Forest detail

Fork in the Footpath

I had a choice to make on my walk as there was a fork in the footpath. I thought I was familiar with both options but discovered otherwise after turning left.

I was heading back by this time. Having taken in some of the details and views of and from the forest I decided to extend my walk and in doing so Continue reading

Beauty and the Beast

Thistle and bee

It could be said that the image above, taken on my return from the salt marsh to the park on this my sixth and final walk from the past, depicts a beauty and a beast. However, while the beauty the post title refers to could be said to be the thistle or any of the natural environment of this walk, the reference to the beast Continue reading

My Walk this Week, Past Walks 6 – Salt Marshes

Marsh path 2010

My walk this week is the last of six walks from the past (2010 in this instance) and takes another look back at a place I love to walk, namely our local salt marsh on the River Loughor estuary. I posted a couple of weeks ago about this marsh in 2011 but the experience and images were quite different to those I am posting about the place just one year before. Continue reading

Woodland Comfort – Fallen Tree Bedroom

My walk this week goes back to May 2010 which is before the time that this screen of hanging tendrils from a fallen tree formed a curtain for the space beneath. It was being used as a shelter/bivouac/bedroom by a person I never saw. There was only the evidence of him being there Continue reading

My walk this week focuses on images I took in May 2010 before I had my Canon DSLR cameras. Continue reading

My Walk this Week – A Carmarthenshire Lake

I decided to give this walk the title of “A Carmarthenshire Lake” because apart from giving its rough location, I thought it would be easier for people to pronounce than the name of the lake and park itself – Llyn Llech Owain. No problem of course for those of us in Wales and it may be that the Welsh lingo is an attraction for outside visitors to the country, but that wouldn’t make the words any easier to pronounce.Continue reading

Trains, Planes, Automobiles and Walking

My walk this week started in a local park, crossed frozen marshes, went under and over two railway bridges, crossed a motorway, fields and returned to the park. I saw automobiles on the motorway but no trains and only distant planes. However, I did record the somehow relaxing sound of a light aircraft and the sound of my footsteps on rock hard frozen, frosty fields – the soundscape will be posted tomorrow in my review of the walk.
