Images of the photographic variety from multiple locations

I mentioned in my last post I’ve been getting around a bit this summer. Here’s a bit more evidence for your eyebuds.

Missions and rewards

In the past three weekends, I’ve done rather a bit of travel within England. Portland, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Cambridge, Coventry and Lancaster have all been on the itinerary. I’ve clocked up more than 2000km of overland travel. It’s been a little tiring, but the weather has been stunning and I can safely say I’m squeezing every drop out of the English summer.

Here’s a picture I took at one of those places.

Different rocks, same objective

Continuing the geological theme of the past few posts, here’s a couple of snaps from Harrison’s Rocks. Sandstone climbing was a totally different experience to Portland’s limestone.

The scenery was much more what I expected of England – dark bouldery crags in a lush green forest.

The beaming afternoon sunshine lightened the mood.

I didn’t climb much due to a sore arm, but this route was too nice to resist.

This weekend is going to involve less on the rocky front and more on the families front, because I’ll be working at the Life festival! I’m not sure which is safer – being suspended from a rope on a cliff, or dealing with a queue of British dads…

Oops

I’ve let things slide a bit here after the Best Jobs campaign madness – unfortunately I didn’t make it into the final 3, but life has rolled on! Here’s a little hint at how I’ve been enjoying the start of the British summer…
