https://flic.kr/p/2bU2A8o | Scotney Castle, Lamberhurst, Kent | Actually a fortified manor house, built in 1380 with four turrets.  When the new manor house was built in 1837 (the old castle being too damp) the builder used much of the stone from the old castle, but left enough of the structure to provide a wonderful garden feature!

https://flic.kr/p/2bZUK1v | Nearly there! | The perils of choosing to ride a bike in the Shropshire Hills! You either have to be supremely fit or be prepared to spend a lot of time walking up them, pushing your bike. Just like the chap who is just appearing over the top of the nearest hill, on the left of the picture. He stopped to chat to us and seemed quite happy.

https://flic.kr/p/pKXrUu | Woodbury Common Tree | A fairly average photo but the first with my new 16-35 f/4 lens (my old 17-40 had a tragic encounter with a shingle beach). I got home and rushed out to find some nice light. This was the best I could find before I lost the light but, on first impressions, I'm happy with the new kit.
