Travel theme: Connections

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 🙂
