Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

Still distracted

14th June 2010

Last Saturday should have seen me go further afield, but another matter meant that I stayed at home. However, I didn’t waste the wonderful weather that came to us entirely because I got out my bike and travelled along some of the local lanes; it’s not the first time that the handy machine afforded a quick escape for a few hours and I suspect that it mightn’t be the last either.

Places like Prestbury, Wilmslow, Adlington, Pott Shrigley and Bollington were encountered on the way as I took in some new lanes too. Prestbury’s parish church invited another photo while newly-weds were being photographed on their special day elsewhere in the churchyard; I didn’t disturb them and silently wished them all the best.

Rhododendron bushes were in bloom and that’s why I went around by Pott Shrigley. Well, there’s a certain view of Pott Shrigley that I have had in mind for a photo of the picturesque village, so I hope to get there one morning before their time expires; my evening arrival had the sun in the wrong place while it was being engulfed by cloud; meaning that another trip is warranted. Well, having another excuse to get out in the open air never can be faulted.
