After days and weeks of weather that has cloaked the countryside in shades of grey, the arrival of sun and blue sky has been startling. Suddenly the beauty has returned to the landscape.
It also brings us out of hibernation mode. And it’s not just me. Yesterday we walked part-way round Willen Lake – a complete circuit was still impossible due to persistent flooding of the paths – but the paths were busier than I have seen them for a long time. The public had emerged.
The previous weekend we had also visited the same lake – walking then was even more restricted, but there were images to find of the reeds. The second image is the reflection of the first, reversed because I felt that accentuated the abstract feel of it.
