Today I was passing by one of my favourite parks (after Brockwell obviously) Ruskin Park 🌳☀️🌃 Where again you can see such an amazing city views from Battersea power station which is more to the left, Palace of Westminster, Elizabeth Tower, BT Tower and more to the left London Eye. To get this shot I did use the Canon again and tweaked it a bit with Enlight Quickshot which works so amazing with pictures taken with digital cameras as well incredible! #DiscoverSnapRepeat
obviously this wasn’t this evening 🤔 but this current bout of murkier weather seems like a good time to dig up a sunset from earlier in the summer: from a lovely evening on the ‘secret’ beach of Tregardock, west of Trebarwith Strand. Surfing for connoisseurs and lots of low tide sand and rocky nooks and crannies: but, like Tregardock, only for a couple of hours either side of low water. And if you want an ice cream...you’ll have to take your own, being careful they don’t melt on the 20min clifftop walk to get down there 🍦
We had a wonderful trip exploring the Peak District. Only a two hour drive north yet it felt completely different than where we live. .
It’s bleak and beautiful patchwork landscape with steep limestone valleys stitched together by miles of stone walls. Dramatic gritstone ridge and the stark moorlands evoke images of Wuthering Heights.. Pride & Prejudice and Princess Bride. One more stunning place to add to the must return list.
Frome is another charming town in Somerset with historic buildings and lovely independent shops where I wanted to buy everything😅 Have you ever been?
What would you pick - the Pink, Yellow or White wonky house? Comment below... I do love tumblin' down traditional properties. Give me Tudor wood beams, slaps of colourful paint and I'm as happy as a chocolate lab in a muddy puddle scoffing a sausage. This is lovely Kersey, Suffolk expertly taken by @loulabelle2015.
I'm typing this whilst suffering from a "man cold." We all know how dangerous those are - so please, keep me in your thoughts during this difficult time. Thank you. Kersey is the quintessential picture postcard village, and the view across the cobbled ford, up the main street lined with thatched and timber framed cottages, to the medieval church that overlooks the village, is an iconic Suffolk sight. First mentioned in an Anglo-Saxon will of about 900 AD, Kersey was already a thriving community at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066. The Domesday Book of 1086 describes the village’s inhabitants and their farming activities and mentions a church “with three acres”. By calculation the population then would have been about 150.
*cough* Have a wonderful evening *splutter* - great shot by @loulabelle2015 *achoo* 🤧 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured? Follow us and then add the tag #photosofbritain and tag us in the picture too! 🇬🇧
Goal for the next 12 months: visit Robin Hood’s Bay in every weather. I only actually spent a few hours here before I had to leave, and lucky for me the weather was gorgeous, but I really wood like to rug up in a room with a view and watch the rain pour down, because I can imagine there is no place more beautiful in the rain. I love walking down empty streets whilst safely under my umbrella, splashing in puddles and listening to the rain pitter patter on all the roofs around. I’d like to find a cosy pub and eat pub chips whilst reading a book, something set 200 years ago so I can dream about going back in time 💖
The first recorded reference to Robin Hood’s Bay was in 1536 by King Henry VIII’s topographer, Leland, who described ‘a fischer townelet of 20 bootes with Dok or Bosom of a mile yn length’. The cliff settlement had grown larger than the inland settlement, probably because they felt more secure from piracy and because it would be more convenient to walk from the boats. By 1540, the village was said to have fifty cottages by the shore (a large settlement at that time) so its thought the present village originated somewhere in the 15th century
Happy Monday 💃

Pretty houses of Painswick in Gloucestershire🏡
Many of the buildings in the town have south-facing attic rooms once used as weavers' workshops as the town originally grew on the wool trade. You can also recognise the typical local Cotswold stone used in construction of most of the towns and villages in the area.
