Waterfall, from above

Tuesday 3rd April 2018, 3.45pm (day 2,413)

Nutclough waterfall, 3/4/18

Another less-than-exciting day in this rather gloomy and light-free Easter break. Managed a short walk in the woods in the afternoon but that was about it. This is the waterfall that spills out from under the bridge at the top of the woods, taken from above, looking down from the bridge. It has turned out more of an abstract and I’m not sure that it says anything in particular but at least it’s different.

In Nutclough Woods

Saturday 13th August 2016, 2.15pm (day 1,815)

Nutclough Woods, 13/8/16

I feel I’ve shown what I wanted to show about this tree, so that gratifies me.

In the woods (yoga tree)

Thursday 5th May 2016, 10.15am (day 1,715)

Yoga tree, 5/5/16

After a horribly cold spell — we had snow last Friday, though it didn’t get depicted on here (too depressing) — spring seems to have re-installed successfully. This is good news.

Why ‘yoga tree’? Something about the way this one is stretching its whole body and two arms up to salute the sun?

Light rain shower in the woods

Monday 16th November 2015, 1.55pm (day 1,544)

Rain shower, woods, 16/11/15

Worked at home today, and tried to enjoy doing so as it’s my only chance this week. The weather relented, at least for today, and it was quite sunny and pleasant. I took a walk in the woods at lunchtime for the fresh air and while I did a most delicate rain shower came down, just for half a minute or so and backlit by wan November sunlight. This shot has probably turned out a bit too messy to be quite the capture I wanted it to be, but it was my best attempt in the moment.

Nutclough Woods, November 1st

Sunday 1st November 2015, 1.50pm (day 1,529)

November day, 1/11/15

Utterly glorious day today. I suspect the chances of the rest of November being like this are remote, but hey, we can hope.

Water race, Nutclough Woods

Saturday 3rd October 2015, 2.25pm (day 1,500)

Water race, 3/10/15

Welcome to day 1,500 of the blog, One and a half thousand days turns out to be 4 years, 1 month and 8 days in old money. The path through Nutclough Woods was closed for ages as the flood defenses at the bottom were rebuilt (three years after they were needed); but it is now open again, so let’s use this milestone date to celebrate that fact. The weather has turned autumnal, but the trees remain in summer green for now.

In the snow

Wednesday 21st January 2015, 12.25pm (day 1,245)

Clare in snow, 21/1/15

It snowed again. A lot. Enough to make it kind of enjoyable, and that’s why I like this picture — the look of pleasure on Clare’s face. OK, let’s self-criticse about the tree growing out of her shoulder, but hey.

The Nutclough mill-pond

Wednesday 14th January 2015, 8.45am (day 1,238)

Millpond, 14/1/15

A little snow this morning, enough to provide the sort of wintry scene I was hoping for yesterday, but not enough to last through the day. Took myself up into the wood before work to see what I could capture, and took this one before the posse of ducks drifted in front of the fallen branches and spoiled the reflections.

The last walk of the Christmas break

Sunday 4th January 2015, 11.45am (day 1,228)

Dog walking, 4/1/15

At least since Christmas Day it’s been a pleasant break with lots of chances to get outdoors. It’s no coincidence that there’ve been plenty of landscape shots on here in the last 10 days, and here’s another one. The whole house goes back to work and/or school tomorrow: which I guess is the case for many of us. H0pe you had a good one.

Autumn colours, Nutclough Woods

Saturday 1st November 2014, 2.35pm (day 1,164)

Autumn woods, 1/11/14

A weekend at home, with no work, and there haven’t been many of those lately so let’s make the most of it. Though stormier by the evening much of today remained mild and bright, and with colours like these sometimes you may as well just go with the cliched shot.
