Field of gold

A field of golden wheat awaiting harvest at Cooling in Kent.

I took this photo on one of my walks through Kent. I write about my walks (amongst other things) on my blog Kent Today and Yesterday.

On the footplate

This is a view of the footplate of the steam engine 60163 Tornado taken during a water stop at Headcorn, Kent earlier this year.

I like the way the glow of the fire reflects on the fireman's face.

My son was lucky enough to be invited up to have a quick look on the footplate.

On borrowed time

We spent a few hours on the beach at Hastings recently and my son made this sandcastle.

Unfortunately the tide was coming in and being a typically British Summer's day it was blowing a gale.

I believe this is a Harris Hawk. They normally live in North America. It was part of a falconry display at Chevening House in Kent a few weeks ago.
