That-a-way!

Yesterday while taking a lunchtime walk around Hinxton, I came upon this glove hanging off a hedgerow in the middle of nowhere! It seemed to be pointing to the way I must take!

Stalked UFOs amongst us!

Continuing with the fungal theme, here’s one I thought looked a lot like a flying saucer on a stalk (maybe eating them may have that effect!). Or one of those rides in a fairground. I’m not sure of the exact mushroom type but this may be a sort of milkcap.

A teeny tiny mushroom!

The rain and the damp here in East England has meant that there is a sudden explosion of mushrooms. Large and small, normal and strangely shaped, they’re all shooting up everywhere.. Here’s a tiny tiny mushroom that was shot at the closest approach I could make with my phone! I have selectively desaturated the background for emphasis.

Brandenburg Gate

A potent symbol of Germany and a poignant reminder of the Cold War and the division of a nation after the Second World War. For over 28 years, the Brandenburg gate was behind the wall in East Berlin.

Immediately after the war, one of few structures that remained standing amongst the ruins of Berlin was the Brandenburg Gate.

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.
