A Short Walk from Home

November 28, 2016

A cracking morning at sunrise in my home village of Long Preston. On the short half hour walk the light was fantastic and I took some photos with my Samsung phone. The result was quite pleasing so I thought I would share them. The  photos have not been touched/doctored at all, it was just one of those days when the natural light and landscape could not be improved.

Long Preston Beck


Red berries next to the beck


Mist waiting patiently, I have the ball in my pocket …and she knows!


The walk by the Beck


Llamas where there used to be pigs


 Last look at autumn, real winter is here


This walk is barely a mile long but double the distance is a fine walk from Long Preston. Click here for the details

Enjoy your walking
