休憩時間

The sound of cheap tyres desperately trying to stop on gravel gave way to total silence as I walked down the roadside with my camera to snap Black Mount living up to its name against a glorious night sky. I was tired, it had been a long trek over the past couple of days, but how could I drive past this? This kinda thing is why I’m miles from home and not in the pub or sitting scratching my arse in front of the telly after all.
Whaaaammmm!!! A Tornado jet fired past me heading north. Missed it, too slow. But, they hunt in pairs and I waited for the next one. Still, being ready and getting a good photie are two different things.
Whaaaammmm!!! These bastards are fast. I bet they had the kettle on and their feet up while I was still stuck behind that bloody mini-van with the droopy suspension on its left side that I caught up on Loch Lomond-side.

  1. Wow.

    That bit of straight by Rannoch must be the only place in Britain with skid marks caused by people stopping to take pictures… They should put a warning sign!

    And talking of signs, what’s with the Japanese (?) title? Is that Japanese for ‘Wow”, or is it for ‘Slow Bastard With Droopy Suspension on the Left”?

  2. The Japanese lettering is cool isn’t it? It translates as intermission or interval as Ange wisely deduced (or googled?!)
    Day two did have a different flavour for sure, for a wee snapshot of how it turned out click on the top right-hand “Pointing machinery at the scenery” thumnnail :o)

  3. Well that caused a moment of confusion – thought my RSS reader was mixing my English blogs with my Japanese blogs..

    Two thumbs up for kyuukei jikan.

  4. What type of plane was it? Can’t see enough detail in the pic. (Yes I have just revealed myself as plane spotting geek.)

  5. Definitely Panavia Tornado’s, but the variant letters are beyond me!

    It took me ages to find out what kyuukei jikan was…
