Silent Sunday

Dorset, England



A most glorious walk on Sunday: we walked along a ridge, part of the Wessex Ridgeway, and then down into the valley and along the opposite ridge which forms the horizon. I love long walks when you can see exactly where you have been.


A perfect day ends

With tears of joy and champagne

We celebrate life

Following the path alongside the river

I love the way the trees form an arch and the way the winter sun slants in to light the way

ooo00000 those reflections – they always get me, and I just have to stop and look, and watch the light play on the surface of the water



and when I can bring myself to leave, we head back cross the water meadows


under a clear blue sky

they seem like sculptures of history to me.wdorchAt the end of the meadow through a muddy gateway, and back into town.              I realise I do much more walking in the Winter. It must be because gardening takes up so much time in other seasons.                                                                     You can see the beginning of the walk here.
