My walk this week took me to the lower slopes of Cefn Drum where evidence of all the rain we have had recently was clearly to be seen with muddy ruts filled with flowing water.
Starting with a familiar gate and cattle grid, I followed some disgruntled sheep up the track and under the pylons to negotiate a route around deep wet ruts and puddles reflecting the cloud patterns of a clearing sky.
I enjoyed the details of this walk, both sights and sounds, but got my trousers soaked by scrambling through the overgrown bracken around the top of a rough track down to the valley floor. However, the value of light weight material is that it dries quickly!
The climate atmospherics of this walk meant that distant traffic formed an intermittent audio backdrop according to the lie of the land but cheering birdsong came through regardless. Once again I was relying on my phone for both photography and sound recording.
