Hello again, Dale from Diary of an Internet Nobody here.
I have had many comments in the past from Lanthie about the pictures I’ve posted of our local countryside in Devon, so I thought I’d preview the latest in my series of Picture this… photo-blogs, featuring some shots taken on a recent autumn stroll.
Because I’m on holiday from work and we have Roo (a sweet-natured collie bitch we are looking after for a few weeks) to take for walks, I’ve had the chance to get out toward dusk when I’m usually working, and get some photos of the countryside in the distinctive light we only get on these early autumn evenings.
Oh, and I might have slipped in the odd one or two of The Bridge (a favourite photographic subject of mine that my readers will have seen before)
The river Taw was at high tide when I was wandering the banks yesterday, as the sun began its descent to the horizon.
Roo and I walked down the river bank in the park, heading for the old iron bridge.
The storm drains were running fast from the recent rain..
..and the tidal river had risen almost to its limit.
Steps up from the riverside take you to a junction, with a shady tunnel of trees in one direction..
…and in the other, the old railway bridge, now carrying only pedestrians and cyclists.
