Pow Hill Nature Reserve ~ Sept 2017~ part 2

Part 1 HERE

We had to walk back the same way we came, so I decided to put the macro lens on and see what I could find,


but soon changed back to the telephoto, the water was too enticing, and other stuff was going on,

Caught in The ActΒ 

the sheep were off to get a drink

The Great Escape


Red & Ginger


When we got back we trogged up the hill to the newly opened cafe

delicious home made soup for lunch

and a lovely view over Derwent Water

The little cabin is for hire, the people who run the cafe also run a Glamping site which has got great reviews on their facebook page, hot tubs, clear ceilings for star watching etc. Their website is HEREΒ and you can see the different cabins and book a stay if you so desire.

after lunch Sophie and I decided to explore the woodlands behind the cafe

time to revisit the macro lens

Mellow Yellow


Liking the Lichen


Not mushroom left


and admire the views of the heather covered meadows

before making our way back to the car.

Extra lusciousness can be seen in the full album HERE

Stay tooned for our next outing, to Jarrow Hall, the Bede Museum and Medieval Village

  1. Stunning place…love the sheep, and the people. How do you get your shots so crystal clear? Mine are always fuzzy. Mind you I am not good at looking after me camera…and Id need a tripod to keep it steady and I can never be arsed.

    1. The same way you draw stuff, practice,practice,practice, and learning the tools you have to use. One day in this life you and I will go on a photo shoot to Conamarra beach and I’ll show you 😊. ( think it’s conamarra but anyways it’s that gorgeous beach you shot a while back!)

    1. Going on photography trips with Sophie takes me away from ‘normal’ life. I love exploring and chatting on with her about what we’re seeing. Days of joy, and I’m glad to share these days and happy other bloggies enjoy them. Thanks for coming along Dani!
