Springtime panorama of Surrey countryside looking south towards Reigate town in the distance, with Reigate Hill on the left and Colley Hill on the right.

Amtrak's northbound Cardinal hurries (on time) through Surrey, Indiana. Surrey is 69 miles SE of Chicago on the former Monon.

This old surrey school is about to be pulled down for houses but I thought I would have a wander around before it was demolished. A spooky experience especially as the interior has been severely trashed and I definitely heard rustlings in the building, probably an animal but who knows!

I stole a wonderful ten minutes on the way to work this morning. As I climbed over the gate into this field there was a girl on horseback riding along the bridal-way. She looked down at me and just said "what a fantastic morning isn't it", I pointed to my camera and said "that's why I'm here".

She was photographing it from horseback with her phone!

There is nothing like making your way to a popular spot to find it empty. They had actually closed all the car parks due to an event later that evening but a little sweet talking with the authority in charge bought me an hours parking!

The summit of Box Hill in Surrey has some awesome views over Dorking and the Surrey Hills AONB but for the best viewpoint you can head a short distance along the North Downs Way to here, the Salomons Memorial, at 172m, a mix of rural and urban land steeped in history.

 

Sometimes you expect more from a sunset due to the way it is setting and the formation of the clouds, hoping for that strong burst of colour to light up the skies, sometimes expecting too much. This time I left happy but not overly excited. But that is the beauty of landscape photography, no two shots are ever the same.

Add a frost to the sunrise... and it makes for the golden glow

as the sun was just coming up behind me near Hambledon Church in Surrey

Chipstead in Surrey heading towards Merstham, its been a beautiful day in the early 20s and the sunset rounded it off. Driving to get provisions a slight detour down a country lane and here we are! A short journey away from London but scenes like this all around, very perfect.

Number two from this morning, taken over the Surrey Hills near Guildford.

Everyone's excited about the idea of electric driverless vehicles lately. In Vancouver, we've had electric driverless vehicles for 32 years. I just rode one to New West to have a few drinks with the tech crowd I hang with out here.

Tonight's sunset from Surrey Park Lake, Box Hill

A spectacular sunset in East Horsley,Surrey.

Our favourite place to eat when in my childhood hometown of Surrey is the Round-up Cafe where my Dad ate when he was in his teens. I know that there has always been people down on their luck, its not a modern phenomena but I don't remember noticing it when I was a kid. There are some streets in Surrey that just break my heart.

 

seen last year on this day from inside the Round-up Cafe on the King George Highway (renamed "Boulevard" now -la de-dah ).

It was so misty, it looks like this photo was shot in b&w.

As you can see landscapes are not my thing. I don't know how to shoot them nor do I know how to process them very well. This was taken on a walk I did in Surrey recently, near Dorking. Beautiful area, very hilly, nice views. I took about 30 photos and when I got them home I didn't like any of them. This composition appealed to me at the time because of the line of the dark field against the lighter coloured background but even I have to admit that I should stick to my urban scenes and leave landscapes to those that are more capable.

We managed a break from prison this weekend. Not Barnard Castle unfortunately, but some perfectly pleasant Surrey countryside in the lee of the North Downs. Nothing fancy but a lovely summer's day

In a little stream / water channel at RHS Wisley ...

They are normally very shy birds but this one was quite happy in the stream and remained there for about 10 minutes ruffling its feathers and preening itself ...

The angle was a bit challenging though due to a wooden barrier ...

St Martha's Hill is a landmark in St Martha in Surrey, England between the town Guildford and village of Chilworth. It is the 18th highest hill in the county and on the Greensand Ridge, in this case at the closest point to the North Downs, commencing to the immediate north at the Guildown-Merrow Down in the parishes of Guildford and Merrow. The top of the hill provides a semi-panorama of Newland's Corner also in the Surrey Hills AONB. Its church is the main amenity of the small parish extending to the south into the streets of Chilworth, with some medieval stone incorporations from a 12th-century predecessor (rebuilt 1848-1850 by Henry Woodyer) and is a wedding venue mainly to outside of the sparsely populated parish.
