A great day out in Normandy France. Shot with a Canon 5D Mk III and Go Pro. The sheep I am told are renown for their "ready salted taste' resulting from the fact that they graze so close to the sea.Thanks to Pete Nancy and Tess for their patience.
Polderisation and occasional flooding created salt marsh meadows that were found to be ideally suited to grazing sheep. The well-flavoured meat that results from the diet of the sheep in the pré salé (salt meadow) makes agneau de pré-salé (salt meadow lamb), a local specialty that may be found on the menus of restaurants that depend on income from the many visitors to the mount.
Normandy is famous for it;s cider production. The Cider served at Roches de Ham is sweet and very refreshing on a warm day spent overlooking the Vire valley.
San Francisco is an amazing city. One of my favourite cities in the world to visit. I wanted to take some photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge but it was too foggy. It was my last day and I had a few hours before having to leave for the Airport. This Video takes you through that last day. My take on the life in the day of San Francisco. A city of contrasts.
Every September for one weekend the lanes of Poitou Charentes and the streets of the city of Angouleme echo to the rasping sounds of motor engines from a bygone era. An eclectic gathering of participants and followers descend on the region to enjoy motor sport. The city backdrop is stunning, the camaraderie superb, the food and wine simply delicious. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
