The other day, after rediscovering 1600 images on the memory card in my old camera, I created a blogpost titled "Seaside" showing images of North Norfolk - especially around Hunstanton. Tonight I have picked out a further seven images to share - all from the last months of 2017.
The top picture was taken during one of my rambles in rural Derbyshire. It shows a traditional telephone box in the tiny hamlet of Dale End. I was pointing the camera towards the sun and this was the strange effect. Below Queen Victoria stands on her plinth near the main entrance to Endcliffe Park in Sheffield - half a mile from this keyboard. Though it may not look like it, the tree behind her is a copper beech in its autumn garb.
Below - a couple are walking along a snowy path in Graves Park, Sheffield. The photo was taken on December 11th, 2017:-
Above - this picture of East Wood was taken near the village of Docking in Norfolk. The wood looks like an island floating on a sea of golden wheat stubble - just after the harvest has been brought in and I like the drama of that threatening sky. Below - I love the charming name of that track in the village of Monyash - Icky Picky Lane. It sounds as though it should lead to a goblin's house. Winter sunshine was illuminating the sign quite splendidly:-
Above - a winter walk to Pike Hall in the Peak District with a view of Oddo House Farm. Below - abandoned millstones below the escarpment known as Stanage Edge. I am beguiled by such millstones and have taken many pictures of them.
