Derwent Edge Walk

A 9 hour stroll with good friend Jane Carter covering 31km. We stopped at Old Horns for lunch. I had Cajun Chicken (quite dry) with side order of Onion Rings (huge plate, very greasy!) Then over to Derwent Edge and dropped back down to Strines by Danes Dyke back to Bradfield and Nags Head for a pint of Stout. On the way I licked a cow’s arse

Photo365 – Day 32 – Dam Flask, Bradfield

I tend to realise I haven’t taken many days off somewhere around mid November, so this year I thought I’d spread them through the year. And my first day off was today to go on a walk with my brother and sister in law.

We parked the car at the wall of the Dam Flask in Lower Bradfield, nr Sheffield and walked around the dam in a clockwise direction. It’s about 3.5miles and more or less all flat. An interesting walk with a variety of wildlife.

We saw all the usual suspects – grey squirrels, blue tits and great tits, a cormorant, a variety of ducks and geese, chaffinches and magpies.

I took this shot from the overflow area of the dam. It’s taken using an Olympus EP2 with the 14-42mm zoom attached. It’s an ideal camera for walking. I didn’t notice the bird in the sky when I took the shot but I think it adds to the balance.

It’s for my photo365 project and I’m now I’m on day 1 of month two. My first month down 11 to go!
