It’s been a while since I posted a ‘model’ shot. This is Auckland, New Zealand.

Unsettled

The Lizard, Cornwall.

Goonhilly

Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station is a large telecommunications site located on Goonhilly Downs near Helston on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall, England, UK. Owned by BT Group plc, it was at one time the largest satellite earth station in the world, with more than 25 communications dishes in use and over 60 in total. The site also links into undersea cable lines. (From Wikipedia)

This is the site’s first dish, built in 1962 to link with Telstar. It has been dubbed ‘Arthur’.

Mini Auckland

Continuing the New Zealand theme in preparation for the World Cup, here are a couple of mini Auckland shots taken from the Sky Tower.

Cloudy Moon

The Moon. Cloudy. Far too cloudy for meteors :-(

Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle, Kent. Kinda nice.

Field

A gloomy field. I feel gloomy so that’s pretty apt. To be fair, more angry than gloomy.

Fishing Boat at Dungeness

More stuff from the wonderfully odd world of Dungeness.
