Winter day

Firstly, many thanks to Kath nominating me for an award. Very surprising and flattering!

With my apologies if you've already been got, I nominate Fiona and Posh Dee.

The next surprise of the day is that we went out! Yes! Outside. For a walk. It's been a while, I know, and the waist bands on my trousers have been giving me hints for a little while now that perhaps I might like to get up off my behind and actually do something vaguely resembling exercise. So, although there weren't many leaves left on the trees to be brown and the sky most certainly wasn't grey, but we did go for a walk on a winter's day. Just a local walk, about 7 miles, along the Pennine Way for a while and back around Green Withens Reservoir.

Not a cloud in the sky

Ice - not necessarily thick enough to hold your weight...


Pollution

There was a bit of a cracking ice and ending up knee deep in the mud incident but still a good time was had by all and those trainers needed a wash anyway... Who knows, we might venture outside again at somepoint this year.

Brilliant photos, Helen - and the pollution looks almost pretty...but not quite. It's been almost warm in the sunshine out walking.

Aw, shucks, thanks. The picture of the pollution gives pause for thought.

Lovely pictures, and bet you had a nice glow after the walk. It`s so good to get out and about this time of year.

See this is why I nominated you - great pics as always! Kind of makes up for a lazy day at home with no change of scenery (unless you count Asda!!)

Kay said...

Oh, beautiful photos. Must have been lovely out there.

Congrats on the award!
