Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

Walking pixels: 17 April

I have a big back log of walking pixel photos waiting to be downloaded from my phone – most of them full  of sunny mornings and blue skies.  Sadly this morning was not one of those mornings! At a quarter to eight the rain was torrential and a morning walk was looking a very unpleasant…
