Lone plane over Windsor

Lone plane over Windsor

If you live anywhere north of London it seems you’re in the flight path of one airport or another. Windsor, despite having a great big castle, is no exception and a number of flights flew over in the few hours we spent in the town.

Public Seating

Public Seating

Plastic seats outside a house, near yesterday’s home I think.

We went for a walk this evening by the reservoir in Inniscarra and I got some nice shots of my family and of the setting sun over the water. Unfortunately when I got home a number of shots were corrupted. I’m not sure why or how, but I’ll have to set aside some time this week to test the card. It’s brand new, only bought a few months ago when I bought the Canon 40D. Grrr.

My Home from Home

My Home from Home

What do you do when you get home from holiday? Put a clamp on the wheels of your caravan! I could make a joke about cleaning the wheels of their home, but that’s an obvious one and I’m in a hurry tonight. Got a surprise birthday party to go to soon!

Shot somewhere near Slough in the UK, I think. Matt was driving and took a wrong turn or two not that I’d have known any different!

Windsor Leaves

Windsor Leaves

Down by the river in Windsor the ground was littered with autumn leaves and served as a perfect foreground for someone else’s castle..

That was a great idea of Matt’s to head down that direction!

Terminal 1 at Heathrow

Terminal 1 at Heathrow

Terminal 1 at Heathrow, just before we parked. Thanks Matt and Mary for a great few days!

Matt bought himself a shiny new Sony A200 on Saturday. It has built in image stabilisation that really helped when I took some shots inside a pub in Eton. If you’re on the look out for a very reasonably priced entry level DSLR I can recommend the Sony A200.
