Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

Discoveries, discoveries…

25th June 2008

The prospect of seeing something new has often been a great motivator for me when it comes to enjoying the outdoors. The sunny weather on Monday had me out and about locally only for me to discover a reservoir within the town of Macclesfield that I didn’t even know was there; I have been living around these parts for eight years and I still keep finding new things. Speaking of discoveries, I made one yesterday that I’d rather have not seen: a manifestation of the Internet Explorer “peekaboo” bug on my new thumbnail gallery pages. Some of the image caption text wasn’t being displayed and last night’s being dull allowed for a night in to quash the thing after a combination of googling and tinkering. Being a Linux and Firefox user, I suppose that I slipped up on my IE testing but that’s another reminder of an old lesson. Anyway, all’s well now and my mind is again free to turn its attention out of doors, opportunities allowing.
