It’s summer now and lots of events are taking place around the country. This photo is from the annual Dragon Boat race which is held in Brindley Place and raises money for charity.
POTW Week 12 - Paul Stokes - Women's Cycle Tour
The OVO Energy Women Tour is six stages of cycling across England and Wales of the worlds elite women cyclists. The forth day (stage 4) came through Bulkington, Bedworth and surrounding areas. This is the Peloton group coming through Bulkington. The stage was 158 km long and took just 4 hours and 35 minutes to complete. They came and went in a flash!!
POTW Week 11 - Rex Coleman - Audley End
Audley End House
One of the greatest house's in early 17th century England . In about 1605-14
Thomas Howard 1st Earl of Suffolk built it on the site of the former Walden Abbey.
Robert Adam rebuilt it for Sir John Griffin in 1760 while Capability Brown remodeled the surrounding parkland.
POTW Week 10 - Paul Stokes - Porthleven Quay
Porthleven is a pretty small Cornish Costal Harbour tourist resort.
On a short break I took this picture at the end of the quay, this happens twice a day every day. Unfortunately the tide height was reasonably low but managed to get this image.
The quay is about 100 yards long and it was built to provide safety from the Atlantic waves. Other defences have to be positioned when winter storms and high tides are forecast to protect the harbour and surrounding properties. Many hours are spent by people watching and dodging the waves.
Very high tides in winter can produce some fantastic photographic pictures.

POTW Week 9 - June Davis - Veronica
This picture is in memory of my friend.
We were out taking some shots for a future competition and I decided to take a picture whilst Veronica was enjoying the view, this was taken on 26th March 2019 and Veronica passed away suddenly on the 28th March 2019.
I miss my friend.

Chris Baker - Sunlit Tulip
The tulip was enjoying the sun in the back garden as much as I was. It was shining back brightly, and was wide open to catch the rays. It therefore had to be photographed... not even on macro setting, fore-arms on knees for stability, whilst sitting in front of it. A polarising lens prevented reflected glare. A watering can provided the "dew-drops".
Chris Baker - Knife Angel
I happened to be in Coventry at the same time as the Knife Angel, and couldn't resist the shot.
The sculpture was made at the British Iron Works in Oswestry, Shropshire by sculptor Alfie Bradley using over 100,000 knives/blades etc provided by (eventually) all the police forces in the UK. It has toured several British cities as part of a campaign to highlight/reduce knife-crime.

Lamb and Sheep - © Robert Morris
For the first photo of the week I thought of where I'd been and what photos I have of the start of Spring. I chose this one to represent the many lambs being born across the country at this time of year.
