Monday 31 May

Another beautifully sunny day, which saw the mercury at a very pleasant 18C / 64F this afternoon. Went on a stroll round the Castle Grounds earlier on, about 5 miles once more, which took me an hour and a half. The shore path between the Bridge Centre and the Woodlands Centre was closed due to repairs to the seawall, which means you have to divert to Lews Castle - up the hill. As a result, my planned walk round the Creed went counter-clockwise - first to the Iron Fountain, then down the Creed and back along the shorepath. Quite a few other folk out and about who had had the same idea.


  1. I see that like me you wait for 'the other folk' to walk on before you focus the camera on the scene although I am sure you are not as harassed as I am by that unwelcome addition.
    I have yet to take a photograph that was enhanced by the presence of people.
    I am definitely not a portrait photographer.

    I accompanied you by the river and looked up into the trees and wanted to dib my toes into the water that was attempting to surround the strong land that held a golden crown high.

  2.
