Roaches Gate - we started our 4 mile circular walk from the Roaches Tea Rooms. This photo was taken near to Doxey Pool, one of the highest points on our walk and just before sunset

 

The Roaches is a huge rural area with marvellous rock formations and near to the market town of Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Thank you everyone for your visit, favorites and comments.

Every time I pass this gate I wonder why it is there.

The gate of Schloss Blutenburg, as seen from the inner courtyard.

 

Blutenburg Castle was first mentioned in 1432 though it's origins reach back to a moated castle from the 13th century.

In the years 1438–39 Duke Albert III, Duke of Bavaria rebuild the castle as a hunting-lodge.

Nowadays it houses the International Youth Library (Internationale Jugendbibliothek) and the library of the Michael Ende Museum.

Entrance to a garden at Nijo Castle, Kyoto. Hasselblad X1D.

This is the moor gate leading from Ainthorpe Rigg down to Ainthorpe village in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

 

To the left the village of Castleton is visible

 

Rigg is a commonly used word on the moors and it comes from the Scottish word for "ridge", as in the medieval "ridge and furrow" system of farming.

 

Here Ainthorpe Rigg separates Danby Dale from Little Fry Up Dale

Senganmon Gate@Izu Peninsula Geopark

松崎町雲見・千貫門(伊豆半島ジオパーク)

 

This is a famous sight seeing spot of Izu Peninsula.

After the photographing, it becomes darkness without lights.

 

写真撮影を終える頃には、街灯もないので辺りは真っ暗。

帰りの上り坂がちょっと辛いのですが、伊豆の観光名所です。

雪が少ないので、この年始も伊豆を散策しました。

See that white post in the lower left foreground? As I was setting up my tripod for this bridge shot I noticed a dark object fly past and land on that pole. Thought to myself "has to be an owl", it was 10pm. I figured it was a GHOW, but when I put my flashlight on it, it was a Short-eared Owl. I took a few long exposure shots with it illuminated before it flew off to hunt. Pretty crazy to see a SEOW in the Bay Area in June!

Remnants of lives past...

 

There used to be a stone-built barn here. It was disused for many years and eventually demolished. For a long time there was just a heap of masonry, old posts and parts of metal gates etc.

 

A couple of straggly trees grew amongst the rubble, plus nettles, grasses etc. The sheep did not graze this patch.

 

Recently the old masonry was "picked through", one of the trees disappeared, and the old metal gate. Now just one small tree remains among the overgrown stones.

 

Taken in the fields above my house, Lower Lune Valley.
