Sunrise on Wanstead Flats

I generally wake early and get started online before breakfast but yesterday I decided to try a sunrise walk around the Alexandra Lake  at Wanstead Flats. That’s where I often end up taking some exercise later in the day anyway, but the sky was clear and there are supposed to be some interesting migrant birds heading our way at this time of year.

Leaving the house I could feel the air was cold but on approaching the green open space that is the flats I could see layers of mist suspended over the frosted grass. When the sun poked up over the lines of trees it lit up the landscape with golden light.

Kew Gardens

There are many folly buildings at Kew Gardens and yesterday I learned that the person who instigated them had a swivel chair installed inside the little domed colonade at the top of the hill near the lake next to the Palm House. From that vantage point she could survey the results of the gardeners’ labour. The view would have been much different in those days but I thought I’d make a mock swivel chair video of the view from yesterday at Kew Gardens.

Many more Kew Gardens photos are amongst my photosets on Flickr such as :

Cooking Monkfish with Cider in Galicia

Hello, I’m cooking fresh fish with cider over a trangia camping stove in sunny Galicia, northern Spain.

With videography by Evan Roberts, this youTube is pretty self explanatory.

The actual location is a campsite at Camping Moreiras, O Grove, Pontevedra, Galicia. The fish, a whole monkfish, came from the fish market on the harbour at O Grove itself, as did the vegetables and the cider is an Asturian Sidra Natural obtaine en route from one of many Eroski supermarkets.

Just a bit of fun really, but it captures one of many happy mealtimes from a memorable holiday touring Asturias and Galicia in September 2011. There are loads of photos online  at both my collection and Linda’s Flickr  photostreams.
