Linford morning, Ibsley evening and baby donkeys
Friday, August 13th, 2010
Walks on the 13th but first a couple of baby donkeys from the previous evening.
Little dappled white donkey.
Aren’t I pretty?
Linford Bottom. The whole gravel area in the bottom right is the Linford Brook, dry as a bone at the moment.
Walking on the path alongside Great Linford Inclosure, heavy clouds hold the potential of rain for the parched earth.
On Ibsley Common in the evening, the heavy clouds still in evidence looking across the old gravel pit, but still none of them seem inclined to give us rain.
A foal takes a rest in the cover of the bracken.
The lowering sun behind the thick cloud sends down crepascular rays over distant Dorset.
Towards Newlands Plantation in the distance, the heather is a purple haze.
The dark clouds give way to brighter skies above.
Zooming into the distance, a break in the clouds reveals a mix of bright lined clouds and the sun’s rays.
A huge cloud forms in the south east. Perhaps that one will provide some much needed rain!.
I'd love to hear from you...
