Today’s Pictures: 26 Oct 20

The morning looked dull with skies full of potential rain, so we waited until after lunch for today’s walk. As it happened, the morning rain was sparse and short lived. But our afternoon saunter found us in a world full of contrasts in both light and shade and colour. Parts of the woodland have turned …

Horton Bridge. The forecast for today was, shall we say, variable? Rain was a possibility both this morning and this afternoon, with sunny periods in each half of the day. Here in the UK, our clocks go back an hour on the last Sunday in October, so the sun will set today around 16:54, making …

This forest road was constructed to allow traffic from the quarry. It now forms a wide and easy route for walkers. Very occasionally, it still serves the quarry, too. Drizzle when we set off on this morning’s walk in the forest, drizzle when we were returning home. But a dry spell in between. And our …

Kos in a Time of Covid 19: 6th and 7th Days.

Passing the castle walls. Thursday we decided to visit the Wetlands at Psalidi, where, apparently, a flock of flamingos feed in a small lake. The place is about 4 kilometres out of town, so we set off after breakfast, water in the backpack and camera on my shoulder. The coast of Turkey We passed the …

A brief respite from the wet weather today, bringing us bright sunshine. The next three days are forecast to be wet and windy. So, we took full advantage and set off after breakfast for our walk. We managed a four-mile saunter through the forest, and saw not another soul the entire time, which suited us …

Rain here all day today. Not the best weather for either walking or photography, though we’ll probably venture out when we spot a reduction in the amount of rain falling. I had to pop out earlier, however, and I’d been impressed by the colours in the trees bordering the local recreation ground, which I can …

We have occasional sunny intervals between the grey skies and blustery winds today, so I give you a shot of the forest under that fleeting sunshine, and a warm view of the Mediterranean taken in 2008 from the coast of the Greek island of Crete. If you’re visiting this blog, please be generous to those …

Even on grey days, the autumn colours can brighten the scene. As the season of mellow fruitfulness slowly builds here in the UK, our days will shorten, skies will more frequently grow grey, and rain will more often fall. So, when I can, I’ll include two pictures. Usually, one will be of the forest as …

Autumn has arrived here. The top picture is from today’s walk in the forest, this part on one of the old forest roads no longer in use for motorised traffic; the most it sees is a few mountain-bikers, the occasional horse rider, and a few dog walkers and others, like us, who enjoy the peace …
