Latest photos - Team Choice
My Latest Photos are from our recent Holiday
(Vacation) to Ireland.
My Header is The Giants Causeway,
which once joined Ireland to Scotland.
The story goes that the 2 Giants built the Causeway so they could fight each other --
Google The Giants Causeway for the full story.
My Header
What a real delight to see these stones and their shapes and how they seem to make the steps so you can walk across them - Pure Magic - Natures Magic of cause, simply Awesome. 
 More from the Causeway

We were very lucky as when we arrived there were only a hand full of folk there, as the time passed and we had to leave, you could not move for folk.

Julie and I
Putting  the Causeway in Perspective

This scene is on the little road that leads down to the Causeway, the rock formation on the right is whats called The Camel.

If you haven't visited Ireland before, then you really are missing out on such a Green and Pleasant Land - for all its Beauty.
Here is just a taste of Ireland







The Coastline in all its Glory
The Green and Pleasent Land -
OK - Plenty of rain, but thats what makes Ireland so Beautiful - as there are lots of times the sun shines to.

Rain brings Beautiful Rainbows

Plus - When the Sun Rises, you just know, that its a wonderful day.


Ireland is famous for its weaving and spinning too.

Also all the little Beautiful cottages around, and there are some wonderful Large Houses too, dotted around the outskirts of the Towns.

Trim Castle
Where the chart topping Film Braveheart was filmed - Ireland.
I just love wondering around Castles and all their alley ways and Passages.
Not forgetting the Ghosts of Trim Castle
I didn't notice until I loaded my photos up to my iMac that I had captured this Ghostly Coloured Orb floating around Trim Castle - what a magical feeling - I really had a cold shiver down my spine when I saw this.

BUT

What is Ireland MOST famous for??
Its Music - such Great Feeling and energy - be it a slow story or one with a fast beat that gets your feet tapping and hands clapping.

Where's this happening?
Why - its the Traditional Irish Pub, and what do they sell? 
Their Whisky - by the barrel load ------
AND
What you can not get any where else in the World
Because it cannot Travel

Irish
Guinness

Guinness is sold all around the World
BUT - BUT - BUT
Not like the 
IRISH GUINNESS.

Just before  we finish
I Did Not Want  to Leave
IRELAND.

Thats yer Lot.

Please go to my side bar - near my shield and visit the other HEADBANGERS and see their showing of Latest Photos

GOOD LUCK.

Odd Shots by Kathy

I remember ODD SHOTS by Kathy'
Its amazing how many folk publish Odd shots 
these days, certainly caught on right through  the internet.
My Odd Shots are a mixture, but none have been played with, some you all will know what they are and some you won't, but I am going to let you all into the secret of how they happened to be
 Odd-shots.

My Header - plain and simple one.
Odd (sock) Shot.
On Holiday(Vacation) @ St Ives in Cornwall
Less packing causes us to wash out our socks and unmentionables, 0oopps
we seem to have an Odd Sock up there.
(just knew this photo would come in handy somewhere),lol - wonder where the other sock is hiding??

Post Odd Shots
Well - certainly Odd Shot this one!
Tis but a crab on its back.
Poor thing was dead, but before anything found  and ate it - I photographed it.



Still on their backs
Not often you find (this Odd Shot) a dog sunbathing on its back, with its tail being washed over with the waves,lol.


Odd Clock Shot
On Southwold Pier, The clock works by water, lol
Most fascinating watching it work.


A walk through Clumber Park, and we found this Odd Shot, not often you have to climb a tree for a restful sit or lay down - is it?.

Beach Odd Shot
In the Land of forgotten Creatures? 
Found on a beach in Scotland??
Don't ask, Don't know,lol.
Your Guess-is as good as mine,lol….


A pair of Wellies, found left on a wall.
ODD SHOT
Wellies from Wales.


Odd Shot - found in a shop.
Must have been a VERY NAUGHTY PERSON,lol
You certainly don't know where  and when you are going to come across an Odd Shot? 

Now for the hard ones -

Just a stack of Blue Tubbing,

Waiting to go under ground to carry 
Electrical wires.
Simplesss…

Now for my last ODD SHOT
Let your mind wonder ----
Have you ever photographed a Space Ship before??
ODD SHOT - WOW
Just Stare and look at those Stars through the hollow centre
of this Space Ship!!
Can you see this Space Ship Hovering???

Melting by Lew

My Header
Melting Wax
A few years ago we went to Julie's step Daughters Wedding. These Candles were on a window ledge and thinking these would look great in a photo.
I really love this photo for the Light, and the Melting Wax.

Now onto Melting snow and ice.
Melting Glacier in Norway.
Julie taking a photo of the Glacier, once, not sooo long ago we would have been under the ice, as its continuing Melting bit by bit day by day.
It was a wonderful sight to see. Far below, in the valley it was raining - while up here, the sun was shining.

At Home - in the Garden we have from a couple of years ago Melting Ice on a plant.
Reminds me of a little creature, don't you think?

Some years ago we had a short break up in North Yorkshire on the Moors, while there - the snow and ice were Melting
On the way to our Log Cabin for a week.

Woke up the 1st morning and found this footprint, wildlife.

One of many little Villages on the Yorkshire moors, with the snow melting.

On the Moors, early evening, sun going down and the Melting still goes on.

Puddles and running water everywhere Snow Melting and covering the roads as the cars drive through making a big splash.

Back Home - along Grantham's Canal the frost is beginning to Melt as a family is out walking their dog.

The sun is out and beginning to Melt the ice on a lake.

Couple of hours later, the ice is well and truly Melting on the Lake, guess the ol ducks are happy now.

Funpost
Kids around the lake having fun, picking the sheets of ice up and thowing them across the lake to shatter the ice to help the process of
MELTING.

Thats yer lot Folks.
pop across to my side bar - near my shield - and visit the other HEADBANGERS  and see what they have in store for your delight of Lew's theme of MELTING

GOOD LUCK
