ABC Wednesday
O is for Over the Edge of England

On the 2nd October 2010 we finally flew on Flybe from Manchester to Jersey.

We should have gone in April but our flight was cancelled at the last minute due to the volcanic ash cloud. The airline refunded us less a booking and credit card fee of £12, but our travel insurance failed to pay up for the cancelled holiday.

However the Maison des Landes Hotel moved our booking to October.

I took these two photographs through the plane window. We are somewhere over the South coast of England, possibly near the Isle of Wight.

I'm still working my way through the almost 300 photographs I took that week and will present the best fifty or so on my website in due course.

Meanwhile one taster can be found on my sithenah photoblog.

  1. Oh, yeah, the big volcanic ash issue. How unfair that you had difficulties getting some reimbursement.

  2. For once being on a small island helped. We seemed to be under the radar. Eerie lilac haze.

  3. over the edge of England, is a beautiful bay,
    lovely o take,
