Today’s Pictures: 15 Jan 21

Back to the original project to share natural beauty with everyone who is confined indoors due to Covid-19.

The more people who share these posts on social media with their friends and followers, the more people we’ll reach. And it’ll also show more of them our wonderful world. Maybe, between us, we can restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the growing damage we’re inflicting on our environment. Thank you.

By the way, if you enjoy my pictures, why not have a look at my gallery? You’ll find it here. A small selection is also available through the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of this page.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. The big branch fell sometime during 2020. We’d used the path a few times without any obstruction, then didn’t visit that part of the forest for a while and when we returned the branch had collapsed. We followed the actions of other walkers and made a new path avoiding the bough, as it doesn’t look too securely joined to the tree from which it broke!

      1. It’s so dramatic when a branch falls like that, but not often seen. I grew up in a town in the northeast in which one of the streets had a big tree in the middle of the road – they built the road around it. The story was that George Washington had tied his horse to it. One day my mother and niece were walking into town and when they came back it had fallen – no one had seen it!

        1. It is, Barbara. I’m relatively familiar with the original Washington, near Sunderland, as my wife originates from there. Didn’t know about the fallen tree, though. Do you know which street it was? Have to have a look next time we’re up there.

    1. Thanks, Joni. We’d celebrated 6 years in the forest the previous day, so yesterday’s was a shorter walk in dull weather. Today is looking better; sun shine and a rise in temperatures. But I’m currnetly working on a new series of posts for the blog to do with writing, so our walk will have to wait till after lunch.
      Keep safe and stay well.

      1. That sounds interesting. I will have to go into your site and make sure I haven’t missed anything. Six years, no wonder it feels like your forest. You two stay safe. Sending love and hugs. 💕❤️Joni

        1. Oh, Joni, I lied! About ten minutes after I posted this, Valerie popped upstairs, noted the sunshine outside and suggested we take our walk straightaway. So, we walked five miles as the sun shone but was slowly clouded over. Pleasant walk. And we came upon a group of Sika Deer some distance off the path as we were returning home. They’re very shy and I couldn’t get close enough to get a decent picture, unfortunately. But lovely to see them.
          Now I’m going to tackle the start of that new series. Haven’t written any of the posts yet, let alone posted one, so you haven’t missed anything.

  2. A tree fell in the forest, and no one was there to hear it fall. When I looked at the puddle I thought the little sticks were ice. I liked the reflection of the trees in the water. Looking at the ocean waves always soothes me. Thanks for posting.

    1. The tree fell across one of the tracks we use often, Brenda. Ourselves, and other walkers, have formed a slight detour, as the large branch is attached only by a small piece of timber to the tree and may fall at any time!
      The puddle is a mix of ice and some small twigs,
      The waves are on Lake Maggiore in Italy, caused by the wake of the ferry as it approached the dock at Stresa, at the end of a lovely day touring the large lake.
