Part 2 covered images taken in Georgia, showing the seemingly poverty – stricken state of the country, yet reflecting on beauty of the scenery and the friendliness of the people. Part 3 was a short but humbling trip to World War 1 battlefield locations, including the Menin Gate and war cemeteries. Part 4 illustrated the “ Coal Coast “ of Durham, showing the damage done by the dumping of coal waste, and views around Newcastle and the north-east of England. Finally he presented a series of superb landscapes taken on various trips to the north, from Helvellyn in the Lake District through Cockermouth to Glencoe. All sections were mainly in monochrome, but with a good selection of colour included.
