An Atmospheric Afternoon at Linford
Tuesday, February 1st, 2011
We’re still restricted in our walking to thirty minute lead walks owing to Harry’s torn tendon, so most of our walks are on paths we know to keep things quiet and under control. Linford is always different, but this afternoon we are treated to wonderful conditions that completely change the look of everything.
An extra, a wonderful sunrise from the farm this morning.
Down at Linford in the late afternoon, the sun has already dipped below the trees and all is quiet and still.
We paddle across the brook (nice bit of hydrotherapy for Harry’s shoulder) and look back along the brook.
Ahead of us the mist is rising over the green ride through Linford Bottom.
Behind us, the view becomes shrouded and spooky.
The mist starts to absorb the light from the sunset. Beautiful!
One of the oak tress provides a fine foreground for the sunset.
Zooming in a bit…
…and from under one of its lower branches.
On our way back now the mist and light are a joy. A plane leaves a straight contrail heading east and the mist makes the sunset seem brighter.
Back at the brook and the flat calm of the water reflects the light…
…and the same view as before when we set out, but the mist has now gathered around the water.
I'd love to hear from you...
