With the daily shot from my local forest, I’m including a shot of the wider world, not always entirely ‘natural’, to provide a wider view of the world and its wonders.

Share on social media so we’ll reach more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19. Who knows, between us, we might also restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the damage we inflict on our world? Thank you.

Like my pictures? You’ll find lots more in my professional gallery, here. A small selection’s also available via the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of this page.

  2. That picture looks like the road I walked on the way to school in the spring. The milk trucks made a mess of it. Yes, I know it was a hundred years ago, but I can still see the foot deep tracks they made. One had to make sure to balance between them or suffer the consequences. Sunset or sunrise pictures are always nice.

    1. The deep tracks here were probably made by motorbikes, Brenda, as the trail is used only by mountain bikers and walkers; no 4-wheeled motor access. But I can see how it might stir memories such as yours.

    1. Boots were essential on this track, Noelle. It’s part of a complex of cycle routes, and a short distance before I took this shot, we had to edge our way round the track where a stream had overflowed onto it and was draining over the edge down into its usual course. A touch dodgy!
      The sunset was caught on the ilsland of Crete. A relative of the owner of the hotel we were staying in owned a taverna up in the hills, a place called Paradiso with spectacular views. He took us, and some other visitors up there in his people carrier. So, 13 of us in a vehicle designed to carry 9. He took us through his home village where the roads were so narrow the walls and plants almost scraped the paint off the sides of the vehiclel. But we sat outside up at the top, and dined on delicious Greek food, drank some wonderful wine, listened to local music and watched the sun go down over Heraklion harbour. A fabulous experience. It was as well we were pretty well oiled on the very steep way back down, otherwise we might all have refused to complete the journey! I surrendered my seat to an elderly lady and scruched myself into the boot (I think you call that the trunk) which did have a rear window, fortunately!
