Away from all the two wheeled shenanigans over Lance Armstrong, Pat McQuaid and Greg Lemond i had the rare opportunity the other day to get away from it all on a week day. Not wasting the chance i headed up to the Lake District at the crack of dawn (actually some time before that) with the aim of getting a few good shots of Coniston at sunrise. The Law of Sod of course dictated that this would be the only spot in the North of England that would be shrouded in fog. Fortunately this soon cleared and i had a rather productive morning behind the lens.
In part two of this adventure i headed down to Blackpool. Now anyone familiar with this town will realise that during the summer it can be something of a culture shock to the civilised human ( i want to use stronger language here but i dont have a good lawyer to hand). In the depths of winter however, and if you stick strictly to the sea front, it is actually quite sexy! Now don’t head up there on my say so because behind the scenes it still leaves a lot to be desired but if you choose your aspects carefully the scenery can be quite rewarding.
Anyway, enough of the arty stuff, its back to the cycle-cross this weekend!
