Photographs https://www.owlcats.co.uk/apps/photos/ Photographs Aeonium A difficult subject as the camera always insists on making the highlights blue, however this is my best attempt of a favourite plant from many failures https://www.owlcats.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=79932276 79932276 Mappa Mundi Lichen, the stuff that splodges itself over boulders.

Otterboards are the large metal plates which are used to keep the neck of a trawl net open.
