A selection from last weekend at Donington. An eclectic mix of old and new. Highlight of the day was the Mobil 1 liveried Vauxhall Carlton.

Dandelion Clock

Icing Magic

Some more sugarcraft magic from the Fairycake Factory.

Mr Scorpio

Finally up to date with all my processing, time to discover some shots I had overlooked in the past few months.
First up, a captured scorpion I encountered in the south of France.

Slimbridge WWT

Took the opportunity of passing through the south-west to stop at Slimbridge Wetland Centre, which I had visited when I was much younger and had wanted to go back for some time.


On Wednesday I set out for a bit of a challenge on the Mountain Bike. The idea was to try and get to Mam Tor and back. I had toyed with the idea of a 100 mile ride, but have no way of measuring the distance while I am out on the bike.
Despite torrential rain showers and gale force winds, I made it up to Mam Tor and through Edale. Upon getting home I logged my route to discover I had completed 101.46 miles. Feeling pretty exhausted since then though, but the sense of achievement is something that will make me want to do this again.

Tour of Britain

A couple of shots from the second stage of the Tour of Britain, which we went to the Peak District to watch the first categorised climb on view. It was all over in a flash, but I managed to get a couple of shots as the crowds cleared and the riders came into view.

Classic Touring Cars - Cadwell Park

A selection of photo's from last Sunday at Cadwell Park. Beautiful weather and some great racing and machinery on display. Probably my favourite circuit to watch motorsport at in the UK.


My new beast of burden. Cannondale mountain bike, as gifted to me by my beautiful Fiancee.

Uplands Project

Some photos of a garden under restoration that my Dad is working on. Photos were requested to show the stages of development of this Victorian walled garden.
