Linford Bottom and the Smugglers Road
Friday, September 30th, 2011
Two walks – the morning at Linford Bottom and the afternoon from Vereley Hill – on a beautiful day.
A golden dawn, out in the field Wishful grazes peacefully…
…with Copper, of course.
Down at Linford Bottom, the mist has risen with the sun.
Looking over the brook, the sun is up over the trees of Little Linford Inclosure and the mist is short-lived.
Sun rays through the trees. Oh, and a cow’s behind 😉
From White Hill looking down Linford Bottom, still a little mist lingering.
The huge, bare branches of a very old oak tree.
On the edge of Pinnick Wood.
A dew laden dandelion head.
Smugglers Road from Vereley Hill Car Park
Over the hills and far away. The slopes of Broad Bottom, Cranes Moor beyond – all the way to Christchurch.
Up on the Smugglers Road, the heather along the edges still colourful.
From the Smugglers Road, a panomama with the slopes of Vereley Hill on the left, Little Castle Common and then the main bulk of Castle Hill, an iron age hillfort. Click on the image to see a larger version.
The lengthening shadows of the trees on the Smugglers Road cast over Vereley Hill.
A lone pine tree reflected with the colours of the setting sun in the dew pond on the side of Vales Moor.
I'd love to hear from you...
