Costa Teguise, Photographs with a Samsung Tablet.

Costa Teguise is a purpose built tourist city on the south eastern side of the Island of Lanzarote. It was built during the 1970's under the guidance of Cesar Manrique and grew popular during the 1980's with European tourists. There is 5 different beaches within a short distance of the centre and everywhere on the island is accessible from here. The things I remember most are the people who worked in the hotels and local shops and cafes were some of the friendliest I have met whilst travelling. The weather was also memorable in that whilst it was always warm the mornings always started cloudy and the constant wind which meant it really lived up to it's name Breezy Teguise. I would return to Lanzarote in a heartbeat.

These pictures were taken in Costa Teguise and are featured on Flickr and Clickasnap. There are 11 different pictures to view and they were taken using a Samsung Galaxy tablet in July 2013. This holiday to Lanzarote is what made inspired me to take up photography as a hobby and I still enjoy it 4 years later.

There are 8 to view on Flickr either by using the arrows or clicking the picture to view full size there.

Ardrossan Beech, Ayrshire, Scotland.

Ardrossan Beech is a set of pictures in 6 pictures taken on the 28th November 2013 in Ayrshire, south-western Scotland. They were taken using a Samsung Galaxy tablet computer and were one of the things that sparked my interest in photography. There not the best set of photographs but then they don't have to be as this is only a hobby that I enjoy and I'm the first to admit I am unlikely to be the world's best photographer, but it gets me out of the house and it's fun.

These pictures were taken on the north shore Ardrossan beech which overlooks the Firth of Clyde and the Isle of Arran.

The following album of pictures can be seen on Flickr,

Birmingham Carriage Works Sign

The Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company was a railway locomotive and carriage builder, founded in Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom in 1854. The company also made aeroplanes, gliders, buses and tanks. The original company closed in 1963 and was reformed in June 2014 as a not-for-profit organisation to rebuild prototype locomotives from the 1960's no loner in existence. (This partial info was taken from Wikipedia. The full page can be viewed by clicking here.

I was delivering to a warehouse where the sign was in my job as a HGV driver on the 22 January 2014 and took the picture using my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. The picture has been watermarked and reduced in quality and size. To see the unaltered original picture please click the link underneath and view on Clickasnap,

The Cova de Can Marca, Port de San Miquel, Ibiza.

Or in English the Can Marca Cave in the Port of San Miguel, Ibiza. These are so far my only attempt at underground or low light photography and the results are a mixed bag. There are only a total of 23 pictures that are at all viewable out of over 100 taken in the caves so I have listed them on to Flickr and Clickasnap. The pictures were taken on the 12th July 2014 using a Polaroid iS2132 digital bridge camera.

Firstly a little on the caves. Upon arrival there is a little café waiting area where you wait to be taken down into the caves in groups, these are sorted in to whichever language you speak. The caves are not accessible for people with wheelchairs, pushchairs and with limited mobility as the are a number steps down and up from the entrance - exit. The tour takes approx. 30 - 40 minutes and is not the most informative but is still worth a visit as the tunnels through the caves are lit in a variety of colours and there is a waterfall / laser light show as part of the tour. It's a holiday so what else are you going to do to pass the time.

Cova de Can Marca, San Miguel, Ibiza.
Use the arrows to navigate the Flickr album.

The following information is taken from the information leaflet available at the caves.
From the first viewpoint, there is a panoramic view over the bay of the Puerto San Miguel, also known as Puerto Balanzat, with the Murada island in the background. Following a path cut out of the rocks, one reaches the mouth of the cave approx. 12 metres above sea level which is the start of the tour.
The cave is over 100000 years old. It was formed by earth faults and has been shaped by ice ages and tropical heat waves. The cavity known as Can Marca was discovered by smugglers, who used to it to hide there their goods.
Upon leaving the caves there are again a large number of steps to climb back to the restaurant - waiting area.

The following pictures have been watermarked and had there resolution reduced. The can be seen on Clickasnap by clicking the link under each photograph (Opens in another window). The pictures on Clickasnap are full size, full resolution and feature no watermarking's. Just viewing them helps support my photography as I receive a small payment (Currently $0.0014) per view of over 10 seconds. I won't get rich but every little helps upgrade my equipment, e.t.c. You can also buy copies in various frames, canvasses, prints and download copies of my pictures for just £0.35 there.

This picture looks down towards the caves entrance from the café - waiting area.







All the links open in another window and all pictures displayed on Clickasnap do not feature water mark's. They can be purchased in various formats and even just taking a few moments to view helps support my photography. Nearly all the pictures on Clickasnap differ from the ones available to view on Flickr. The album of 7 pictures on Clickasnap can be viewed by clicking the following link,

Belfry of Bruges.

The Belfry of Bruges is an historic bell tower overlooking the city of Bruges, Belgium. The tower has been host to the historic city archives, a former treasury, and ironically a fire observation post. This is ironic because the Belfry has been damaged by fire on no less that 3 times in 1280, 1493 and 1741. The top of the tower can be reached for a small fee and stands at 272 feet above the market square it overlooks. There is a narrow steep winding wooden staircase with 366 steps to the top of the tower which gives outstanding views over the city. Beneath the tower to the rear is a courtyard and underneath is the former market hall.

These pictures were taken on the 2nd November 2015 using a Polaroid iS2132 digital bridge camera.

There are a total of 20 different pictures 15 of which can be viewed on Flickr (Belfry of Bruges) and 5 which can be viewed on Clickasnap.

The Remains of the Rishworth Branch Line.


These are a collection of photographs taken in a number of spells along what remains of the Rishworth Branch Line. There are 2 albums to view on Flickr and Clickasnap each containing a different set of pictures.

The Rishworth Branch Line was a railway that ran from Sowerby Bridge to Rishworth through the Ryburn Valley for a length of approx. 4 miles. There was an original plan to extend the line through to Littleborough under Rishworth Moor but despite surveys being completed this was never undertaken. It was built to double track standard with this in mind but the 2nd track was mainly used to store carriages and engines.  The line features stations at Sowerby Bridge, Triangle, Ripponden with Barkisland, Rishworth and from 1907 a halt at Watson's Mill Crossing. Completed in 1878 passengers were only carried until 1929 when due to the rise in trams and buses this became unviable. Freight ceased to be carried from Rishworth in 1952 and the whole line closed in 1958 with the tracks lifted shortly after.

There is surprisingly a lot of the bridges still present with only Ripponden Bank bridge, a footbridge near Kebroyd and the trestle bridge at Rishworth long since removed. There are still platform remains at Rishworth and the Scar Head Tunnel (542 metres) are still to be found along the line, although neither are easily accessible. In all the line featured 14 crossing, a tunnel, 2 underpasses, and 5 stations.

Whilst some parts belong to private owners and are not accessible large parts of the former track bed are a public bridleway / footpath and make for a pleasant woodland walk.

The albums on both Clickasnap (Rishworth Branch) and Flickr (Rishworth Branch) are currently being added to so not all pictures can be viewed yet so please keep checking. I've hundreds that have  taken along the former line so will be adding regularly over the next few weeks.
