I completely forgot the photo challenge last week! This week the theme is tunnel so I’ve been having a look through my photos…
…I haven’t got many photos of tunnels, probably because I don’t do dark, damp places! so I’m bending things a bit!
I love walking through tunnels of trees, this is down the lane behind our house, taken just a couple of weeks ago. The ground is really crunchy now with all the fallen leaves.
A greener tunnel from one of our walks.
This is the entrance to St Cuthberts Cave in Northumberland, which we visited whilst walking St Cuthberts Way in September…
Inside it looks slightly more tunnel like! There’s some very old graffiti carved into the stone, one date I saw was about 1786!
This is actually a collapsed tunnel from a cave system, we found it during a walk a couple of years ago, it had quite a special feeling to it, I seem to remember it was called a church or chapel and I could see why.
OK so this is under a bridge rather than a tunnel, but it’s close and I think it’s one of my best photos! It was taken on the Leeds Liverpool canal during our first canal boat holiday. We did go through Foulridge tunnel which is a mile long, whilst waiting our turn we chatted to a gent and it turned out he was one of the last people to ‘leg it’ through the tunnel when he was young. This is what they did when the barge was towed by a carthorse. The horse was taken over the top and the canal boatmen would be strapped to a board across the boat and they would ‘walk’ sideways along the walls to push the boat through!
OK so this one is maybe a bit smoochy and cheesy, me and my OH heading down the tunnel of love 🙂
The Friday Photo Challenge is organised by Postcard from Gibraltar, follow the link to see lots more tunnels.
