Once upon a time,
in the days when we were allowed to walk a little further than just from home, remember them?🙄
No, I'm not so sure I do either.... any hoo - it was one of those days when Himself, Youngest and Moss took ourselves out on a crisp wintery late afternoon walk along one of our favourite (and least muddy) paths.
It was lovely and dry with the palest of pale blue skies. We walked along the canal towpath admiring the reflections and stillness of the evening air. There were very few folk about, possibly a combination of the lateness of the day and brittle chilly air, we didn't mind - it meant a brisk walk without the usual 'covid-two-step
' when meeting someone oncoming along a narrow foot path.
Our walk had us walking away from our starting point towards the setting sun giving us beautiful clear views. Then at the furthest point, the sun now gone and any hint of warmth rapidly vanishing, we turned off the canal path and into the fields to return.
As we crossed the canal bridge, there in the distance far far behind us, was the softest pink moon emerging from the quietly gathering clouds.
We stopped and admired it for the merest of times, our breath hanging around us in wreathes of steam and our faces were feeling pinched with the cold air. We continued our walk, keeping it brisk to keep ourselves warm. Only briefly stopping to take photos.
As we arrived back at the village, the moon had brightened and escaped the cloud cover - we agreed that tonight was going to be a cold and frosty one. We'd had a good 4 mile walk and despite the bracing air, we felt rather euphoric (and ready for a mug of tea!)
The walk sounds lovely, just my sort of thing, and I love the pink moon emerging from the clouds :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Eunice, it was a lovely walk, all the more so since the lockdown has tightened.Delete
A lovely walk. The light at that time of day is beautiful. XReplyDelete
Thank you Jules, the light was magical 😊Delete
Beautiful moon - and sunset - and snowy hills - (and Moss and her bandanna). xReplyDelete
Thank you xDelete
Your photos are wonderful and what a great walk.ReplyDelete
Thank you Jean :)Delete
Thanks for sharing your cold frosty walk. The pink moon picture is lovely. Love the silhouetted ram best - the cloud formation with its pink/orange colours behind him just sets him off perfectly. 💓 xxReplyDelete
We were very taken by the silhouette too 😊❤️Delete
Lovely photos, it must have been one special walk. Gives me a sense of peace and calm to read about it and look at the photos.ReplyDelete
Thank you Ella :)Delete
Again your words paint a picture. Thank you xReplyDelete
Thank you Jill xDelete
Love your moon photos. I can't see to take decent ones. Your walk (with Moss in the distance) was a bonus too!ReplyDelete
Thank you - I have only shared the good ones! I do have - or rather I do delete - many fuzzy photos of the moon 😁Delete
What a brilliant narrative, love the sheep. CN xReplyDelete
Thank you xDelete
What a wonderful evening walk and some fabulous shots of the moon and what I would call ‘the gloaming’ 😃ReplyDelete
Lovely Kate in words and photos. I actually like the dark silhouette of the sheep or maybe he's a Tup? The moon is definitely a pretty colour. Thanks for keeping us on our toes,take care, stay safe & huggles.ReplyDelete
Such wonderful photos xReplyDelete
