Rain is on the Way……

The prediction is for rain, well that is what those who know best are saying.   So as the sun had woken up on time this morning, it seemed like the best thing to do…. get out and enjoy it whilst it lasts.

A  woodland walk took out fancy, so off we headed for Big Wood.  At this time of the year Big Wood is a great mix of Pine, Birch, Ferns and Bracken, with a few Oak for good measure.  The warm sun does bring out those rich woodland smells, the dry leaves under foot crackle,  as you walk though the bracken edged paths.  All rather good and great to lift the spirits.

Late afternoon now and the rain has just started…..   perhaps its  just as well.  The Met. Office is forecasting another of those mini heatwaves,  they now seem to be part of this summers weather pattern   🙂

Wordless Wednesday …… Another Favourite Place

12-Dec-DOI_5154_00005aaa

Location.    Dawn overlooking Letterewe Forest from Leathad Daraich Pass above Poolewe, West Ross, Scotland.

(  I know its Wordless Wednesday, but the back story made this picture….. A favourite view of the wildland behind Slioch to the north of the Torridons.  Apart from the view, I love this shot because it is not the shot I had intended. The previous afternoon I was at this location and thought it the ideal spot for a dawn sunrise.  The forecast was good, so an early start with Buster and off we headed.  Got there in good time….but as we reached the location,  this thin layer of cloud came over and we lost the sunrise.  Hung around for awhile but this was as good as it was going to get…  so nothing for it but to head back for breakfast)
