Moody Monday…. Time to Mow the Roof !


A House at Torshavn, Faroe Islands

It is a Bank Holiday here in the UK…so if you are at a loose end maybe some gardening is the answer. Glad I don’t have to mow our roof!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Eyes


The Eyes have it…. Children’s eyes are nearly always direct, sometime inquisitive more often just relaxed anxious not to miss a trick.

But have you noticed with adults, even when in discussion with someone, eye contact wonders and is limited.

Animals, on the other hand, it is the eyes that make contact lock-on and observe. Even when they move to the periphery the eye, even if its only one eye, it has you fixed in its stare…

 Well that is my contribution to this weeks Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge -eyes. The link to Cee’s Blog is here:-

I Spy with My Little Eye….



Lion Rock, Dove Dale, Derbyshire

Dove Dale one of the most famous of Derbyshire Limestone Dales.  Dissected by the clear waters of the River Dove made famous many centuries ago by the famous fisherman Isaak Walton author of  ” The Complete Angler (1653) “.

That same River carved out the Dale from the Limestone many millennia ago leaving tall cliffs and the rocky outcrops.

The one above is known as ‘Lion Rock’……. now can you spot the Lion’s Head?
