Continuing on from yesterday’s post from Solomon’s temple we waited until just after it had gone dark to take this shot. It’s amazing how much colour the camera can see that our eyes can’t when it has gone dark especially when shooting a long exposure, it has picked up the remaining afterglow along with some light pollution which has been reflected on the smoke drifting over from the fire still burning on Harpur Hill while higher up stars can be seen trailing across the sky.(Olympus EM-1 Mkii 7-14mm f/2.8 pro 97 seconds f/4 @ 13mm) © Stephen Elliott #ig_peakdistrict #peakdistrictnationalpark #PeakDistrict #olympusuk #osmaps #visitpeakdistrict #ukpotd #kasefilters #kasefiltersuk #landscapephotography #bestukpics #uklandscape #loves_united_kingdom #landscape-lovers #lovegreatbritain #landscape_captures #landscapestylesgf #loves_landscape #ic_landscapes #landscape_lovers #rural_love #ig_countryside #rsa_rural #country_features #bbceastmidlands #reversegrad @natureshot @yourbritain #igersderbyshire #raw_uk #raw_community_member at Solomon's Temple , Buxton

My favourite pubs are those which have history behind, charm and character. Like The George & Dragon in Arundel, where we had lunch with our darling friends. One of the oldest pubs in Sussex, dating back to 1276! Beautiful view in its garden (to sit there on Good Friday was just fantastic, you remember what weather was like?) and cozy inside 🙌🏼. . 🐉 Мои любимые пабы - это те, в которых есть история, характер и очарование Англии. Как The George & Dragon в Арунделе, в который мы попали в прошлую пятницу с друзьями. Это один из старейших пабов графства Сассекс, появившийся в 1276 году! Превосходный вид в саду (особенно круто сидеть в такую погоду, как у нас была в пятницу) и атмосферно внутри. ✨ at George & Dragon

[ad] Last week, I spent a few days exploring Plymouth, a city intertwined with its longstanding maritime roots. I'm here with @homeofplymouthgin following on from our trip to Umbria in October, where we helped pick juniper berries from the hillsides of Umbria. . To understand @homeofplymouthgin, one must first look at Plymouth, its home city. Located in Devon, Plymouth is the location where the Pilgrim Fathers departed for the ‘New World’ in 1620. This led to later establishing the Plymouth Colony, the 2nd British colony which is now the USA. Throughout the city, you will see the deep-rooted connection with the US and an even greater nod to the maritime heritage that helped establish Plymouth and its businesses to what they are today. . The city’s naval importance led to the devastating bombs during World War II, this is known as the Plymouth Blitz and unfortunately destroyed much of the old city. This has led to a new city, growing up alongside what was left of the historic buildings. It is a great city to explore, and once you get to know the history, you can even appreciate the less pretty, modern architecture that has sprung up all around. . At the heart of the city is the Plymouth Gin’s distillery, which has been in operation since the 1700s, with the building itself dating back to 1431. The global movements of the British Royal Navy led to consumption of Plymouth Gin all over the world, this could be taken neat, unlike London gin. In India it was mixed with tonic water, leading to Gin & Tonic, one of the world’s most well-recognised drinks. . I can’t wait until May to share with you the final piece we have been working on! at Plymouth

This bridge is lovingly known as ‘Mathematical Bridge’, however, it’s official name is just simply ‘Wooden Bridge’, it connects two parts of Queens College in Cambridge. . The bridge was designed by William Etheridge, and built by James Essex in 1749. It has been rebuilt on two occasions, in 1866 and in 1905, but has kept the same overall design. Although it appears to be an arch, it is composed entirely of straight timbers built to an unusually sophisticated engineering design, hence the name. . 📸: Follow me at @postcardsbyhannah for more of my photos around England .

