Moody Monday….. Storm Clouds

Storm clouds approach from the South West

Looking down the Lynn of Lorn on Loch Linnhe, Argyll & Bute, Scotland.

I thought this a suitably moody image for another Monday in Lockdown.  Moody as it is, as threatening as those clouds looked (and they did bring heavy rains)…I wouldn’t mind standing there, right now, and gazing down the Loch.  Just another memory of a life that does seem such a long time ago.

Better times will return, till then….

Moody Monday……. Oh! for a Walk along a Beach

DOI_5435_00038-web1000x1500U-100

Right now there is nothing I would love better than a walk along a beach.  Any beach, sand, sea and that magical fresh marine ozone……..  distance and restrictions conspire against us.   It has been along time since we were able to enjoy that simple pleasure.

One day, sometime…. till then…

Moody Monday……. On the Moor

Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire

The Old Sheep Pens on Howden Moor, Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire.  Sometimes idyllic, but for much of the time rather bleak.  The numbers of sheep that graze these moors has been drastically reduced in recent years.  It  took sometime for the penny to drop that these moors were being over grazed.  Now a tree planting scheme is underway on these moorland slopes.
