Deer Deer
Deer DeerNikon D5300
Tatton Park again and what else would I be taking pictures of? Ducks, no that's Reddish Vales job to house ducks for the taking of pictures. No Tatton Park is the second place to go if you want to take pictures of Deer, naturally the first place is Dunham Masey, but since we didn't think we could take the excitement, we dialled it all the way back to number 2 and headed out to Tatton.

To be honest with the cold, deer were the only things of note, everything was safely tucked up in bed by the looks of it unlike the visitors to Tatton Park, so a quick tour it was, I bagged 50+ bad pictures of deer and then homeward bound.

Ness Gardens
Ness GardensNikon D5300
We went to Ness Gardens today which happen to have gardens and I assume the Ness Monster, however the monster wasn't there or was hiding when we were there, probably a little too cold for it, it was probably out somewhere warm like Loch Ness.

It has the usual Halloween themes running through the gardens with scarecrows all over the place and a spooky barn, to be honest, it was all OK and the light was pretty poor for pictures, but I don't think this one turned out too bad, at least there's a bit of colour in it which is difficult sometimes in autumn with the light the way it is.

Its OK They Are Just Sleeping
Its OK They Are Just SleepingNikon D5300
We were away this weekend, off tripping through Cheltenham and the surrounding area. From staying in Cheltenham I found out two things that I never knew. The first is that GCHQ is just surprisingly there in Cheltenham, not in the sticks, not in the centre but just dropped there, surrounded by stuff the usual sort of things you find in a town, colleges, businesses etc, but you would expect it to be surrounded by hedges or trees but no... it's just... there.

The second thing I didn't know what Gloucestershire Airport is in Cheltenham (probably more accurately between Gloucester and Cheltenham) and GCHQ is under the flight path, but the runway runs more or less up to the road on the East boundary, yet the road is raised, so there are warning lights for over height vehicles so that they can't cross the end of the runway when certain aircraft take off. Anyway, to the picture. Apparently this is the tomb of Alexander and Anne Denton which is in Hereford Cathedral. She died in childbirth and he carried on to marry again in the remaining 10 years of his life. Who he is and why he's there, who knows, because I ran a quick search and nothing came up other than explaining info that was already in the cathedral in that he died in 1576 and is buried with his second wife in Buckinghamshire.

Gaskell House Revisited
Gaskell House RevisitedNexus 4
So after they refurbished Gaskell House it now looks like this. I have a before photo and readin the entry back I have no idea what the heck I was talking about. Some rubbish about taking loads of rolls of film and travelling from Stcokport to Manchester on the A6 and taking photos? What the heck was I thinking of. Well perhaps in 2006 I had loads of time to piss up the wall taking photos of a road I just really hate driving down and gets a rough in bits and would have been worse then.

Anyway, back to todays image. It's sort of a very small museum which is quite interesting but also a little brief and lacking in info on Elizabeth Gaskell I though, but perhaps I missed stuff, though a couple of the volunteers were very chatty and full of information, but it was nice to see that they have got the place looking nice and considerably less pink.

Duck Three
Duck ThreeNikon D5300
It was a walk out to Reddish Vale park to day allowing me to test out my upgrade to the D5000, the D5300. Using it's colour selection effect to pick out the orange on the ducks feet, I got this pic. In addition to this it tagged the pictures with the long lat which will will help with tagging the picture for the weather stats that I have on the site, however this will need a bit more work to strip the info. Still it's not the best picture every and only of note because of the orange tweak.
