Cruising Lake Windermere on The Teal

Some beautiful weather this month along with plenty of snow on the hills made for some great days out and also some striking images waiting to be captured.

One particularly fine day saw The Teal arriving back at Waterhead under this rather dramatic sunset following one its regular trips around the Lake which includes stops at Bowness, Lakeside down at the southern end of the lake and Ambleside up at the northern end.

FA Cup

Lots of work recently bringing the TV pictures of the FA Cup coverage into your homes. Adrian has been working on many of the matches that you will have been watching at various grounds large and small across the north of England. Both the BBC and BT have been televising the competition this year.

Walk The Nile

Watching 'Walk The Nile' on 4OD reminded me of my backpacking adventure around Egypt in 1990.

Levison Wood and various fellow travelling companions walk the 4000 mile journey from Rwanda where the Nile begins to it's final destination in Egypt where it runs into the Mediterranean Sea.

Journalist Matt Power who was accompanying Levison on part of his journey through Tanzania, became a fatality when he suffered heat stroke and died on March 10th 2014.

It was a gruelling, incredible and very scary adventure. Well worth watching.
