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 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

This is my first foray into the Weekly Photo Challenge on WordPress so hopefully I am doing things right.  The picture is the view across the fields at the back of our house, taken a few winters back.  There is no water – this is a fiddled reflection which is perhaps too obviously achieved in Photoshop.  My only defence for this ‘underhand’ tactic is that it does reflect our current weather in Northumberland – look out there today and it looks exactly the same, bar the water.
