Cees Black & White Photo Challenge – Horns

Red-Stag-Grazing

Sometimes you get lucky when photographing Red Stags… this particular day it all worked out well. So when i heard that this weeks Cees BWC was Horns, I though I would post this image.

Now this Red Stag was wild, heading towards the rutting season… yet he was much more placid than the next two encounters…

It could be the Calm before the Storm

Shardlow, Trent and Mersey Canal, Derbyshire

Early morning sun on the Trent and Mersey Canal at Shardlow.  But the sun did little to ease the cold….it was the coldest morning so far this winter.  Till now, November has been a benign month. As for autumn, well if you blinked over the past week you would have missed it. 

Now the Met Forecasters tell us we have sever storms heading our way, so this truly could be the “calm before the storm”.

So this was a day to enjoy a winter walk along part of this historic canal..
