There’s been a lot of rain this week. Quite a lot of it fell on my day off, when I went for a walk by a river. I snatched some photos on my phone…
The roads were wet and the river was full. Brown, muddy water, moving much too quickly for my liking.
Bowed and broken branches.
Spring is not here yet. Not here. Not quite.
Where will the weekend take you?
Not that I need an excuse, but here’s a photograph I’d like to share with you on this warm June evening.
I’m really enjoying my blog’s new look (the Twenty Sixteen Theme) and I keep finding myself wanting to add more posts to see how they work. Got to be good if it encourages me to post more frequently!
I like the clean, uncluttered layout as well as the fact that it seems to display content attractively, whether on PC, tablet or phone. Photographs look bright and stand out clearly against the white background. I love the way my Instagram photos appear to the right of the latest post.
… and I decided to make the most of it by taking not one, but two walks.
It’s usually a problem, when Easter is so early, to find that elusive window of warm weather. I knew I couldn’t waste it when it arrived. So, off I set to a local park, where Spring is revealing itself in flowers and frogspawn. Fortified with optimism, I ventured further afield, to the uplands, where curlews bubbled, and lapwings (too few these days, alas) posed elegantly in the glowing fields.
Here are some pictures. More to follow possibly, as an antidote to the blustery grey that’s masquerading as Spring this week!
A hint of warmth in the sun. Colours muted, hesitant. A few glinting celandines.
This blog is developing a mind of its own; at the moment it seems to be more about walking and photography than I’d originally planned. Not much progress possible in the garden at the moment, due to grey mist and cold mud, so went for a walk by a river to relieve the gloom. Excitement of seeing my first ever goldcrest! No photograph of it, I’m afraid, so here is one of a robin taking shelter from the drizzle instead.
