Back by unpopular demand, now that I've managed to link thumbnails rather than full images I've trawled through the archive in search of a few more random photos from the last five years or so.

These were taken in the graveyard at Beckford's Tower, the burial place of the writer William Beckford (1760-1844), just outside Bath. They were taken on a brilliantly clear, gloriously sunny spring morning and the originals are a vivid blue and green and pin sharp, but I was playing about with Paintshop Pro one day aiming for a grainy, sepia-toned, nineteenth century daguerrotype gothic-y sort of feel. It was almost jolly while I was there: on a cold, wet and gloomy December afternoon just before dark the place must be incredibly atmospheric. I must go back

Thank you - as madam pleases  

A brief trip to the West Country a couple of years ago - the Roman Baths in ... well, Bath (that particular bit of water now incredibly dangerous, I learnt):

 

The Royal Crescent:


The nave of Wells Cathedral:


The appropriately-named owl-eyed strainer arches:

 



Glastonbury Tor:



A small part of the Chalice Well at Glastonbury, easily one of the loveliest and most peaceful places I've ever been:

 
   

An extremely friendly robin at the beautiful Chalice Well who came and sat by me (almost at my shoulder) for a good fifteen minutes:

St Michael's Tower:
