Yesterday afternoon,, I made a quick trip to Stanage Edge and caught these two walking companions silhouetted against a spectacular February sky. They are at the old triangulation pillar that was erected here for mapping and survey purposes back in 1938. It's just right of the walkers, peeping above the horizon.
I descended from The Edge at 5pm. A month ago it would have been pitch dark at that time. Ten minutes later I was in the car heading home to cook mashed potato, savoy cabbage and pork loin chops with gravy and apple sauce before walking up to "The Hammer and Pincers" for the Tuesday evening pub quiz with friends Mick and Mike.
We did not win. One of the questions was "What are the four main human blood groups?" Would you have known? We didn't.
