No Trains at Ramsbottom

Ramsbottom is one of the many pretty villages that you pass as the steam train trails up the Rossendale Valley. Over the winter months the East Lancashire Railway restricts the steam trains to only running over the weekends, so today being midweek it was quite safe to photograph the rail tracks as there were no trains!

This photograph was taken using a long exposure on a tripod to prevent any blurring, complete with wooly hat and gloves to stay warm.

The iconic Lindisfarne Castle standing on Holy island off the Northumberland Coastline. The Castle can only be accessed twice a day at low tide and is maintained by the National Trust.  A pebble marks your visit to the spot.

A little 7 sport ladybird (coccinella 7-punctata) that I came across in Parbold in Lancashire. This is the most commonly spotted ladybird by people and was found in bramble bushes.

If you spot any lady birds be sure to help out the Ladybird Survey by taking a note and sending them a picture.
