It doesn’t seem that long ago, the day I stepped off on the North Downs Way on my first ever days trailwalk. Over seven years later and 10 trails completed, it seemed like a good idea to revisit some of them with a potted photographic history. Having had a guddle around on You Tube got me thinking, why not cobble together a slideshow of some of my favourite photos of these walks.
I don’t profess to being a fantastic photographer, (thankfully there has been some improvement over the years), but these pictures are more a visual record of what has passed. More importantly they jog the memory of these walks, recalling sights and sounds otherwise long forgotten (although passing the naked rambler and his girlfriend on Hadrians Wall will never be forgotten!) and providing some inspiration and anticipation for what is to come.
The slideshow is somewhat experimental and is the first time I have tried something like this with iPhoto. It didn’t work out quite how I expected, but it seems to have turned out reasonably well.
Included are photos (in order) from:
North Downs Way
South Downs Way
Borders Abbeys Way
St Cuthberts Way
the Cumbria Way.
Hope you enjoy!
