The Green Bridge of Wales

A944NW

I have posted a similar image previously. It is quite an old shot and I think I’d straighten the horizon or crop to remove it. Anyway, it was licensed recently presumably for a textbook. It shows the classic sequence of headland erosion – cave, arch, stack, stump.

The Green Bridge of Wales is located in the Castlemartin area of the Pembrokeshire coast national park. The rock along this stretch of coast is carboniferous limestone.

Red Poll cattle breed

Young red poll cattle crowded together, Sutton, Suffolk, England, Uk

This herd of youngsters were bellowing so loudly that I heard them from a mile away (literally). We don’t have all that many cows in Suffolk! So I followed the noise and found this mob of boisterous calves milling around and making a racket together. They all came over to have a look at me and this one seemed especially interested.

The Red Poll is a dual-purpose breed developed in England in the latter half of the 19th century. The Red Poll is a cross of the Norfolk Red beef cattle and Suffolk Dun dairy cattle breeds – neither of the parent breeds now exist. The Red Poll breed was established in Australia ( from 1870s), New Zealand ( 1898 and first herd in 1917) and USA ( 1873) – making Red Poll the oldest registered breed of cattle in the United States.

They are naturally ‘polled’ – it means without horns. If you know anything more feel free to post a comment.

At the moment this image is exclusive to Geography Photos but will be on Alamy soon.

Quaternary industry, Cambridge Science park

NAPP pharmaceutical group building architect Arthur Erickson at Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge, England, UKDDB1GG

Quaternary industry – the fourth stage of industry – is concerned with advanced technology, research and development.

Napp Pharmaceutical Group is an independent pharmaceutical company that has been developing innovative products for over half a century. This is its prestigious headquarters building ( 1983) housing offices and laboratories at Cambridge Science Park. The science park provides high quality surroundings, is close to the trunk road network, and of course, close to the university and other similar companies.

I have similar shots without the person so presumably that is an important element to the user. It gives scale and a sense of activity and purpose as she strides towards the entrance.

River Orwell and the Wet Dock, Ipswich

River Orwell view to urban redevelopment in the Wet Dock, Ipswich, Suffolk, England, UK

JGH9Y5

The foreground shows hard engineering solutions to urban river management with flood defence walls and a lined channel to reduce friction and increase discharge. In the background is the former port area of the Wet Dock which had become deindustrialised by the mid 1990s – much later than many other ports. The Wet Dock itself constructed in the 1840s but the port location dates back to the Anglo-Saxons.

Right in the centre, with the checkered design, is the waterfront building of University of Suffolk. The tall building to the left shows apartments rising above Dance East studios. Vacant land and derelict buildings suggest that much is likely change from this viewpoint over the coming years.

Find the person wearing a red top walking along the left bank – an important detail in the image.

A prehistoric kitchen at Drombeg

‘Fulacht fiadh’ water trough and fireplace building at Drombeg stone circle, County Cork, Ireland.

This photo shows what is essentially a Bronze Age kitchen no doubt used to feed those attending ceremonies at the adjacent stone circle.

Excavation in 1959-60 revealed a horseshoe-shaped drystone enclosing bank, a central slab-lined cooking pit, U-shaped hearth and well with a stone-lined overflow drainage channel ( this last item is not visible in the photo below as it runs behind the far wall).J2TX3J

Bronze Age site of Grimspound, Dartmoor

Grimspound is a late Bronze Age site high up on on Dartmoor in Devon, England. The ruins of 24 circular stone huts are surrounded by a low stone wall. The site was named in the eighteenth century and its name is probably related to the Anglo-Saxon god of war, Grim ( also known as Woden, or Odin). Several ruins of stone buildings are shown in the photo along with the enclosure wall.

This was licensed yesterday for editorial use though unfortunately the details are vague.
