I am just in from our second wander. The rain stopped at noon, the wind velocity reduced by twenty percent and the sun popped out for a minute. Lovely it was, it’s raining again now but it will just be a light shower. This was taken on our first outing in torrential rain at around eight this morning. This is Haylands Bridge over the river Ure and is taken from the same spot that I took the dawn snap a couple of days ago. This is not HDR the haloing on the bridge parapet is rain bounce. We were soaking, wringing wet, it is cold and I got Trench Finger.
There! I knew the rain couldn’t last it’s just stopped.
The sheep are watching the tourists………they are marooned. I called at the farm to let them know. The dialect up these parts is a bit strong but I came away with the impression that he knew. He also said something to the effect that they were silly little darlings. He mentioned they could do with a hand…..there were three of them plus a big tractor so I explained that I was allergic to wet sheep. I did as he suggested and buggered off and quick. Maybe I was a tad hasty lanolin must be good for Trench Finger.
On we plodded into town……..I wanted to see the Beck but also wanted another Pork Pie. Brilliant are the Pork Pies here. I’ll Take a piccy of one so you can enjoy it as well.
We went through all this a couple of days ago but for dementia sufferers…. Gayle Beck, the Mill, and the Old Bridge taken from the New Bridge. The mist on the building in the background is spray……………It really is giving it Jolly What Ho!
Gayle Beck from the Old Bridge…….This is a stitched image. I thought it would be a manual job but no. It is straight out of PS Elements. It will enlarge but I couldn’t find a seam line anywhere. Brilliant! Thanks Adobe.
Have fun, I hope you are all safe, sound and dry. It’s raining again….just a short shower.
