Back in January I showed you a shimmery image taken at dusk, of the burning rhododendrons that were being cleared from the moor.
We went to take a closer look, in the clear light of Spring the scale of the job,of ridding the moor of this invasive species was bigger than I imagined from afar
The job is not over yet (well I hope it isn’t it is a bit of a mess up there) and even where they had supposedly been cleared tenacious rhododendrons are clinging to life amongst the debris.
Last year the foreground in this shoot would have been filled with rhododendrons
It is when you see them in isolation, as here, they look so alien,
like it has been beamed in from another land (if not world) you can just tell as a species they are ‘not local’ I’ve a busy day tomorrow, where I can expect the unexpected; however Spud the dog will be back in action on Sunday, that is a promise.
