This thread needs a bump. Keep those pictures coming. And remember what you might think is boring, "not-worth-taking-picture-of-everyday-stuff". Might be interesting and unusual for others, living in totally different parts of the word :)
Out fishing after sea trout, on one coooold, windy night.

1 of my bugout bag lights in Japan. Energizer 2-in-1 lamp with a Fox 40 Mini whistle attached.
Cheap, lightweight, water resistant, has a torch and lantern mode, simple user interface (off-torch-lantern-off).
The lantern mode isn't cool white which is a plus.
This Japanese Sake Kit-Kat is good. Has a bit of alcohol and does taste like sweet, creamy sake.

One meter + of rotten snow as soon as we get over 200 meters above sealevel. So we desided to take a short roadtrip and look for new fishingspots for trout in waters just above sealevel.

Whilst cycling through London the other day, came upon this building in Shepherd's Bush.

This is where Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor started their round the world Motorcycle trip, as journaled in "Long Way Round". It was their preparation garage and the production base for the whole journey. Fantastic show if you haven't seen it. So the Torchlab V5 Scout had to get in the picture as well!

Jorn - can I just say I love the expanse and beauty of your pictures. I live so far from such a wilderness and my pictures will always be tinged with human endeavour and artifice.

Anyway, keep 'em coming!!

Meanwhile in Cumbria UK.

A fantastic hotel/pub in Ravenstonedale (Kirkby Stephen) right by a beautiful river.

Close up on the best thrower I own. Fine after dinner cigar not shown!

Here's a bit of loveliness - Castle Pendragon, in the hamlet of Outhgill.

Built in the 12th century by Uther Pendragon (Father of King Arthur).

Thank you for the kind words.

If you thought that was Holy Grail-esque, how about this!

Here we are at Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire - even a sunny day didn't stop me having fun with my new HDS Rotary Forensic Blue.

Quite a Sundial alternative.

What? Ridden on a horse?

I must confess to some envy, sir. Both because of your environs and your snazzy new HDS.

Cheers from the other side of the pond.

Well, that was fun sifting through sixteen pages of photos. Fall foliage in Portland Oregon (Oct 2017). A red 6 D-Cell Maglite with Terralux innards (TLE-310M-EX), and two foliage-green Maglites (ML50LX & ML300LX).
