Our Compass Points....and Stuff.

I had to climb up onto the roof today to check our weather station, after the gales last week. It survived more than some of our fences did. While I was up there I did something I've been meaning to do for a long time….photograph each cardinal point, for posterity.

To the north.

To the south. Our wind comes, mostly, from this direction.

The east! Cliffs start at the end of the last fields. They are quite high and give us some protection as we are lower down.

This is the west, from a previous post. My west photograph didn't come out very well and I'd already put the ladders away!

Slightly to the north-east. A relic of the cold war….ground-to-air radar!

The reason I was up there in the first place. Last week it registered 71 mph but it has registered over 90mph….briefly!

Through the kitchen window this morning.

A beautiful documentary set - All your photographs are so interesting and will be really worth revisiting the locations over time to document any changes.
