Sunday photos: pine woods

It’s been another busy week. I’ve finished the proof corrections to the guide book which is a huge relief. As I’ve probably mentioned quite a few times, I’ve been trying to finish the guide book update for at least three years. It will be fantastic when the corrections are done and checked, and I can send it to the printers.

The whodunnit edit is now up to chaper 54 (of 102) so that’s good progress too. And I’ve happily made more notes on sleep disorders and a possibe character for the next one.

These photos are all from the pine forest near El Pilar. Something weird happened when I uploaded the photos from the camera and I lost about 70 of them. It’s not as bad as that might sound because I’ve still got over a hundred, but it’s worrying. I thought I had some nice ones of ravens, but ravens are not hard to find and phootgraph here. Mostly, I’m just worried that it’ll happen again and I’ll lose something more important.
