Rain and wind …

And nothing much else this week. Some days I was reduced to photographing the neighbours i.e. the sheep. It was so bad today, they deserted the higher ground and have probably found shelter near the trees. Other days, I was either in Hexham or walking near Fourstones. Golf and motorcycling seem a distant prospect. On a positive note, the first 100 books (Golf in the Wild – Going Home) have been sold or shipped to retailers.

The lovers at Hexham Pant on Valentine’sDay

Parallel lines – the crossings near Fourstones Papermill Co. Ltd.

In spate – the Tyne at Haydon Bridge.

After the storm – a thorough wash and blow dry.

Nun shall pass – Hexham Abbey.

Bulrushes – between Warden and Fourstones.

An awful day (today, Sunday 20/2) – the field is saturated, the sheep are in hiding and I have not ventured beyond the front door.

      Quite possible – they are not as daft as we think 😉

    Ok, here are my random thoughts/comments. Congratulations on the book sales. Secondly, I had to enlarge that first shot because it looked as if the man was picking his nose when I first saw it. 🙂 Thirdly, I really like the “Nun shall pass” photo not just for the title but for the pops of color. Finally, I liked all the photos and hope that things dry out a bit for you soon. Needless to say, we don’t have similar problems here in Arizona!!

      Thanks Janet – it’s good when the sales come through, but the PR and the packing can be a pain.
      Also thanks for the kind words re the images – yes, it’s reassuring to know he is eating a chip 😀 Not the most romantic image for Valentine’s Day, but the best Hexham had to offer. All the best, R

    It certainly was a wild weekend wasn’t it. Definitely not motorcycling weather!
