The way the light is layered, reflected, captured, bounced around, as the sun gets lower in the sky
The early morning mists and dews
The pleasure that the ever present dogs take in their surroundings
Boating activity on Windermere - we always take a trip down the lake
A gradaully fading away willow tree that may well be the last Ent in England
And this year, the wonder of the "supermoon" close
The curious carvings, which look as though they should be ancient, but are actually try outs on slate at the local slate workers at Skelwith Brisge
Driving through Kirkstone Pass, morning and evening
on the way to a fascinating walk up the valley of Martindale,
past the C16th farmhouse
and on, guided by John White, to watch the wild deer there. If you closely at the pics on his FB post, you'll see a couple of curious folk peering over the wall - we had the privilege of being the only people John took out that day. It was truly magical.
There are some more pics here if you'd like to see them
I particularly like the St Francis window with its rich and delicate colouring
Hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse of what draws us back, year after year.
