In words and pictures
I love it! not only do you have to knock the ball through the hoops, but you also have to make it leap wide crevasses. That should add some interest to the game.
And then, of course, there's the gale force wind coming off the firth! :D
I love the color of the iron as it "puddles" around the hoops and the amazing purples! Excellent post!
nice play, interesting perspectives you took with the photos. nice pics.
Sure, I'll play. Pass me a mallet and I'll tee it up. I love rusted metal. These go so well with the ruggedness of the rock.
They are quite cool.
So, would those be wickets? (I do not know my croquet terminology.)
do they have a name other than 'hoops'? good question from steve, i'll bet they do have some obscurely british name or other...
It's been years since I have played croquet, but I'd love to give it a try.
Cool. They should put them on the Giant's Causeway in Ireland for added fun.
I love the colours in rusting metal - there's another photo in my next post, also taken on the coast in Scotland. Maybe the salt in the sea air aids the corrosive effect?I had to do a bit of googling as I've never played croquet (even tho' it's so terribly English.)They are indeed called hoops - I was quite disappointed that there wasn't a more eccentric word for them.I also found out that there are croquet world championships, also extreme croquet and a version played on bicycles!Who'da thunk it?(Love the idea of hoops on the Giant's Causeway!)
The best way to get through a tough time, is to focus on the positive. Well done and enjoy everything you like :-)
Those pictures of the rings are great...
