I had some time today to just get out and chill (easy with the wind chill at around -7 in the Goyt), so I took off with the Camera. It was late afternoon and there was not a lot of light but it was still worth it. It cleared my head, which has been full of rubbish for the past few days.
Just after I had taken this one a dog appeared. It was a friendly sort of dog and wanted to play. It dropped a very used and old tennis ball at my feet and then looked at me expectantly. I was tempted to lob the ball into the pond. In the end I took pity on the dog, as the pond is deep and very cold. And its owner appeared and he was bigger and stronger looking than me and I guessed that he would not take kindly to his dog going for a swim.
It was a good way to round off another difficult day. As the sun dipped behind the hill, the red grouse scattered in panic from me and the dog, and I felt a little better, a little bit more sorted.
