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 discovered on Sunday that rock formations offer a much wider, and cooler, selection of angles than I’d expected for photography…

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…
