Scene on the way home

Monday 13th September 2021, 9.55am (day 3,672)

Near Biggar, 13/9/21

Spent most of the day until 2.30pm behind the wheel, and the rest sat at home recovering from the first part of the day. But this scene did cause me to pause on the way home, on the A702 just north of Biggar, in southern Scotland. I’m not sure I’ve quite captured the sunbeam effect, but I did my best.

Gate to the woods

Thursday 25th June 2020, 7.55am (day 3,227)

Gate to woods, 25/6/20

What’s been lacking over the last three months is not just variety of scene, but variety of event. There’s nothing happening, no parties, no shows, no sports, no conviviality. We just plod on.

At least there is still variety of light. The morning, indeed the whole day, was a beautiful one. This becomes the first pre-8am shot since I was still commuting to Manchester at the beginning of February. But this one is taken within yards of my house, and despite the glorious weather was one of only two photos I felt moved to take today.

House view, Sunday afternoon

Sunday 15th October 2017, 2.55pm (day 2,243)

HB sunbeams, 15/10/17

The rather impressive topography of my home town hasn’t really had an outing on this blog for a while, but on another Sunday where not a great deal else happened, it can be permitted to save the day.

Great Langdale

Tuesday 25th July 2017, 5.15pm (day 2,161)

Sunbeams in Langdale. 25/7/17

I’m a few days behind, due to wi-fi issues at the first place we stayed this week. But oh yes — I’m definitely in the Lake District 🙂

Coverdale

Sunday 4th October 2015, 2.05pm (day 1,501)

Coverdale, 4/10/15

It is nearly 24 years since I turned up one evening in Yorkshire (10th October 1991) on the assumption it would be another temporary stay. I’m still there. There are reasons for this.

Environmental capital (old and new)

Monday 29th December 2014, 3.45pm (day 1,222)

Environmental capital, 29/12/14

Pictured towards the end of the 15-mile walk I did today, heading north from Ulverston, Cumbria, and dropping down to the Duddon estuary near Kirkby-in-Furness. The wind farm is offshore; the sheep defiantly onshore, both represent the same thing at heart. More pictures from the day (and I have several that I like) will be on my walking blog later today.
