A view along a snowy track towards the village of Cholsey. This is a stitch photo I took a while ago. The track is an old Roman road that went through the village once and used to lead to common land until the railway came through, it now leads to Silly Bridge.

The Afon Marteg is the river you see flowing through the valley here, the photo is taken from the rail embankment that forms the bridge over it. The Marteg flows from here and joins up with the Wye.
The hill with the plateau in the distance I think is called Moelfryn.

You may find this hard to believe but just over 52 years ago a railway ran by this river in Wales, it's just below the dark green conifer trees behind an embankment. It was closed in 1961 in the Beeching cutbacks.
I took this photo of a bunch of daffodils five years ago outside the building I worked in they used t be a welcome sight in the spring.

The Emprie strkes back
This dish is on the Rutherford campus where I work and it part of the space science program, it moves around periodically to a different position but on this occasion it reminded me of an Ion Canon from the film the Empire strikes back.

Hard at work
It's a miserable rainy morning here today so I thought a colorful picture to brighten the morning up. A bee hard at work collecting pollen from a flower in our garden.

Fairmile at Night
Only drove past the place tonight and it's all lit up so it seemed rude not to get a photo.

The Old Ferry Landing
Ferry Lane in Cholsey where there was once a ferry that went across the river Thames to where I am stood on the Littlestoke side. In the distance you can see new housing at the former Fairmile Hospital.

Uncle To Cobbly and All

New and Old
The old building at Fairmile Hospital with the New flats that have been built opposite.
The Gates beyond the large planter used to lead to the Airing Courts where mental patients used to be allowed to walk when it was sunny.

Butterfly on a Buddleia
Thought I'd continue with the bug theme and as we all need cheering up on a Monday morning what better than a butterfly on a Buddleia.
It's a peacock Butterfly and they seem to love Buddleia or Butterfly Bush as it is also called, it's also a bit of a weed.

First Photo of 2013
The first photo I took in 2013 for the midday link on Geograph, the time is a couple of minuets twelve and a few people are out for a walk at the Forty in Cholsey.

Thought I'd show a flower for a change, this is more of a weed or as most would call it a wild flower. Still a very pretty when you see them and when you see it close up.
Happy New Year Everyone
hope it brings you joy.
