Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Pictures in the park

I sincerely hope that this winter is not

typical of what is to come with the advent of climate change.

At least not in my life time.  (On a purely selfish note.)

High winds and low cloud make the mountain tops dangerous

and less than attractive places to walk.

Trees

Lowlands still have things to offer, so neither my camera nor I remained under wraps.

Levens Park has lots of family heritage as well as being lovely walk.  My Great x3 Grandfather was head gardener and helped shaped the topiary in the formal garden, but that wasn’t my destination.

Wet and blustery it was, but between the clouds the sun picked out the trees and magnified the colours.

Never really short of subjects to photograph, I have been known to photograph my socks, I delved, (or is it dove?) into a Christmas present The Photographer’s Playbook.  If not for inspiration, then maybe for a theme.

Beech trees

I kind of cheated.  Picking a page which said ‘look for the light’.  I knew that would be easy today.

The trees in the park are wonderful at any time of year.  Beeches abound but most famous is the mile long avenue of ancient oak trees.

If you enjoy my pictures and words, please like and share.
