The Peace of Time https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/8/17/the-peace-of-time
Lisabet and I have visited quite a few abbey ruins in our time, and there’s a common feeling we experience when visiting them: a sense of peace.
Revisit, Remember, Relearn https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/8/4/revisit-remember-relearn
I like to revisit favourite compositions. A large part of this is simply the love of the view itself. But also, it helps me to reconnect, in a way.
The Sea Takes Bites Out Of The Land https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/8/1/the-sea-takes-bites-out-of-the-land
I wasn’t sure how to compose this photo. Should I compose for the gorgeous turquoise water? The cliffs? The nearby ridge?
The Island of Colourful Rocks https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/7/27/the-island-of-colourful-rocks
Ynys Llanddwyn, the spit of craggy land off Newborough beach in Anglesey, is a botanist’s dream.
A Valley Of Two Halves https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/7/13/a-valley-of-two-halves
Dyffryn Ogwen, or the Ogwen valley, is a fascinating place for amateur geologists, like me.
The Desk of John Ruskin https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/7/4/the-desk-of-john-ruskin
John Ruskin bought the, at the time, rather dilapidated Brantwood house in 1871 for £1,500, roughly equivalent to £175,222 in today’s money.
The Island Of Lovers https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/28/the-island-of-lovers
One of the little “jewels” you can find around North Wales lies just off the Newborough/Niwbwrch coast on the island of Anglesey: Ynys Llanddwyn.
I would have to say that these falls are in my Top 5 British Waterfalls (that I’ve seen so far) https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/25/appropriately-named
In English they’re called Swallow Falls, known in Welsh as Rhaeadr Ewynnol, which translates to “Foaming Waterfall”.
The Wizard's Hat of Ogwen https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/23/the-wizards-hat-of-ogwen
All the weather forecasts today were pointing to a giant thunderstorm arriving at some point in the afternoon so Lisabet and I got up and out first thing, and went to see an old friend: Tryfan.
Mountains Are The Beginning And The End Of All Natural Scenery https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/17/mountains-are-the-beginning-and
John Ruskin, author of the above quote, was many things during the Victorian era: artist, writer, art critic, philosopher. But he was also a social revolutionary.
The weather’s been pretty dreich this week, especially today. So here’s a happier shot from a couple of weeks ago, taken from the shores of Elter Water.
The Rainbow Above The Cliff https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/6/the-rainbow-above-the-cliff
Not long after I got my shiny new Sigma dp0 Quattro I went hiking up a nearby hill just west of Kendal: Scout Scar.
The Revelation of Light https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/6/5/the-revelation-of-light
It would be fair to say that the Lake District doesn’t shine a light compared to the natural splendour and fecundity of New Zealand, especially New Zealand’s South Island. But we have our own little charms, right?
The Town of Tug o' War https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2019/5/25/the-town-of-tug-o-war
I’ve been around Northumberland many times in the last few years, but never took the opportunity to properly explore Berwick-upon-Tweed: the most northerly town in England.
My Mission: to show off the natural & architectural beauty of Britain to the world.
