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.

Just a couple more pictures this morning, from our recent walks around Shipley Hill. Not surprisingly, they feature the golden hues of autumn very heavily.
With the sun low in the sky at this time of year, I was surprised to see so much green left in the leaves of some trees, while others have shed theirs to form a golden brown carpet on the ground beneath.
Looking the other way, down the hill and back towards the lake, what's left of the canopy of leaves, still forms a tunnel of foliage making for a rather picturesque walk down through the trees.
After a few lovely days of chilly weather and sunshine, this morning is dull, wet and rather miserable, so we are sitting inside, waiting for the drizzle to clear away before setting out.
