In a bit of a dash between dental appointments and a Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning, I squeezed in a couple of photo stops.
Well who could resist? It’s near Wildboarclough, Macclesfield Forest.
Then, chasing the light, I zipped off down towards Derbyshire Bridge, the light was too fast for me. But this caught my eye.
I’m not sure how best to explain, the terrain is rough moorland, peat and heather, as you look at the next photo, you can perhaps see (or imagine) how there is a clough, or gully, running from the ‘10 o’clock’ position towards the centre of the image, where it opens out into a boggy area, full of rushes, I’d expect the rushes to look like the swath of bright green in the centre of the image,
but something has laid them flat, like a thatch, a surge of water maybe? Or a vortex of wind? its a very exposed place. It did make me think of crop circles. Maybe at a certain point in the year, the rushes need a lie down?
Come along dear reader, what do you make of it?
