Tonights sunset

I could see there was going to be a nice sunset tonight, and if I was quick enough I might catch some of it with my camera. It is only a few minutes walk to the back of the church and onto the hills. We are quite high up here overlooking the River Trent.

In the distance is Drax Power Station, near Selby in North Yorkshire. It's about twenty miles away as the crow flies, but about thirtyfive miles to drive to it.

  1. Wasn't Hugo Drax the megalomaniac in "Moonraker"?
    There can't be many power stations that share their name with villains from James Bond stories...

  3. I drove through Selby on the A19 today, picking youngest son up from York Uni. I could have called in for a cuppa!
