Ripples across Derwent Water

Derwent-Water-@-High-Brandlehow,-Cumbria-0732

There had been a storm overnight, but the following day at dawn the only sign of its passing were the ripples over Derwent Water.

Always nice to pause at Brandlehow Jetty whilst waiting for the small Ferry to take us over  to Keswick…..  a truly Cumbrian Lake District experience and always a pleasure

A Hot Day in the narrow Streets of Seville

It was a hot day in Seville, in the high 30’s and heading for 40c.  It is then that you understand and appreciate the high and narrow streets that help to provide a little shade and cool. 

A complete contrast to the tourist hotspots of this gloriously colourful and spectacular Andalusian City…

Lucky September Days…..

A very warm start to the day….. 4 consecutive days now.  There was a very light mist first thing but cleared as quickly as I manged to get my eyes open and start my day.  Bright sun but a very this layer of cloud just softening the  early light….all very nice and calm by the Lake.

But the season is moving along.  My favourite Silver Birch is changing colour…..  I say favourite, mainly because of its solo location against a low wall.  It did loose one of its trunks during gales in the early part of the year, so appearance has changed just a little…..

You don’t have to venture far into Big Wood before you loose the sun.  Some days its a welcome relief to head for the shade, today we just past swiftly through….

Once we got back to Lakeside the sun had increased in intensity, both warmth and strength…… its going to be a very hot day.  Forecaster’s reckon on reaching 29c in our part of the world.
