In case of a sudden increase in import duty on Belgium medicinal beer, I thought I better stock up...

Start looking for Monasteries closer to home that can produce very strong beer that tastes ok... and it's a shame because there used to be plenty before Henry the 8th got his knickers in a twist. 

Bloody religion and politics.....have a lot to answer for...

Anyway here's an update on stock levels.

I'm trying to identify the track in the thread below but I've posted it here as well as there's one piece of camera work in the film that may be of interest to those on this thread. It's from 3.35 to 4.00. To be filming through the bottle in 1969, impressed me.

Just visited a hidden gem of horticulture in North London as advised to by my son whose stated doing an Arborist qualification at the Collage .

Capel Manor in Ealing .. 

Spectacular with lots of variations of gardens for the visitors as that’s where they experiment in garden design .

Pictures taken this past weekend , so imagine when it really starts to bloom.

And the garden full of ruins , well , they can all be bought and rebuilt in your stately mansion for maybe the cost of a couple of copies of The Sweets .

A rather uninspiring looking car in my opinion, but regardless of such, an unusual sighting in Redhill, Surrey. It's a Chevrolet.

Out with the camera and on the bike today - two things that don't happen enough on their own or in tandem (deliberate pun!). Headed to the Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam woods) to visit Bloesempark (Blossom Park) where the cherry trees are presently in full, glorious bloom.

It might have been an early afternoon on a Wednesday, but that didn't stop the place being absolutely packed with visitors who clearly had the same idea as me. 

Here are a few pics...

With a desperate need to get away from the thronging crowd that was enjoying the short-lived blossom, I took a cycle to a couple of favourite spots in quieter parts of the woods. By this time the light was pretty bad (photographically speaking), but I still managed to get a few reasonable shots.

That said, half of these pics are heavily cropped as the subjects were just too far away for the limited range of my Nikkor 55-300mm lens. That aside, it was, I have to say, a very enjoyable day out on two wheels - and long overdue. I just hope my legs aren't like jelly tomorrow as there's a record fair in Amsterdam I'm hoping to get to (but not by bike).

Great crested grebe

Frog (sorry, can't be any more specific than that)

Great spotted woodpecker

How much of the Amsterdam woods looks...

_DSC6133-web.jpg.b9ef4293aa8193c9e9bd4719edde6d03.jpg

A distant egret spotted on the journey home after I cautiously squeezed between two highland cows that were blocking the narrow cycle path (I braved it - although a man much younger than I didn't have the nerve and headed back on his bike the way he came, which would have resulted in something like a 5km detour). Just behind the farm buildings is the outer perimeter of Schiphol Airport.

Cheers, Steve. It's definitely been a long time. Really enjoyed it - both the photo taking and the cycling. I really need to get out more for the sake of my health. At the back end of last year I developed a major thrombosis in my leg. Being too sedentary for too long and not doing exactly what I did today lies at the heart of that.

But now the brighter weather is here, there's no excuse... :thumbsup:

Saturday  Mars, 30 I was watching the 6th stage of the "Volta Ciclista a Catalunya", starting in my hometown, Valls:

When I see those modern bikes… my old Colnago - Campagnolo bike seems pure archeology! 😥😥

Fully recovered, I hope. Just out of idle curiosity, did the hernia come about as a result of the monstrous sized lenses you lug around? 🤔😜

Russell.  You missed out the 4 ft 7 inch height which makes the lens as big as Martyn

There was a slightly elusive one at Pennington flash but I never got round to seeing it. Managed to get a few pictures of a female Wheatear but from a massive distance 300 metres plus. 500 mms lens with a X2 converter doesn't do the bird justice.  Don't think they're good enough to publish on here. Will have a look when I've downloaded them from the camera

Another geological wonder: winter in the "Ciudad encantada" ("Enchanted City") in Cuenca. Erosive process on stones with different resistance results on very peculiar forms (natural bridges, windows,…). In many picks my wife serves as a "graphic scale"… 🙂 (she can feel "used"…)
