Desktop Wallpaper: Open Skylight

Open Skylight

This week’s theme is some shots taken at Symonds Yat Rock during the recent August bank holiday.

To end this theme: it was a hot day, and the refreshments hut had a skylight open in a vain attempt to let some of the heat out.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photos as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them. I’ll be back on Monday with some more of my photos from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight.

Desktop Wallpaper: Outside Tap

Outside Tap

This week’s theme is some shots taken at Symonds Yat Rock during the recent August bank holiday.

It was such a hot day that I was half-expecting someone to hook a hosepipe up to this outside tap to start cooling everyone down with it.

Tyre And Wheel

This week’s theme is some shots taken at Symonds Yat Rock during the recent August bank holiday.

Whilst we were eating our lunch at the refreshments hut, my eye was drawn to a 4×4 parked next to the hut. My companions were utterly baffled when I reached for my camera – hopefully now they can see why I did 🙂

Fortified Hilltop Village And Cliffs

This week’s theme is some shots taken at Symonds Yat Rock during the recent August bank holiday.

The walk from the car park up to the refreshments hut took us past this lovely little carving of a fortified hill village and the cliffs below it.

His And Hers Matching Seats

For the August bank holiday, Mrs H and I went over to Symonds Yat Rock with friends for the day, and for this week’s wallpapers, I want to share with you some of the shots I got on the day.

Today, we have matching his and her’s seats, perfect for couples out for a stroll under the trees.

Blue Streak: Panel

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

I’ve blogged about the Blue Stream before, and about how nice it was of the staff to allow me to photograph the far side of it, which is normally out of sight from the rope line that runs through the hangar. Today’s shot – the last of this week – is what visitors usually get to see 🙂

BAC One Eleven: Passenger Seats

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

One of the static displays outside is the BAC One Eleven, and you’re allowed on board to see what British-made air travel looked like in the 1960’s and 1970’s. My eye was drawn to the repeating pattern made by the side of the seats along the main cabinway, and I hope you like it as much as I do.

Concorde: In The Hangar

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

Here she is – one of the most beautiful aircraft to ever take to the skies. It’s such a pity that we’ll never see her fly ever again. Doesn’t she look simply stunning?

Concorde: Cabin - B&W

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

I’ve posted the colour version of this shot before, but looking back at my processed photos I found this high-contrast black and white version, and I kinda like it too.

Extinguisher Below

I hope you had a great weekend. I got to see the Melingriffith Water Pump in action, which was a real treat for me. You’ll know if I was successful bagging a few shots of it, as it’ll turn up as a wallpaper theme soon 🙂

But before then, I have some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

Today’s shot is, if memory serves, one of the panels by the front door on the Boeing 707, just behind the cockpit. We had to cram into the small space and wait until the cockpit was free for us to shoot, so whilst we were waiting I snagged this shot.
