Day tripping Lundy dreaming

May 26, 2017

Maytime, the early boat from Bideford, despite getting up at minus-saturday to make the 8am sailing you are rewarded with a few extra hours of island time. The weather, the fresh late spring easy and an Lundy first timer all make for a magical encounter, these shots from the full frame and standard lens have […]

Big Moon Tibbetts

March 20, 2017

Big spring moon and tides for the first trip of the year to Lundy and a few moonscapes to challenge an addled brain. Here’s Tibbetts underneath a big shiny moon while it was inhabited full of lunatics.   Sunset over Pondsbury. Golden grasses. Rabbit scull dream.   Marisco Tavern at moonrise. Moonrise from the Gents […]

Summer Shades of Tibbetts

Regular visitors to this blog will already know that Tibbetts lookout on Lundy’s second highest point is one of my favourite places on planet earth. The old admiralty signalling station, built of granite in 1909 and bereft of modern conveniences might not be the most remote place in Britian but it feels like it. The […]

A Perfect Antidote ..
