After watching England beat Tonga 35-3 at the Rugby World Cup, we wondered about going out as it had been raining heavily all morning, but the sun came out early afternoon and so we drove to Roadford reservoir on the edge of Dartmoor.  Roadford Reservoir is a man-made lake, fed by the River Wolf, completed in 1989 as water storage for Plymouth and North Devon.

After a cup of tea at the cafe near the dam we went up to the nature reserve but there was not much to see.

It is quite odd to see roads going down to the water and the remains of trees, which are all that can be seen of the valley that existed here before the dam was built.

Working at home today with a wonderful view from my study window

I love photographing sunsets so was delighted to come across this picture with a great sunset over the Pacific.

Through My Lens

In late December 2018 I had the privilege of joining a friend of mine for an early morning fishing trip. The fish declined to show up, but nature made it worth while with the sunrise.

The River Lym winds its way through the town of Lyme Regis before exiting to the sea in Lyme Regis Bay.

During our walk at Rochester riverside, we saw some strange things buried in the river bed.

just wish they would!

Would you live here?

When Sue and I were in the Olympic Park at the weekend we saw this building. I am not sure how much they assured me it was safe I would want to live in a building with half a floor cut out!
