Now I'm not used to this "Blagging " sorry Blogging lark, but as im on holiday from work this week I thought Id try this out.
As some of you may be aware I live in Cornwall..... the pointy bit at the bottom of the map, and I have a feeling some may have picked up on this by some of my posts In a nutshell this is because they charge me 1.00 to go into England to take photographs over the Tamar bridge.
So to yesterdays outing.....I went down west in search of the fabled treacle mines, alas all I found was some old buildings with chimneys and no Dick van dyke impersonating a cockney sweep Seriously though I do love the old mine workings and would like to be able to portray how they affected the landscape of this county.
Today I had the company of my lovley assistant Lisa on a trip to the coast just North of Tintagel to look for a place called Rocky Falls. As you can see from todays posts, somebody really put a lot of thought into the name We had a great time scrambling over wet slates and I was always looking for the killer shot, at one point I was scrambling down a wet bit of grass slope to hear those heartfelt words "You Becareful"'ve guessed it, one Mike sliding on ones a**e to the precepice, mud up one's side of leg and a wet derriere. But hey like a pro I held the equipment to the sky and they only damage was spending the rest of the walk with ones assistant saying "I told you to be careful".
So tomorrow I am of out alone.............oh goody no late start, lunch in a local pub, and i dont have to say "just one more and we will go back to the car"

    Lesser Spotted Wife

    Here is a rare image of the "Lesser Spotted Wife" at rest on cliffs near Tintagel. This rare bird is not seen very often and is known to be difficult to photograph due to its shyness. This beauty which I think is of the sub genus "Domesticus" could only be viewed from a distance as any approach with image capturing equipment can cause the bird to take flightfor the cover of nearby rocks whilst simultaniously emitting a warning cry that sounds like "goway-goway"

    Please note: No wife was hurt or caused any undue stress in the taking of this Photo
