View from a window..

On some days the view from my office window makes you want to go out there and enjoy the greenery and not be stuck behind a desk :).. But I’m eternally thankful that I work in such a beautiful place!

Sunset at the Seven Lakes

Seven Lakes drive is a road in the Hudson valley in New York state.. As the name implies the route passes by seven lakes in this forested region of the Harriman state park. This picture records sunset at Lake Tiorati.

Barcelona – Black and White

I have been away on vacation in the US for two weeks during which period I have over 600 pictures to process and sift through. It will be some time before those pictures make it to this blog. Therefore, here are some pictures from my trip to Barcelona 3 weeks ago.

On a farm in Cambridgeshire

I chanced upon this piece of farming equipment on a farm in Cambridgeshire last week while on a walk. The paint has peeled away and the equipment is rusty, but I’m sure this is still in use today. If I were to hazard a guess, this is probably used on a tractor to turn the soil, but not being a farmer, this is at best just a guess.

And what about the farm, a panoramic shot with the iPhone below.

Flowers of Ice…

The temperature across East Anglia touched a chilly -6C over the last two nights. Winter is well and truly here in Cambridge. The rapid drop in temperature meant some great opportunities for photography across my place of work. The pictures below are all from my iPhone 4S. As always you can click on the pictures to see and appreciate these flowers of ice.
