I'm now retired from my role as Primary Curriculum Development Leader for the Geographical Association in Sheffield. Hence the fact that there have been far fewer posts on this site recently. Life changes for us all! I'm still working on a Geography & Global Dimension Project with DECSY (South Yorkshire Development Education Centre).
We leave Crane Moor at 5am, black ice shining in the orange glow of the street light as we set off across the Pennines. Arriving in Manchester we find rain.

Soggy greens and browns appear as we take off … quickly followed by field patterns that tessellate black and white below.
Twenty minutes into our journey the River Thames comes into view and familiar London landmarks appear below.
Finally we arrive at Heathrow airport – Terminal 5 where flashing screens and pink butterflies distract us while we wait.
(These photographs were taken in February 2009 en-route to India. They form part of the India collection that I'm slowly uploading to Flickr. I thought that teachers might find them useful as some of them show field and settlements patterns in the snow below. There are also some very useful images of landmarks along the River Thames.)
