Landscapes and wonderful views

Still standing!

Still standing! 

An old friend. I knew my favourite picnic table would still be there (I haven't passed this way in 4 years), but nonetheless I said a relieved and cheery hello to it as I passed by!
I managed to get to the mountains today. The first time in almost a year! Fortunately my feet stood up to it. The downside is that I cannot download my photos from my new mobile phone more than one at a time and until I get this fixed, it will take more time than I currently have to download the 150 I took today. Pressure of work means that I will upload my usual 3 photos a day but I may not be able to do any more than that on ipernity for the time being. I promise I will get to view your photos eventually. It may be days, it may be weeks, I cannot tell. I am far from retired. I need to keep slogging away and sometimes, especially at this time of year (exams) the pressure mounts!
I think I took some beauties but I won't be showing them all that quickly!

Outstanding photo Andy.
Understandable that we need to wait.

Many thanks John.
I intend to contribute as before (when possible). It's the other stuff; viewing members contributions, thanking the kind comments and yellow stars, etc., that I find most time-consuming and that is what will inevitably suffer. I will catch up eventually, like after I've been away for a couple of weeks (although that was on Pano - hasn't happened on ipernity so far!).

It's nice to hear you got back the the mountains after such a long time................and that you survived the experience :-))

This is a cracking shot mate...........as always. Keep 'em coming.

I've been retired since last October............and I'm busier than ever. I have no idea how I used to find the time to go to work, so don't expect to slow down anytime soon :-)) On the plus side there is very little pressure (unless you put pressure on yourself), so life is much more enjoyable.

Thank you Keith!
I think you misunderstood my comment! I will never be able to retire! I need to work till I drop!
Fortunately, I am self-employed as an English teacher so can largely control my own retirement date, if any. Thank God I look at least 15 years younger than my true age! :o)

Hi Algy,
Quite frankly, I have too much respect for nature to even have this as a passing thought!
