After Christmas Visit to Ely Cathedral


I visited Ely Cathedral for the Crib Service on Christmas Eve. The tree and Star of Bethlehem lights were quite impressive. I decided that I would visit with my camera after Christmas. I usually use my Canon for my Cathedral photos but this time I use the Olympus OMD EM1 mkii. I am very pleased with the images. The last two photos I was experimenting with the live composite mode.

Photo Quiz

Last Monday we had a Christmas Social at the Camera Club, for a bit of fun we decided to run a quiz.  Phil Miles was our main Quiztionaire and I was his 'glamorous assistant' :)

As part of the evening I created a Photo Quiz of things you may find around a house, well they were in my house.

I thought I would share the quiz with you all.

The Answers are in a list at the bottom of the Blog.

Guernsey 17 - German Military Underground Hospital

German Military Underground Hospital.

This is the largest remaining structure from the Occupation in the Channel Islands. Almost invisible from the surface the tunnel complex covers 7000 square metres. It was started in the winter of 1940, the first year of the Channel Island Occupation.

It was dug out by slave labour from France, Spain and other Allied forces. It took nearly 4 years to complete and work stopped just after D Day (June 1944). The tunnels where used to store animation and it was only used as a hospital for a few months after D Day. They found the damp conditions and lack of light for the patients not good for recovery.

The area was huge and we spent the majority of the afternoon there. It was cold and wet - but good photographic fun.
