It's another walk post today.
Yesterday's 8 mile walk was around Shipley Country Park.
The day started out gloomy, really gloomy, with a little rain. It was typical of "The dark days before Christmas", as an old lady I loved called them.
I didn't feel inclined to get my camera out until late morning, when happily the sun appeared.
Being out in the sun in winter is such a treat isn't it. Suddenly the world looks pretty again and it's never unpleasantly hot. Just a fleeting joy in the short days of winter.
Happily we were at the highest point of the park , sunshine and a view...yipee.
This stunning Beech tree caught my eye, with it's twisted roots.
Oh the midday sunlight, so low and magical. It shone right into the woodland.
Though the leaves were all on the ground the woodland still looked autumnal.
This colourful view delighted me. The silver birch and the flame branches of the Dogwood were a brilliant contrast.
All too soon that magical light was gone. It felt like winter once more.
I do hope you enjoyed the pictures lovelies.
