I was going to say this is my English country home, but alas no, it is Houghton Hall – one of England’s finest Palladian houses, built by Great Britain‘s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole in the 1720s.

Today is my mother’s 70th birthday – happy birthday Mum – and this is where we spent a very pleasant afternoon visiting the grounds and beautiful gardens.

So here it is, a cool picture…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

I have just arrived back home on holiday in Norfolk, England – home of the “Big Skies” after which my shop is named.  So I thought it apt that this week’s Friday Photo  was of those Big Skies over Brancaster beach, where I spent many hours in my childhood collecting shells, stones and all sorts of treasures.

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week: Big Skies – Brancaster Beach, Norfolk, England.

This week’s Friday Photo brings us back to Africa and Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia.  This photo is of a male Kudu – he is so magnificent, check out those ears and horns!  I think this photo gives you an idea of how well these animals can blend into the African bush.

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week’s Friday Photo was taken at the old harbour, in the port of Cadiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain, during my travels in Europe last year.  I am a bit of a sucker for palm trees and blue skies when I have a camera in my hand!

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week’s Friday Photo returns us to my love of birds.  This photo is of a Tawny Eagle which was taken during a visit to Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia, a fantastic place to view birds and wildlife.  The Tawny Eagle is a large bird of prey with a wingspan of 160-190cm / 63-76 inches, and it can weigh up to 3 kgs / 6.5 lbs.

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

Another week has gone by and Friday is here again; it’s been a good week at Big Skies Jewellery, I hope it has been for you too.

This week’s Friday Photo was taken looking over the very aptly named, Lincoln Memorial Reflection Pool towards the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C.   The monument, made of  marble, granite, and  bluestone gneiss, is both the world’s tallest stone structure and the world’s tallest obelisk, standing exactly 555 feet 5 and 1/8 inches (169.294 m).

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week: Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial Reflection Pool – Washington, D.C.

Whenever I look at this photo it always reminds of the film Forrest Gump; the part where Forrest runs through the reflection pool to get to his sweetheart.

Just Because It’s Friday Photo…..

As a jewellery artist I take a lot of inspiration from what I see when I am travelling.  Last year we were lucky enough to visit Italy – the history, architecture, art, food, shopping, scenery, people ….it was all amazing!

This week’s cool picture is of the Leaning Tower of Pisa – but not the usual view, this was taken at the base looking straight (albeit whilst I was leaning over!) up the tower.  So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!
