Went for a walk

We had a rare day of warmth and sunshine yesterday, so I decided to go for a walk. I love walking, but I rarely get a chance to do it. Or I rarely make the effort – or something! But anyway, I have signed up for a sponsored walk next weekend in aid of this year’s “sports and social” chosen charity at work, and I thought I ought to do a little practise, and see if my walking trainers are okay etc etc. So here is my walk:

Out of town, under the motorway bridge, and up to the first stile.
Stile

Over the stile, along the edge of the field, saying hello to the dog walkers going the other way. Come across a tiny trip-trap bridge. Don’t think any goblins lived underneath it though.
Another one of those slightly pointless stiles

Paused to reminisce at the Christmas Day pointless stile…(now covered in summer)
Overgrown slightly pointless stile

Then off over through the field. Looks inviting?
Wandered through a field....

What’s that through the gap in the hedge?
Through a gap in the hedge

More field..!
Up over the hilll

Spot a flash of red amongst the wheat? Barley?
Flash of red

Paused to admire the furrows in the ground…
Paused to admire the furrows in the land

…and to smell the Cow Parsley.
Smelt the cow parsley

Back up the lane – which way to go?
Stumbled upon an old sepia roadsign

A bit more than a flash of red catches my eye.
Spotted more than a flash of red....

And then back over the motorway and into the field of gold.
Found a field of gold

Perfect sky…
Saw a blinding light in the sky

Then back home along the abandoned lane…
And finally home...

    Oh Nezza, those are just beautiful! More field!, the furrows, and perfect sky are so beautifully composed. Great job! Thanks for sharing your walk with us. A really great post.
    Your countryside is so scenic it would be a CRIME not to walk more often (with a camera, of course.)
