Collection One


Collection One is a sample of images to get the ball rolling. These were taken by Graham and by Ike, mostly around Bishopthorpe but some are from further afield. There are 16 images in this Collection. Once you're looking at the full entry, just click on the any of the small images below to see a larger version in a separate window.




The Fisher of Dreams - We've got used to seeing this and hardly notice it now, but if you've not seen it before it before it's an impressive modern sculpture on the old railway swing bridge, which now carries the York - Selby footpath and cycle track.

A dramatic sunrise at Whitby

No, not Monaco but one of the old mooring residents - gone now I think. The boat's obviously seen some action in it's time. The red paint is quite fresh, but it's probably not enough to make it completely seaworthy...

The Ebor meeting gets under way in 2007 - not the ill-fated 2008 event!

Apologies to Sting, but I think this is a field of wheat, rather than barley. Taken in mid-August and just about ready for harvest.

There used to be a number of abandoned but interesting farm machines in the fields between Bishopthorpe and Acaster Malbis. They've been moved away now, but were a feature for a good number of years.

Another view - it was probably state of the art when new.
