I always enjoy the view ahead here (despite the annoyance that someone will nearly always pull out right in front of me, rudely forcing me to slow down)...
.. that lighthouse amongst palm trees and the foreign flag all give a feeling of a rivieria holiday somehow :)
The "English Harbour"...
.. at high tide...
At nearby steps, the shadows from the railings just happened to line up into vertical stripes.
A new toy for someone...
.. who obviously feels that they deserve such extravagance while others struggle to make ends meet. Isn't Human Nature wonderful?
The "Jacques Cartier" heads to mainland France.
More fuel arrives.
New half-a-million fencing goes up to stop the hoardes of airside trespassers who are such a constant problem...
.. and what another load of bollards!
What crazy regulation brought this about? Is it for not encouraging people to loiter within x metres of the runway? No - apparently if this gate becomes redundant then the bollards can go. So why on earth does the gate need a bollard zone?! If it's just to ensure access to the gate, what happens if the access to the bollard zone is blocked? Do they just drive over them in an emergency?
Just an experiment... I will try again when there's better light.
My pics? What can I say... but that there are two types of photographers : artists and recordists. I'm a recordist - for me it's a technical challenge to try to capture what the eye sees, rather than what the imagination sees. I'm no artist.
My camera is good enough for the web, I'm not interested in spending a fortune on DSLR and lenses, mucking about in pic editors, filters and all that malarkey.
I'm also driven to share, publish, and show things to people when they're interested in specific things - like island scenery. If I was into art, I'd despair at just how much there is out there already, and how difficult it would be to find an audience because no-one has time to wade through billions of pretty pictures.
If you want to see what Jersey looks like, then hang around here and I'll do my best to show you. Thanks!
