squelching through fields


Last weekend, Littlest and I took advantage of a free couple of hours to 'squelch and squerch' across fields, along country lanes and along the canal to a nearby village, Berriew.



The rains held off long enough to reach home. It was good to be out... exploring, stretching our legs and eyes. And what a joy to spot the first of the snowdrops on a roadside verge.

the copper beech in january

Soft winter sunlight casting long shadows.
Bare branches with the last leaves holding on.

a new year escape


... to the coastline of Cardigan Bay.
A New Year's Eve walk from Mwnt beach along the clifftops, fields and country lanes. 
The tranquil ancient church of Mwnt with it's whitewashed walls and simple, natural festive window displays.


And to blow the very last of the cobwebs away, a New Year's Day ramble to Penbryn beach.
Mesmerised by the big waves. 

A refreshing start to the new year.
