Saturday late morning in the park full of dogs and their masters. Now Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe but it's not long ago when the air was heavy with smoke and vibrating with the sounds of industrial revolution.


Under the Stars in Cornwall

We spent a good part of our summer holiday on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. Lizard is the southernmost point of the mainland British Isles and, lacking major settlements, enjoys beautiful starry skies. Unfortunately our stay there coincided with the full moon and that ruined the effect a bit. I had to wait a couple of days when the moon rose late enough for the sky to become dark.
