Whilst Mrs BW was getting ready to go to Macclesfield with me, I took off to the Goyt for an hour. The sun was shining and there was a chill wind blowing. The grey, dull weather of recent days had gone. Perfect to get rid of the cobwebs and feeling of sluggishness that I get after a few days off.
The stream in the bottom of the valley meanders along making it look as if some large monster or giant has taken great chunks out of the landscape.
I like the geometry of this photo, the old railway track is gradually being reclaimed, but the whole landscape is littered with the remains of mans influence.
The sheep are back. For a year or so there have been very few sheep here but this morning I noticed that the valley was full of them again.
All too soon I went back to the car and back to collect Mrs BW for a spot of retail therapy and some lunch. Glad I went for the stroll first though.
