Walking in the Rain

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.

Mossy trees.

Bowed and broken branches.

Dark fields.

Spring is not here yet. Not here. Not quite.

A Glimpse of Spring

Rejoice! The clocks have gone forward and it’s going to be lighter this evening. However, it still feels too cold for this time of year, and I’m told we’re going to be plunged back into wintry weather next week. So I was anxious to get out for a walk this afternoon; I hope  these images will keep up my spirits on the journey to work in the morning!

Ringlet

I’ve realised with a shock how long it is since I last wrote anything on here. So I’m planning to make amends, and dip my toes back in the water, by posting pictures of some of the wildlife I’ve seen this summer. Starting with a ringlet butterfly. I’d never seen one before, although I don’t think they are uncommon, so I was very excited!
