If you’re visiting here, please be generous to those who can’t escape their own four walls at present, and share this widely with them on social media, so they can enjoy it. It will also reach more people and hopefully remind them what …

Lakeside path. Yesterday, we visited the nearby spot known as Cannop Ponds. This is actually an area with a couple of small lakes, used for fishing and the enjoyment of walkers. The weather was about as ideal as it can be at this time of the year and I took a lot of photographs. I’m …

Bright sunshine greeted our morning, so we took a short drive to some local ponds (small lakes, really) and walked around one of them. I took a total of 225 pictures during our saunter. I’ve been a little busy since returning, so here’s the first picture I took. There will be others during the next …

Autumn colours brighten the shade. Another dull day here. But we managed a walk through a favourite part of the forest, and I captured a few scenes worthy of sharing. So here are a couple of those. The small brook was completely dry only three days ago, but the recent rain has revived it into …

A walk down a forest valley. After 36 hours of non-stop rain, we managed a walk this afternoon. But still rather dull. So, to brighten your day, here’s an earlier picture of the forest, taken when the sun was shining. If you’re visiting here, please be generous to those who can’t escape their own four …

Dusk in the forest. Yesterday, I ended my short annual period of online absence. You should try it: if you’re old enough, it will remind you what life was like before we were all enslaved by the social pressure of constant availability. If you’re too young to know such freedom, you’ll learn it’s possible to …

A quiet walk through part of the Forest of Dean. Every year, I have a complete break from the internet. I believe it keeps me sane. However, earlier this year, I committed to posting a picture of the outdoor world every day, to share with people stuck indoors mainly due to the Covid 19 crisis. …

The River Wye Valley, and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as seen from the veiwing platform at Symonds Yat. Each year, I take a complete break from the internet. I’m deluded into believing it keeps me sane. However, earlier this year, I made a commitment to post a picture of the outdoor world every …

Looking across the valley at the village in the Forest of Dean. Each year, I take a complete break from the internet. It recharges batteries and gives time to reflect on the world as it was before we were all required to be in constant contact. However, earlier this year, I made a commitment to …
