What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the daylight fading and reflecting the last of its colour in the River Loire.

The anchor is part of a display commemorating the former ship-building industry in the area around Cosne-sur-Loire in the Nièvre department of central France.

A slow drive through the Peak District on a bright December day was just what the doctor ordered yesterday and I stopped a few times to take pics… Leash Fen is just inside the eastern border of the National Park and an area I’ve never really explored before but I’m planning a return visit as soon as possible.

On St Andrew’s Day… The Kelpies, November 2018

Wishing my friends and readers north of the border a safe and happy St Andrew’s Day 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I’ll be having a wee dram on your behalf tonight…

Love them or loathe them, the The Kelpies (designed by sculptor Andy Scott) have quickly become Scottish icons since their opening to the public in April 2014.
