Clifford’s Tower

Cliffords_MG_4898

Clifford’s Tower, York (North Yorkshire, England)  – in late afternoon Autumn sun.  Clifford’s Tower was the location of one of the worst anti-Semitic massacres of the Middle Ages (see English Heritage ).  In Spring the slopes erupt with the mass blooming of daffodils.

Model Plane

I saw the plane first, then I heard it, then I saw it’s owner.  I don’t know much about these things, but by my estimation the guy certainly knew what he was doing.  He didn’t have it tumbling around the sky like some demented mosquito – his control had the little buzzy thing performing a series of well controlled maneuvers between periods of level flight.
