Monuments


Monuments, large objects, whether natural (such as Haytor) or man-made (such as Totnes Castle) are often hard to photograph from the ground, which makes them popular KAP subjects.

As usual, click on a picture to see a larger (800 by 600 pixel) version.

This picture (my entry in this year's JKPA competition) was taken in April 2004 using my original rig2 with an Ixus 2.1 Megapixel camera. I'm clearly visible on the mound at the right.
This picture was taken in late July 2004 using my rebuilt rig2 with an Ixus 5 Megapixel camera. Again I'm clearly visible on the mound at the right.

This picture neatly illustrates the highly dense, urban nature of Totnes, whose houses are packed tightly at the centre of the town.


Smeaton's Tower on Plymouth Hoe. Built in 1789, on Eddystone (26 miles off-shore), this light house was moved to Plymouth Hoe in 1884. This view is looking roughly north (away from the sea)
Another view of the top of the tower, looking roughly eastwards (towards the citadel).

A family exploring the view from the tower, with the Citadel and part of Plymouth Sound in the background.
Looking down on the roof of the tower with a good view of the weathervane.
