Today’s Pictures: 10 Nov 20

November sun in the Forest of Dean.

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.

    1. Thanks, Lynette. It’s the time of year when we have to look out of the window, see if it’s not raining, and then get out there. Mild at present, unseasonally so, but also often wet. But better for us than your constant, and growing, cold, I think!

      1. Yes. -18C this morning but it’s predicted to be -8 tomorrow. This variation isn’t normal here. Usually it’s a fairly straight descent until we reach about -45, then a slow climb. We’re seeing climate change symptoms, I think.

        1. It’s happeneing everywhere, Lynette. The politicians (mostly), and the vast bulk of the public don’t want to face the reality, because it requires changes to lifestyle, a fairer world, reduced population, and a proper approach to limited resources. The problem is that we need to act now; trying to fix this even ten years down the road will be so much more difficult and expensive. But convincing people of this reality is really difficult: no one want so accept bad news, after all.
          You keep warm up there. Today, we have a sunnyish day, with temperatures around 3C higher than usual, so, after our visit to the local shop for some fresh food, we’ll be into the forest to enjoy the nature there.

            1. I suspect you’re right, Lynette. Nature will force a change on us, and then we’ll have no choice but to try to survive in a world for which we will be ill-fitted. But that’s the way most former regional civilisations ended. This time it will be global. It is so sad, as we do have a choice and we could do something positive to avoid the coming catastrophe.

  2. Stuart these are so nice. I love the one from Samos, what a gorgeous creek and the older growth trees. Great shots. Hope you two are having a great day. Sending you both love. 💕❤️🤗Joni

    1. Thanks, Joni. It was one of a few walks we managed on Samos. Always lovely and hot, but rocky underfoot. And we rarely saw anyone else, which is how we like it.
      The oak grove close to home is starting to turn colour now, and I spent most of yesterday’s walk taking pictures of the many different fallen leaves on the forest floor. Today looks like rain pretty much for all the hours of daylight, so we’ll have to see when we can get out there.
      Keep safe and stay well.

      1. You too my friend. It must rain quite a bit that there. It rained all winter in Seattle too. After 90 straight days we had enough ( it was a record but still miserable).

        I bet the leaves are beautiful this time of year. Stay safe too my friends. I am glad you are not around too many people.
        Love ❤️ to you both. Joni
