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.

An image from one of my first colour rolls developed by Analogue Wonderland’s new ‘Wonderlab’

They certainly won’t be the last rolls I send them though… lovely clean negatives (albeit sleeved in strips of four, I prefer strips of six) and excellent scans make me a very happy bunny!

Development and scan by Analogue Wonderlab with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

A quick pic from the (digital) archives today… it popped up while I was looking for something else and as it was taken ten years ago today I thought I’d include it!

Weybourne Hope is where the shingle spit of Blakeney Point meets the North Norfolk cliffs and there is an old saying that refers to the deep inshore water here that would allow ships to unload troops and stores here in the event of an invasion.

‘He who would all England win, should at Weybourne Hope begin’

I do like a bit of industrial grot! 😁

A tenacious clump of Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber) helps frame this image of the Royal Tweed and Royal Border Bridges.

The four-arch Royal Tweed Bridge is constructed from reinforced concrete and was opened in 1928. The more famous Royal Border Bridge was built to carry the York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway over the river and opened in 1850, it still forms part of the East Coast Main Line between London King’s Cross and Edinburgh Waverley stations.
