Stunning piece of Zelda artwork - genuinely would love to see this on my wall - a T-Shirt would not do this justice

A "peaky" but not overdone HDR-esque image that reminds me of some of my old film-taken photographs standing in the fields where I grew up.

The sunshine has arrived, time to get out and have fun with the camera again!

If you sneak around in the settings->about section of an #android phone you can tap repeatedly on the "Android Version" until it pops up a fun little "Easter egg" - in my case a lollipop that changes colour every time you tap it.

One of my photographs is set at the backdrop-works quite well don't you think 😊

Went for another run yesterday, but without the "pace car". Weather was glorious, the view over the river was amazing.

Didn't make it to the ice cream factory but we're getting closer😇

Engineering awesomeness. A wind generator without a turbine. Less moving parts (I love magnets) and uses an artifact of tall structures that most architects try to design away.

A "forest" of wind generators with no blade. I wonder what they sound like...
The Vortex, a radical new way to generate wind energy, is a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky.

Took a detour to investigate the hill that the running club use for training sometimes and got a "5th overall" time 😰 which was a little unexpected.

Almost feel like I could push for better on the next trip out but more importantly I need to get my distance running up. Just over a month until my first half marathon.

A +Google Cardboard​ virtual reality headset (sorta) has been loaned to me for the Easter break. Already had a play and it's... Odd but definitely novel!

Your phone sits in the back and runs a little app that send a slightly different picture to each eye. Move your head around and it follows your movement. Quite clever!

Not massive lag, you only just notice it. However I need to move the lenses in the headset as my eyeballs are working hard to focus when it's on my head but it's fine about 5-10cm back.

What is funny is handing it to someone and watching their response. I should film it for posterity. The dogs make the same motion when they get stuck under a cover or sheet (what, what, where am I, what's going on) 😊

Sir Terry Pratchett's hourglass may have been unfairly small but his work has a long reach.

I remember studying Mort in our English classes at school (high five Mrs Wrigley for letting me pick that out); most of the class might not have appreciated it but I thought it was literary genius and a lot more interesting than some of the stuffy alternatives.

You sir (actual Sir), rocked. Your passing truly is a loss. Don't forget to offer Binky a carrot.

Sir Terry Pratchett fought Alzheimers for several years and even with the joint books he had written with Stephen Baxter I feared we had seen the last of the #Discworld series from his great mind.  Now with his passing a few short weeks from Leonard Nimoy my list of childhood heroes continues to get ever shorter.

Helpful staff, good quality meat and always able to find us something for the easter and christmas. Even had some good tips on curing and smoking meat at home.

One of the best archaeological visits we've made, a wonderful site (but seriously hot), very much worth getting there for the 8am opening time so that you have a chance to get some photos without too many tourist about. As well as the amazing stonework there are quite a few animals about too: iguana, lizards and colourful birds. The beach was closed due to sea turtle hatching season but not much was missed. Really worth a visit.

Food is amazing, can get very busy at times and while the service is quick drinks were forgotten a few times. But if the locals rate it highly and so do we I would say make sure you pay a visit.

photos are expensive but the experience was unforgettable. swimming in a freshwater in a pitch black cavern underground, lit only by your head torch. really special.

Compact street café with excellent coffee, artisan sweet food and very friendly and knowledgeable staff, they helped me work out how to pull a better shot of coffee too!

Stunning eco park. All kinds of activities, mainly water based but educational too. Plenty of additional, paid-for, extras but the all-inclusive price had us busy there from open to close. An amazing experience. Not to be missed. Tips: Book early online to get the best price instead of through your tour operator. Grab the "collectivo" buses (25-30 pesos each) from the hotel instead of the taxis for cheap travel.
