SKYWATCH FRIDAY- QUEENS PROMENADE






This is not the image I originally wanted to upload but my poor laptop has a faulty cable and died on me earlier. Unfortunately my new photographs are on there, so I have had to use an older one from a back up disc and borrow my partners laptop to upload and publish the Skywatch post. Had to publish earlier than usual as he needs the laptop back sharpish as he's on a deadline for the BBC to get his cartoon in for friday. Fun and games. So aplogises in advance for not responding to emails and comments as frequently as usual. Hopefully we should be a 2 pc household by next week, and there's always he local library pc's if all else fails.


Thanks for the emails re the orchid I couldn't identify. The answer may have been found, as it looks very likely it's a Heath Spotted Orchid. Thanks for the orchid name goes to Dragonstar
who kindly left the information in the comments section yesterday, you're a star.

The image is looking onto the jetty from Queens Promenade, Ramsey not to far from the pier I posted earlier in the week.

Don't you just hate when the computer is not behaving? I love your sky and the orchid below is very very nice.
While mine is no where near as beautiful as what I have seen, Mine is here.

I'm glad you posted this photo; age does not detract from beauty. Computers are capricious things; I hope you get yours fixed soon.

nice sky!! You can post the one you wanted to post NEXT week...look forward to it.

Computers do wonderful things, but the one thing they don't do is make life easier. They simply help us do more things, more efficiently at times, with several additional layers of complexity. Do you remember using pen, paper, envelope and postage stamp to send mail? Seems a lifetime ago. Hope you get it sorted quickly and painlessly, though the latter might be a thought produced by smoking just the right stuff :)
