The Town from Castle Sod

The Town from Castle Sod

 

Not been myself lately.

This photo was taken on the Wednesday when I went out early to capture the 95% solar eclipse.

It never happened….

The actual eclipse occurred two days later on the Friday…..

……. I went out early on the Friday.

It was cloudy…

Don’t you find that time slips out of phase, some days?….

 

 

Checking the Reservation

Checking the Reservation

 

The first requisite when travelling by train in India is to check the reservation that’s been pasted on the side of the carriage. Simple but efficient.

 

 

Candolim Morning

This was taken on my first visit to India. I used to go out from the hotel at dawn and walk through the forest. I think that this was when I fell in love with the country. Perhaps you can see why.

From way back in ’97 comes this magical scene from the Hampi World Heritage Site. I sheltered from an afternoon downpour in that small temple while a shepherd was singing to his goats as they went tinkling past. Later I explored the landscape in the company of two German girls and we had to leap a fast flowing stream because there was no bridge. Those girls must be in their forties now. How time flies…….

That day in Kochi was a day to remember and the photo opportunities made it so memorable.

 

 

No Fly Zone

A grass verge near Auchencairn. That says it all. No more winging through the air. How sad.
