Mellor Cross dusk

16th July 2021

Manchester skyline from Mellor Cross

Evening walk opportunities don't come along too often at the moment, so I jumped at the chance to trot up to Mellor Cross. Manchester looking peaceful and dreamlike.

Newest old record

7th July 2021

Star Wars LP

Couldn't resist picking up this 1977 'Star Wars' LP from High Street Books, New Mills. It's older than I am and still sounds fantastic. First pick? The Cantina Song.

Vaccination #2

Kristian Scott in Buxton

Drove out to Buxton for 'Jab: Part II'. Let's hope the sequel is better than the original, which didn't really work.

Uncaged at last

2nd July 2021

Manchester evening

After 11 whole days enjoying 'The Great Indoors' my isolation has finally come to an end. The lambs have put on weight since I last saw them.

Caught Covid

Manchester evening

Just when I thought it was safe to venture out, I caught it. Had a rough few days, but through the worst now. Final day of self isolation!

Evening, Manchester

10th June 2021

Manchester evening

Made it into Manchester for some late night cocktails. Love all the new bars, outdoor seating and pedestrianised streets that have opened up recently.

Edit: It transpired that I caught Covid-19 on this evening. Still had a great time.

Revisiting cassettes

28th May 2021

Cassette player

Unearthing some old cassettes from the 1990s and letting them play for the first time in years. Lovely to hear some buzzing and hissing, modern formats are way too clean.

The Murder Stone

20th May 2021

The Murder Stone, Disley

My hike last night took me past 'The Murder Stone', on the road between Disley and Whaley Bridge. A terrible crime that took place in this beautiful setting almost 200 years ago.

Vaccination #1

Kristian Scott in face covering

First jab is in the arm! The setup at SportCity Manchester was impressive, such an efficient system that still felt personable. God bless the NHS!

Lunch on the rocks

7th May 2021

Sandwich at Black Rocks

One of the best things about working from home is having my 'office sandwich' away from the desk. Photo taken at Black Rocks, Disley.

'New' vinyl

5th May 2021

WDW album cover

Found this childhood favourite in the £2 box at New Mills record shop. One man's trash is another man's treasure!

Night hikes

27th April 2021

Factory at night

As the days get longer, I'm getting further afield with some late evening hikes. I took this shot before losing the sun completely and switching to torch light.

Cage Hill

22nd April 2021

Cage Hill, Lyme Park

The orienteering push continues, I have visited almost two thirds of the 'controls' in Lyme Park and have discovered some unique spots off the beaten track.

Stepping forwards

19th April 2021

Hoylake beach

Drove out to West Kirby beach for an old fashioned day at the seaside. I was snapping away on my iPhone and got lucky with this shot.

orienteering post

I'm giving orienteering a stab. It's a competetive sport to many, but to me it's treasure hunting for grown ups. I found eight 'controls' today in Lyme Park, many more to go.

Friends reunited...

10th April 2021


Finally got back together with friends today after a bleak winter. I relaxed my recent veggie lifestyle for this steak. Oh, and it snowed.

First post

Brookbottom Road

Another beautiful evening, a feeling of change in the air.
