Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

While Malcolm and I were enjoying the delights of Croatia, it seems that autumn took hold back home and we got back to see some spectacular colour around Shipley Park. This gorgeous specimen is a fine old Beech tree on Shipley Hill.
Looking at the hill from below, the trees are like a distant wall of colour.
The old car parks always provide some lovely sights at this time of year...
and close to old pit head workings, there is one maple in particular, which almost shouts its presence in shades of gold and red.
Worth taking a closer look at this one...
No doubt there will be a lot more pictures like these in the days to come.
