The hedgerows are bare now except for a few Gorse flowers and hawthorn berries which add their colour to an otherwise grey and wintry scene. The taller grasses too, were still covered with a light frost when we set out. Much of which had gone by the time we returned.
Through the village with a few Christmas trimmings starting to appear and on to the reservoir where the scene was less frosty but no less beautiful .
From here, we climbed Shipley Hill in the sunshine...
Then it was through the woods and down towards Shipley Lake before returning home for a cup of hot coffee. No doubt there will be more winter walks over the coming weeks and hopefully, I will have my camera with me then!
