Another circular walk on Exmoor and this time it’s a classic, or the classic. Up Bossington hill. Starting at the iconic Selworthy Church, which is still periodically coated with a mixture of lime and tallow to protect it from the elements, making the distinctive white building visible for miles around. Up to the top of […]

End of the summer sunsets

Woolacombe sunsets are a photographers dream. Big skies, big beach, big sand dunes and big tides. Foreground interest (usually dogs), mid ground (crashing waves or rocks at combesgate) and background – the magnificent light thrown up as our planet rotates away from the star that gives life to our galaxy. Here are a few of […]

From Prayway to Limecombe

Everyday has been like a bank holiday, and with the mother of all bank holidays; a sunny end of August one, bearing down on us, it was time to leave the village against the incoming hordes and get up on the roof again. Ashcombe up to Prayway head and back down Lime combe to Simonsbath […]

More Moor Meanderings

August 27, 2020

It’s the end of summer and here’s the the way August has played out so far with warm downpours and gusty blows. In-between times there’s been big skies and solitary walks up on the moor. A reminder to all locals that you can escape the traffic jams, the Georgeham double decker bus queue, the Mortehoe […]

Giant Deadly Flamingo Sunsets

Untitled (Giant Deadly Flaming Flamingos)   As lockdown slowly eases, And our splendid isolation is breached. By hordes of infected second-home owners, And their flamingo rings at the beach:  We anxiously await the second-wave of contagion. Not by some valkyrie or eeauch.  But by some  Condescending men with Audis and shorts, coloured peach .   With […]

And I feel fine

As lockdown extends into its sixth week and tensions fray the isolated and fragile mind. As health care professionals die through the ineptitude of government. And we clap to consent to this needless slaughter of the lions led by donkeys. As the media embarrassingly fawns to our leader like they would in North Korea. They forget to […]

Photo essay. Lockdown pictures from a deserted Woolacombe. Time to reflect, space to breathe, reconnecting with nature and getting the garden sorted…..                             Fujifilm!  

Coos on the doorstep, seals in the combe and deer in the quarry.
