Simard asserts that healthy forests centre on a matriarch tree that acts as a nexus of nutrient distribution that shares these nutrients among other trees of the same or different ages and species that are chemically and physically linked together by an expansive mycorrhizal network. Simard faced ridicule during her younger years; however her research became “critical to addressing problems in the timber industry” that led to reforms in sustainable forestry.
From my files – A view over the Great Lake (Castle Howard North Yorkshire) the lake being built by the 5th Earl in the 1790s
Spent some time here over Xmas & New Year, ignoring all the dire prognostications that seem to emanate from everywhere.
Abandoned carpet – from my negative files.
Trees and rock – Padley Woods.
Burbage brook was used as the feeder stream for Padley Mill.
Water Mill drive converter wheel.
Going through old negatives, I found a sheet from the early 1980s of Padley Mill and Padley woods in the Peak District National Park: Derbyshire.
Kodacolor VR200 film which was made between 1982 to 86, this helped me date them at more than 35 years old.
I have been scanning and converting some into B&W.
Yashica mat 124G with Tmax 400 at asa 320.
I am almost sure this negative (T-max TMY not TMY-2) was made in the early 1980’s.
The first recorded church on this site was a wooden structure built in 627, the present building was begun in about 1230 and completed in 1472. Looking at its history: the site seems to have been beset by fires ! see this Wiki link.
Lone tree on a damp, cold & foggy North Yorkshire moor.
More alternative visualisations/previously un-scanned negatives or processed files from Oman, starting with this one, made in 2010.
Being stopped from travel and almost locked away for more than a year, I’ve not had much enthusiasm or even opportunity for photography. So going through my negatives/slides and digital files has kept me from going ‘Doolally’, for those not familiar with this word: it means ‘lose one’s mind’, derived from the boredom felt at a British Army transit camp in Maharashtra India, established in 1861.
Storm damage – it must have made a lot of noise when it came down.
Open doors No.6 – from my Oman files.
What’s left of the plaster and stone work on this ruin,
would indicate a rather spectacular entrance at some point in time.
From my Oman files.
From my Oman negative files.
Being watched (this cat was not in the least bit worried that I was there, able to use both my Nikon F2sb and Bronica S2a) although he did move his head when the Bronica shutter tripped; for those that don’t know this camera, it’s loud!
