As we travel, we make connections all the time. There is a connection with my previous post – when I climbed in the car and took this series of phone images the route was inevitably the one I use out of habit nearly every day.
There is a connection with one of my followers who uncannily observed that this road would be “precarious if icy” – suddenly it is there the next morning, an Olympic, winter sports grade, skating surface.
When I arrive at my destination, there is the wind turbine with the sun rising over the hill behind – it has a connection to the National Grid although on a day like this, what’s the point.
Golf is all about connections – hands to club, club to ball, ball to hole….or ball to rough, never to be seen again.
There is the connection with another recent post – More notes from the Madhouse – you have to be slightly unhinged to play golf in these conditions, some might say at all. Finally, to make one final connection – in answer to the question, Golf? What’s the story?……sorry Mark, I haven’t a clue 🙂
All images taken on a Samsung SII smartphone and then over-saturated in Photoshop 🙂
Cheers for the pingback/trackback/piggyback it is much appreciated. Your photos make golf seem more appealing with these beautifully dramatic long shadows.
No problem Mark, all in a good cause. Allendale is a small and very friendly club (check trousers banned but jeans ok 🙂 ) in an absolutely spectacular setting – you may yet be converted 🙂
That photo of the sunset (sunrise) with the sheep is fantastic – surreal and bucolic at the same time. I caught your mention of my blog…thanks, Robin!
No problem Julie – your predictive meteorological powers deserve recognition 🙂
Golf is a great sport. 🙂
Particularly on ice 🙂
What fun! I’m not a golfer or an ice skater but I liked your photos. 🙂
Very wise on both counts 🙂
Lovely post with lovely images!
Thanks Malin, it was a grand morning 🙂
