Just back from today’s walk, taking advantage of a brief spell of relative calm from the wind and rain coming in from the Atlantic. More on its way.
But, undeterred, we trod the firm tracks and absorbed the spirit of the woods, made our daily connection with the trees. Wildlife mostly had the sense to stay under cover, so we saw only a couple of grey squirrels this walk. But the autumnal colours continue to express their brilliance among the dark, soaked trees and branches, bringing that joy in nature that lies so close to our hearts.
So, I give you a couple of shots from today, taken close together. And, in hopes of what might be to come this winter, a sunny shot from the coastal path from Dane’s Dyke to Flamborough in East Yorkshire, taken at the end of November 2012. Enjoy!
If you’re visiting this blog, please be generous to those who can’t escape their own four walls at present, and share this post widely with them on social media, so they can enjoy it. It will also reach more people and hopefully remind them what a wonderful place this world is. Perhaps that might help restore some love and respect for nature and slow down our destructive urge to ruin the environment. Thank you.
