Weekend Misc: Mars, Sunsets and Rainbows, Autumn and Norwich Cathedral - 29th October 2005

A round-up of several miscellaneous things. First up, there's another astronomical photo, this time of Mars. Once again, it's not exactly going to challenge Hubble, but the point is that this was taken on my normal camera, albeit with a 1000mm lens. Next, there's a great sunset just outside Cambridge, on the way home from work, plus a few headlight trails. The Boy Phil's parents' car explodes, blowing the oil filter off and ripping a chunk out of the crank case. Then, some autumn leaves and finally, a trip to Norwich, including Elm Hill and Norwich Cathedral.
