The Meridian Laser

The Meridian Laser is a line beamed into the night sky from the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. The line sits on the Prime Meridian and is visible up to 60 miles away. The picture below also shows Jupiter just above the observatory roof. :-)

Sign: Down on the Other Side

sign: go down, down, down on the other side of the road

Here's another strange sign I found in Louth, this one on Vickers Lane:

... Go onto the main street. Right... go down, down, down on the other side of the road for a couple of minutes. You'll go past a couple of butchers' and a little tea shop, then turn right and it's just round the corner ...

The sign is one of thirteen created by artist Rupert Clamp in 2007-2008. Rupert pretended to be lost and recorded the directions he was given.

Early Morning in the Snow

The morning after we arrived in Llanrhaeadr ym Mochant I went exploring. I discovered this scene on a narrow lane leading to Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall.
