Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England



By the banks of Kinder river a  recent flash flood had left pools of chocolate brown peat, swept down from the Kinder plateau, so ‘Green and Black’ in colour and texture it almost gave me a migraine to look at it

Green and Black-0942

It had baked dry on the rocks

Peat Rock-0943

I’d have liked to seen the river in full spate, but we wouldn’t have been able to zigzag across the river as we had done to get to this point.


Crossing from rock to rock

Rock pool-0873

We found a  very handsome duck family, lurking in the undergrowth

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  2. Rain, rain, flash floods, rain, rain – what happened to the Summer and Global warming?

    As per normal you have posted a great series of photographs.

    I like crossing the stream – the water is so crystal clear
