Weatherwise, it has been a pretty dull week up here in northern England. Not too unusual for mid-January. However, Wednesday was a crisp and wintry blue sky day. Before heading down to the Oxfam shop for my regular shift, I managed to squeeze in an hour's walk around Stanage Edge. It's a five minute drive from our home. Of course I took my camera.
Just past The Norfolk Arms at Ringinglow, the road rises higher still to open moorland. First Ringinglow Moor and then Burbage Moor. The scenery was dusted with snow and so was Stanage Edge and other higher ground in the area. I have seen this landscape in every season and every type of weather at different times of the day and night. It has become my homeland and on wintry Wednesday morning it was simply beautiful.
