Went to Mow cop for sunrise this morning. The Castle was built as a summerhouse in 1754. It was built to look like part of a castle and would have enhanced the view of Rode Hall some 3 miles away.

I have added 3 photos to the ST-Photo section and 12 on the Mow Cop Page

An old rusty padlock on the gate post of Jenks Chapel. Not sure how long its been there but the church dates from 1733, so maybe not as long as the gate post.

Audi TT

Fuji S9500

Managed to get a drive in the new Audi TT Roadster, All I can say is Wow!! It was the 2.0 TFSI 200 PS 6 speed and is slightly rapid, to say the least. I always fancied a BMW Z4 after driving one last year but this takes the top spot now.

Managed to get a few photos as well :o)

Sunset retry No5

Last night, I tried some sunset shots in the local fields, its the 5th try in the last week or so and the best so far. Its a 15 minute walk from home so you have to be there to "see" if its a good sunset or not. The stone circle is not an ancient monument but it adds some forgound interest.

Sunset try No1

Decided to try some sunset shots today at the local stone circle. The sunset was not that colourful but it takes 15 minutes to walk there, so You had to be there to see it was not good.

Oh well I will try again soon.
