These people on top of the Life Sciences building of the University of Wales Swansea will have a great view over Swansea Bay, even if just below them is a sea of cars in Singleton Hospital car park.
The heat and dazzling brightness of the sun kept me in the shade of the woods on my walk along the cycle/foot path of Swansea Bay. This section of the path from Swansea to Mumbles allowed me to look out from the comfortable temperatures under the trees. The blurred focus in the distance of these photos is not just the result of my use of the camera – it was also pretty hazy with the heat.
Some of the colour I found my walk along Swansea Bay’s cycle/foot path recently was a little confusing. Autumn colours in Summer? I discovered this young oak sapling on my walk through a wooded section of the path and although the year is passing quickly, I am pretty sure we are not in Autumn yet.
I guess it is just the colour that this particular variety of oak tree shows at this stage of its life/year. However, not long ago (in Spring) we found our amelanchier putting out a number of red autumn coloured leaves and wondered if the plant life of the planet is as confused as we are by the changing climate.
I don’t know what the red plant is in the second photo but its colour sure stood out against the green background!
This classic perspective view of a lane with trees arching over it will always be winner for me. Just what is it that makes it such an attractive scene?
I love the twist in the track in the second shot – it’s just one step off being a double helix! It took me several attempts to get the angle just right.
My walk along the Borgue road in Galloway, SW Scotland, was about an 8 mile round trip. This rusty bench was at the side of the road at my turning point, just above Kirkandrews. Old but not out of use, it was a welcome resting place for a few minutes.
Maybe next time round I make do a StillWalks production day of it and capture the sounds as well as the sights.
