On the trail of the old guardhouse at Tas de Geon. Tas = pile or heap, not to be confused with tasse = cup. Geon = Gorse/Furze (thanks Shane)
Here it is marked as a ruin already on a 1914 map.
Fighting through some gorse we found the spot. Note the grey spot where a pile of stones is found, and an oblong outline to the east - an old battery?
Don't expect to find this (1939 photo)...
.. just a rectangular dip in the ground, with some stone walls around 3 sides...
.. and a heap of stones to the north-east of the dip. That's the good thing about a nice day at this time of year, just wade through the dead bracken and brambles and you can get to spots that are too overgrown in the summer.
Les Hurets can be seen from here - at least that one is still standing.
So, not a lot to see here (although it might make for an interesting archaeological dig) but at least we can say we found what looks like the spot.
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!
