Went out with the PhotoBuddies last Thursday (27-06-19) for our second mini road trip, just a few miles from the last one. The weather was just right 22C. – 71F. we haven’t had the heatwave that most of Europe has been experiencing although it did nudge 30C. 86F. on Saturday.
We drove out to Beacon Hill (wiki link), a place I haven’t been to for years.
View From The Beacon
Looking towards Loughborough and Nottingham. A bit of a panorama shot on my Olympus EPL1.
Took this one with my phone.
Beacon Marker and Viewpoint
Another Phone image.
I believe this was carved by a local artist, Peter Leadbeater.
Tree & Rocks
Just liked the natural colours and shapes on these.
According to the information board the rocks on this site are about 600 million years old, some of the oldest exposed rocks in England and Wales, David Attenborough (grew up in Leicestershire) mentioned them in one of his programmes.
That black spec upper left is a Bee !
Black & White
Sit A While
There’s a nice wooded area as you head down towards the car park.
Yet another place to pay a return visit to. I also took an old 6×6 film camera with me. and last night I mixed up some Ilford ID11 developer, I like to leave it for a couple of days so it’s not so fierce. Will probably develop the film on the weekend, hopefully some shots will turn out.
