Peace and solitude

By Nettles  
Not around yesterday as my Mum died in the morning. I will have to click and run some of the time, but will do my best.

On Wednesday I had a lovely day with Dolly doglette in the Dalby forest again. We walked for about 3 hours, and this time, unlike Sunday when the masses were there, we only briefly saw 2 people - what bliss. The sun was beating down, the sky mostly blue, the birds were singing and it was oh so peaceful. Needless to say the camera was doing overtime and I took far too many shots, most of which will hit the cutting room floor no doubt.
The lake had lots of geese and ducks on, so I was forced to feed them the loaf I had just bought, that was needed at home!
You can see a few trees that are turning, but the forest is mainly pine. I will definately go back if there is any snow this winter, snow laden pine trees, wonderful.
For details about the forest please see my previous Dalby uploads.
Thanks for stopping by and your continued support, it is much appreciated.

Sorry to hear of your loss.

This is a beautiful tranquil scene. I also live near a forest and walk dogs so can appreciate your feelings for this place. You can walk for miles and barely see a soul. Unfortunately I have a terrible sense of direction so occasionally walk more miles than I intended.
