Hi Martin,

400 posts so far on this topic, well done :D

Back in the days of film cameras some would have used a perpective control lens to keep the National Trust's posts vertical although you could also do it at the printing stage with a tilting film holder and masking frame. Bit easier these days though.

The care taken in the execution of the dog gate is pleasing. Just hope there aren't any overweight dogs round those parts :?

Rob

Thanks Rob. I remember tilting the masking frame on the enlarger, and fiddling with bits of blu-tack under the negative holder to tilt it back into focus. Never got it to work very well. :(

That one was accepted on RP, see:

It's a shame that after asking for up to 4K resolution, Mike has now taken to resampling them down to 720p, since introducing the mobile App.

cheers,

Martin.

Thanks Richard.

Note also that the church is alongside but not part of the English Heritage/Witley Court attraction, so there is no admission charge, and the garden tearoom is a non-profit in aid of church funds:

Rapeseed must be a profitable cash-crop judging by the way this part of the world turns yellow at this time of year. Is this lot going into margarine, or biodiesel?

Martin,

It's not just in your neck of the woods that goes yellow, a fair bit of Devon does too!

Around my way it's meadow buttercups on Chpping Sodbury Common. On the better grass land they are out now in patches with dandelions. But I wait for one large area of poor scrubland which doesn't get grazed by the cattle on the common. There the meadow buttercups can grow to 12" - 15" and on a good year the area is transformed into a sea of yellow in June. The last good year was three years ago and I hope that this year might be one again.

Jim.

Whilst looking for some other pictures this morning I came across pictures of the meadow buttercups which I had forgotten I had taken.








The area is about one mile north of Chipping Sodbury - the upper picture is facing due north-ish towards the Cotswold scarp and the lower facing due south-ish towards Sodbury and Yate.   Here's a link to the area in Google Maps.

My legs said they didn't want a long walk two days in a row, so today I took myself to Arley station on the SVR and sat in the sunshine in the picnic garden to eat my lunch. It's a beautifully kept station:








I know that signal well. 57 years ago I visited Arley station on my bike. That was at the end of BR days, when the station was semi-derelict. Traffic on the line was down to a bare minimum, although the coal trains from Alveley Colliery continued for a few more years. After poking about in the yard, I climbed that signal -- as any self-respecting 14-year-old boy would do. The station seemed to be deserted, so I was a bit surprised when a formidable woman appeared from the station house and gave me a good telling off. :)

Nowadays kids playing on the railway line is treated far more seriously. I suppose it's progress.

Years later James Boyd explained to me that climbing a signal perfectly illustrated the difference between Britain and Ireland. In Britain you got a telling off for trespassing, in Ireland you got a telling off because the post wasn't safe.

Martin.

Looks like a model railway, even down to the correct colours of the station furniture, and the bridge disguising the exit to the fiddle yard!

Was at the site of another station on Friday, Strata Florida, where the line out over Tregaron Bog is now part of the Ystwyth Trail.

Walking on Clee Liberty earlier this week. The sunshine was a bit hazy for most of the day, but the visibility improved in the evening.
