From the Archives

Some weeks, because the weather has been poor, or the artistic skills of the photographer have not risen to the expected dizzy heights … or for some other reason there are few or no new images to share. A perfect opportunity to delve in the archives …

Spring around here is still two to three months away – so, to cheer us all up as we look out on boundless vistas of cold snow, here is a memory of spring 2014.

St-Ives 2019

Great Ouse River, St-Ives

The Quayside in St-Ives, Cambridgeshire on a cloudy day in May with interesting light and clouds.

The bridge from which the picture was taken is a medieval construction built in 1425, later blown up by Cromwell (a son of the town) before being rebuilt in 1716 … during the intervening years a drawbridge connected the two halves. We have morris-danced on the Quayside in years past.

In other words, this bridge is older than Canada.
