Bombs away

bomb crater

This is a bomb crater on Limpsfield Chart near Oxted in Surrey.  I understand that German bombers in the Second World War used to drop their bombs here in the countryside if they had any left over after blitzing London, before heading back over the channel to their bases in occupied France.  There are several craters in the forest, and on one occassion some houses in nearby Oxted were hit.  Mostly it was the squirrels who had to scurry for cover.

On Tuesday night I leave for a seven day trip to Dubai (and Muscat) for my twin cousins’ 30th birthday celebrations. I am not sure that I will be willing or able to blog from there, so I have pre-prepared the next 7 days worth of postings in advance.  If I get the chance these might be interspersed with postcards from the desert.

In the meantime do keep an eye on bluemeanie’s blog.

That’s a really nice shot of the crater; I couldn’t get one so good, although I think this may be to do with my zoom and the angle I was shooting (sorry!) from.

Yes I have a wide-angle lens, which helps.
