Rapeseed oil field and electricity cables, Devon, England, UK

Rapeseed oil field and electricity cables, Devon, England, UK


This was taken during the last hour or so of light in the day, and I was cycling back to my campsite. The air was so still cycling through the rolling hills, and for the most part when I am cycling along narrow countrylanes I don’t see photo compositions appear in front of me.

But when I do see a potential composition I will always stop, and this was one such moment…

It’s interesting though, because I was actually hoping for the spectacular sunset…that wonderful golden hour light….but clouds had rolled in and obscured any colour or vibrancy…

I was still inspired though, to stop and take this shot, which just appeared out of nowhere as I trundled along.

Now, having ignored it for a while and now eventually post-processing it, I quite like it, far more so than I liked it at the time….so it’s interesting that what I saw on the road at the time…which I then didn’t see back home on the computer….and then did see after I had a go at post processing it…

Photography inspiration works in mysterious and unique ways…that’s all that I can conclude from all this!

Anyway, after all that…here it is for all to see…

Countrylane near Devizes, Wiltshire

Countrylane, near Devizes, Wiltshire


Sunset along a country lane…

This is another view taken on a bicycle, just ambling through the country lanes, avoiding the large roads…and it’s as if no one live in the UK!!

These country lanes are always empty of traffic and are heaven for a cycletourist…and then every now and then a view presents itself, like this one….and that makes photography very easy.

Even if you saw a view in a car whilst whizzing around this bend….would you have stopped a car to take the picture? I can only say that I probably wouldn’t…this view is not spectacular enough to stop, park, get out….blah blah blah…too much hassle..! But not on a bicycle….stopping to take a photograph is a very nice excuse to stop and have a rest, as well as take in the atmosphere and just breathe in the fresh air……

My Paradise…

Photography and words by
View across Lake Ohrid, Macedonia View across Lake Ohrid, Macedonia

This shot is a dusk shot looking towards mountains in Albania. I am on the Macedonian side of Lake Ohrid. I made this trip a few years ago, but thought I’d post it here for the Photofriday challenge, which this week is ‘paradise’.

For me, this image represents a kind of paradise as I was on a cycle touring trip around Europe, and I love cycletouring. This is a photograph looking across to Albania into the mountains where I would be cycling through over the following days. It’s these moments when I rest in a town or village that I look forward to more cycling adventures to come…..

I have a few more images from this evening here
