Standing Stones..

Those who know me know of my fascination for Standing Stones

I was fascinated to see a group of stones at Brockholes Nature Reserve

Stone Circle

 These have been deliberately placed to add interest to the nature reserve but are still very atmospheric.

"...Stone circles appear all over Britain and Europe- some in slightly better repair than others
some differing slightly in orientation or form, all of purpose and origin unknown..."

Autumn Walking...

Today was beautiful crisp day so I headed for Brockholes Nature Reserve for some late Autumn colour

I found the golden glow of Beech and Birch and the bright red promise of Holly Berries

Autumn Colour

And along the path I met  Mole, Toad and Ratty

I also saw 





Coal Tits

Blue Tits


 I was't fast enough to capture them but I did get a view of  a couple of swans hiding in the reeds

In the shot...

I rather like seeing the shapes that trees make when they fall over !

Here the bluebells and wild garlic creep around and make the shapes their own place..


An Enchanted Place....

A recent visit to Fairy Glen was an explosion of the senses

 Spring is the best time to visit this enchanted place

Ancient Woodland

Bluebell Wood

Follow the path

Wherever you look in Fairy Glen there's a picture waiting to be taken.

This is just a selection of photographs which I hope capture a moment in time.

Cockles and Clams.....

It's fascinating to watch the cockles and clams shimmer and dance 

in their pools of crystal clear water

The beach structures of ...New Brighton

New Brighton is a seaside resort located at the northeastern tip of  

the Wirral Peninsular in Merseyside.

A way through...

A perfect day for looking at Beach Structures....

There's a famous seaside place called ...Blackpool

"There’s a famous seaside place called Blackpool,
That’s noted for fresh air and fun...."

The Beautiful Blues in Blackpool

On a recent day visit to Blackpool there were lots of interesting things to photograph and this amazing blue sky made everything look quite special.

Putting them all together....

 A nice way of keeping the pictures together is to make a collage 

Snow in the park..

We have had rather thick snowfall over night so it gave the opportunity of a snowy walk in Mesnes Park this morning.

Just in the right place at the right time to see this small gaggle of geese fly over the fountain.

Through the trees to the Pavilion

Rather chilly for sitting today

January brings the snow

makes our feet and fingers glow....
