced the most tremendous sunset. On the walk back I became a little unhinged as I realised I had left my camera at home.

I live up a hill!

I was at the bottom of the hill!

The sunset was slowly and surely going down.


Boy was I puffing when I got home, retrieved my camera and took the shots.

This first photo gives you an overview, the ones that follow give you colour!

Not bad, but wait for the next one.

I did a little zooming and look…..

Cor! Wow! Though I say it myself!

But wait, there’s more….

My oh My!

You up for another? I ran up a hill to get these! Go on….

I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was!

And I think that’s all I have to give to you! After all, I’ve been running up hills this evening…I need a rest!

Hope you like it 🙂

See Ya xx

Conkers re-visited

A few weeks ago I took some photos of conkers and wrote about them. I would now like to re-visit and show you what can happen to the best of us! (And don’t forget to hover over pics.)

The intrepid space conker!

But look what happened after an encounter with the sun!

Ooh-slightly burned and a new appendage has developed!

The next two sets of photos show what happens if you don’t take the doctors advice about sun screen!!

He joined so he could travel!

But he didn’t use Factor 30!

Oh dear!

Now I don’t know if you saw the conker blog, but I had rather a saucy lady conker bending over….

Can you see it?


She too didn’t heed advice on caring for your skin!

Quite an attractive tan though!


And finally, remember Carl Conker who had over-indulged?….

You too could look like this if you have that one drink too many!

Carl several years on….

Think before you take those extra drinks…Cautious Carl the Conker should be your warning!


And that’s all for today!

See Ya xx
