Hill

A nice walk this morning, took us around Shipley Lake, along to Osborne's Pond, then up Shipley Hill before completing the 'circuit' and returning home.
The walk up the afforded some nice views across Shipley Park especially with the continuing, fine Autumn colours.  These two trees were still hanging on to most of their leaves despite the strengthening wind.
Looking like sentinels against the grey sky, they seem to sum up the time of year rather well.
Reaching the top of the hill, we turned south to return home and get the views across Ilkeston.  The magnificent Beech tree which stands guard at this point has lost all of its leaves being so exposed.  Most of them are still surrounding the tree's beautiful roots making for an interesting picture and something of an 'arty' shot.
