I forgot to post this yesterday. On Tuesday the day started bright but cloud soon came in and by lunch time we were having showers. The cloud stayed around overnight and it was a dull morning with low cloud and intermittent drizzle, but still with that lovely fresh rain smell.
As I was selecting which of the 10 shots was the best I noticed something odd in this photo. Can you see a sort of "negative rainbow" touching down around the top of the leftmost boat mast? I know it isn't a smudge on the lens as the 10 shots are all slightly different but it stays in context. Weird.
Certainly looks as though you may have a sequoia there Phil ~ probably it will be the fruit that gives it away ~ as understand it, a cone sitting up in the branches is a cedar ~ whilst the sequoia has berry like fruit with seeds inside it [I think...LOL]
Tracks going away from London are referred to as the "down" line, towards London is the "up" line. This can result in all sorts of confusion at certain places like Exeter St Davids station, where two lines from London converge from opposite directions and trains coming in from the north are "down" but coming in from the east via Exeter Central then going north are "down".
