Time Away…

I have been away for five days. As much as I love being on board it is nice to have a change now and again!

I have been fortunate enough to visit the beautiful  Clocaenog Forest, again. I have been there before as you will have seen in earlier posts, but I don’t think you could ever tire of the place, it’s so peaceful and tranquil.

PICT0027 No idea what this grass is called, but I have often wondered where cotton wool comes from??

PICT0026This was just one plant on it’s own amongst many other species.

PICT0029Sitting looking at this view the only sound was a Cuckoo in the distance, we watched Buzzards gliding silently in the valley and it was lovely to be immersed in the total peace of it all…

I then had the pleasurable job of feeding this little Lamb twice a day…

PICT0044   Out of all the lovely photos I snapped these two are amongst my favourites, they are real Fairytale-ish!

No apologies for featuring this lovely place on my blog again, Mark and I were there for five days and only saw two other people in the forest, not many places like that over a Bank Holiday are there?…

Beautiful photos and a stunning place.
As nice as it is to go away, it is always lovely to come home.

I like the fairytale-ish photos. Lovely light and shade, and the strong slanting lines of the trees. You must have had decent weather!

Hi Jo, thank you, and yes I agree, coming home again is lovely!

Thank you Halfie, I always love compliments from good photographers like yourself and Jo! I love the light and shade in the forest too, it does give it a magical feel.
