The puddle below tells the story of the weather and the long horned cows underneath the M4 motorway bridge know that story as well as the farmer and I do. Having constructed a coral for his cattle the farmer has given some convenient shelter to these mothers with their calves and allowed me to walk without fear of being pronged by one of those sharp looking objects.
The railway bridge which also crosses this footpath is made of older material than concrete and the various colours of the stone used create a fascinating pattern within pattern in the construction of the bridge. You will have to watch the video at the end of the week to see more.
Under that bridge doesn’t look like the most restful place for those poor cows.
I love the patterns on the last photo. Seeing colours in stone like this always make me wish I’d pay more attention in my science class when I was still at school.
Perhaps they have the ability to filter some of it out as I do when walking over the marshes.