Today I'm sharing a picture from one of my favourite places in the whole world. Lindisfarne is a tidal island off the coast of Northumbria, and I've visited here at least every few years since I was a child. . I've always loved these little fishing sheds made of upturned boats, and I also like how you can see the silhouette of the castle in the background behind this one. . This was taken yesterday when we spent a wonderful day here. I went inside the castle for the first ever time ( as its the first time I've visited having national trust membership ) and so I can confirm for definite that I'd be quite happy to move in! . . #thisprettyengland #explore_britain #gloriousbritain #lindisfarne #Northumberland at The Holy Island of Lindisfarne

Clovelly - North Devon. I didn't know I was a 'street' photographer! I'm not sure though that my effort is quite urban or grimy enough. Maybe I could take the shot in black and white and get a youth with attitude to skateboard under a streetlight or something like that. That's real street photography. Skateboarding on the cobbles though wouldn't be straight forward. . . . . . #pretty #bbctravel #capturingbritain #lovegreatbritain #devon #devonlife #devonscenery #visitdevon #england #fujifeed #fujixseries #fujifilm #fujilove #XT2 #fujifilmphotography #GloriousBritain #northdevon #photosofbritain #southwest #swcoastwalking #swisbest #swscenery #telegraphtravel #travelphotography #travelshots #ukpotd #ukshots #ukscenery #walkinguk #worlderlust at Clovelly, Devon, United Kingdom

We knew all the beaches nearby – Bantham, Bigbury, Blackpool Sands. Where was best for crabbing, bits of bacon dangling down from pontoons. Which man and which van sold the fattest, Flakiest ice creams. Which sands had dunes where adders lived. Long days were spent by the waves, the salt and sand washed away again in the old enamel bath each evening. ‘You’ve brought half the beach home with you,’ mum would say. I watched as the shower head raced grains of sand towards the plughole finish-line. at South Milton Sands

[AD - brand ambassador] Can you believe it took me 30 years to get to #Oxford despite it only being just over an hours drive away from me? This year I am determined to see more of the UK rather than opting to jump on an excessive amount of short haul flights. In Oxford I had a @marcopologuides with me, of course, and this time it was helping me find all of the best Harry Potter sites in the city 😍. Where is your favourite city in England? Let me know in the comments so I can add it to my list of place to visit this year. at Oxford, Oxfordshire

📍Stanage Edge, Hathersage, Peak District, UK — Stanage Edge in the Peak is a long gritstone crag that’s famed for its climbing and walking routes. Made up of an estimated 2000 routes with a variety of grades, Stanage is a popular place for climbing novices and hardened enthusiasts. There are a lot of schools in the area that run courses on climbing and mountaineering from bases in the Hope Valley and Sheffield which are both close hubs for accessing the edge. There are almost an indefinite amount of hikes around that traverse the edge and many use the nearby village of Hathersage as a starting point. — Want to feature your photos on our page? Just use #togetheroutdoors or tag us! We’d love to hear about your outdoor adventures, skills or communities! at Stanage Edge, Derbyshire

Beautiful Norwich 🥰 Every time I visit this city I seem to find a new reason to love it - this time it was discovering the area of Norwich Lanes, which was full of old architecture, independent shops and cute coffee houses. I can’t wait to go back and actually properly visit all these places! . Another place we visited was a gothic garden called Plantation Garden (swipe for a few flowery images 🌺) which was absolutely a-ma-zing! It was really hidden but well worth looking for - it was built over 100 years ago and consists (among many other things) of a gothic fountain, medieval terrace wall & woodland walkways. A perfect place for a picnic or just a bit of serenity. 🌿🌱 at Norwich, Norfolk

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 makes people human? I mean, basically, we all are confused walking bags of bones, blood and flesh. However, somehow, we can be special. Why? What is that in humankind that makes us stand out? Obviously, not the strength. There are many other animals which are way stronger, faster and more powerful than humans are. Clearly, not the brains, either, as no other creature is stupid enough to create ways of destroying the world they depend on by creating nuclear bombs, overusing resources, producing enormous amount of waste and so on. Stupidity then, maybe? I think the honor is something that makes us human. Empathy, too. You might say I’m wrong here because there are people out there who never heard of those qualities. Let me make myself clear: I don’t think that people spreading rumors behind someone’s back, spinning the webs of lies, breaking promises deserve to be called more than the walking bags of flesh. They are not human. And they are bound to extinct throughout the evolution process. The desire to help others, the need to shelter the loved ones resulted in creating homes. The promises given and held prompt us moving further, towards the new achievements. Creating a better future. A better world to live in. at Tower of London

