Just another walk

On another 13 mile walk I came across this chalk hole, confirming that the North Downs is very much a chalky landscape. That’s a great tumbledown shed in the background!

I like this signpost

White bushes were everywhere

A typical path through the trees

In an enormous field populated by many sheep, interesting shadows

Slopes make for an interesting image

And near the end, a lovely tree and hedge

Losing one’s way

With lots of Photoshopping I can knock off maybe 20 years, though my son’s first reaction was “That looks very odd!”. Well, son, that’s what I intended, so there!

Walking south and uphill there was still a fair amount of snow to be found on today’s shortish walk.

A couple of days ago I did a longer walk in the same area. Then, in much worse conditions, I managed to become quite disorientated. Today’s walk was to figure out how I’d managed to end up where I had – which I managed to do. When the conditions are poor and everything’s covered in snow, and when you’re not paying sufficient attention to your surroundings, it’s quite easy to lose track of one’s location – despite having, as I did, the Ordnance Survey map app and GPS on the phone! Just as well I was in North Surrey and not North Wales…

A Grand Canyon walk

I came across this YouTube video and was knocked out. I’d love to do this Grand Canyon walk, but if not, this video is close enough to the real thing. On first viewing I thought the narrow path was rather scary, but each time I’ve come back to the video I’ve thought “I could do that!”. If you can watch it full screen and in HD (ideally 4K if your computer and broadband are up to it), you’ll get the maximum experience. Magnificent.

Art in the park

The entrance to Studio 9 of the Oaks Park Studios is not very inviting.
It looks like something one might have found in Eastern Europe circa 1950.

Stacked branches reminded me of………
