The 2014 season draws to a close

61 months ago
Coopers Hill, Kimpton
After my big start to the season (ie when the clocks go forward) in April the elastic which had been being pulled back throughout the winter months was allowed to shoot forward to Dungeness, and then relaxed back into stasis partly as I discovered it was no longer necessary to make a few of my next planned journeys, as plan A (getting as far as possible between my furthest two points) was no longer necessary as none would any longer increase it as they were in different directions and the...

The new season 2013

Bar Lane at the junction of the A24
The new season officially kicked off two weeks ago, with the clocks going forward, allowing my freedom to go wherever I wanted given the opportunity before it got dark.

Working in the dark

Junction of Arkley Lane and path to Saffron Green
2011 began my first year making Geograph trips. Prior to that it was either scenic views or pre-Worboys road signs, but as both were pretty much done to a reasonable distance besides random new arrivals I began working on my personal map. The long days allowed 50-60 mile trips, which normally take less time but if you stop to take photos every so often does spin them out a lot longer, but added a few extra myriads which completed the 2011 ideal mission target. When the clocks went back I went...