𝐖𝐞 don’t need words. Not really. Words are manipulative, they are used to tell lies, they can also be used as a weapon, stronger than any of the guns. We don’t need words to look each other in the eye. To see the soul that lies beneath. To hear its cry. To feel the joy of smiling back. To share the love, as well as pain. We don’t need words for spending time with pets. We don’t need to drown in the swamp of words with the soulmate. We don’t need the words as much as we think we do. They are a mere accessory, a tool to be used from time to time, when silence isn’t bearable or when we are trying to understand each other (we would never succeed in that using only words, imo). Words don’t correctly reflect on the world around us, too. So many times I had that problem of seeing extraordinary and beautiful things, being unable to describe them precisely, finding myself at the loss of words. Because no word I know, in any language, would be accurate. At such moments, all that matters is the silence. at St. Pancras

I wish we could conserve our memories, all those moments to cherish, feelings, scents and the atmosphere itself. Put them all in a can or a bottle, that would fit them best. I wish we could place a label on them, indicating time and place, so we would never forget ourselves. And hide it all in a safe place. Thus, whenever one feels lonely or nostalgic, they could open the can and immerse in their past, being grateful for all the good moments and supportive of themselves when reliving the bad ones. Yes, bad ones are to be canned, too. As they are the ones that keep us moving, ones that teach us useful lessons, ones that shape us most. So it is necessary to maintain the balance. To be supportive of the old version of yourself. To comprehend those lessons. With every opening, the power of those memories would become less and less, until there would be only a flicker of the past to encourage imagination. To encourage moving forward and creating some new memories. I wish that in the darkest of days I could return to the happy moments of my past, for them to keep me moving. To give me faith. I wish that in my moments of ultimate happiness, I could relive the bad moments. For them to keep me on the ground. Prevent me from making the same mistakes over and over again. After all, what are we if not our memories? at Bodleian History Faculty Library, Oxford

There isn’t much point in waiting. There might be no point in it at all. The time itself doesn’t care whether you want something to happen sooner or not. It has its own pace, though sometimes it enjoys torturing us a bit, enormously stretching when we can hardly wait. Teaching us some patience. It is older than anyone can imagine or express, all of ours lives are flowing faster than a blink of an eye for it. I doubt it even remembers its own name. Or how it ended being a time. Was such fate a blessing or a curse? Or, maybe, a much longed desire, turned into reality and then losing its appeal? Was it scattered across the universe, holding it together and bringing closer to an end in an effort to save a friend or lover? Or was it a personal desire for power, grown so large that the shell of a body couldn’t contain it anymore? One millennia after another, everything repeats itself, slightly changing. Attaching to anything is a way of killing the soul, as everything dies as time itself stays. Everything you love will perish, everyone you love will die. The time simply doesn’t notice us, continuing carrying ahead, fulfilling its mission, which became a habit. It cares about us no more than we care about the dust. It isn’t cruel. It is ancient. at Bodleian Libraries

𝐇𝐨𝐩𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞. My last resort. My medicine. Twice per day, take mixed with sharp breaths. Breath in and out, with razor blades of reality cutting the tired lungs, sending deadly shiver down the spine. Steadily torturing all what is left inside. There isn’t much left there. Not anymore. I hope it won’t be today when my hope leaves me. And not tomorrow, either. I regret not being smart, wise or anything else enough, but there is no fixing things. Not those things. There is only hoping that, when those castles of glass fall, shattering across the nonexistent ground, I, being trapped in the labyrinth of those glass walls, would stand and survive the aftermath. That I could leave the trap unharmed. That it is possible, at least. The trap of depletion, of blinding glowing sun and piercing night being my only company. The trap of illusion, seeing things but not knowing what they mean. The torment of never being able to reach all the things the heart longs for. And all those walls, ceilings and floors are already covered with the deadly web of cracks, which are expanding with petrifying sounds, claiming the place. I can feel them breaking not only my heart, but also every bone of my body, haunting every thought. As though this trap turned me into one of those walls. Inhale - exhale. No escape plan, but 𝐇𝐎𝐏𝐄. at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel
