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 …

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 …

Hints of autumn among the deciduous trees, and the bracken is dying back. Our walk today took us along one of our favourite routes. A large tree had fallen across the path, possibly overnight, and formed a barrier to less able walkers, so I took photos and reported it to the Forestry Commission when we …
