Seconded.

Nice looking pub and village, Rynner; you're lucky to be living in that neck of the woods! Mixed reviews of F & H on Tripadvisor, however.

Tripadvisor is often crap, I've read. And the pub came under new management fairly recently. But no skin off my nose anyway - I've only been there about four times!

As for a caption competition, name me a year from 2005 to the present, and I'll see what I can find!

2009 - OK. Might as well keep it on this thread for now though. I'll see what peculiar images 2009 threw my way....

A hint: this is hail, not rain.

Looks like dogs are evolving to stand on their hind legs.
That might actually happen, too.

If that was my dog I think I'd have to call him Asterix.

Sunrise over St Michael's Mount from Newlyn.
By CMphotogreg | Posted: April 21, 2015

This was the stunning sunrise this morning over St Michael's Mount, taken from Newlyn Harbour. It continues the run of glorious weather in West Cornwall that began in time for the Easter holidays.

Right, move over, Cumberland Spaceman!

I now present the Cornwall Spaceman!

I was taking pictures of Hayle viaduct, which is reaching the end of a long period of renovation, when I caught this strange figure. Why is he wearing a spacesuit and helmet?

Now, in keeping with the best traditions of this photographic genre, "I didn't notice this when I took the picture"!

(Not surprising - it was by a busy road, and I was concentrating on getting the shot I wanted without a passing bus or van spoiling it.)

But tain't normal, izzit?
