Summer 2015 wasn’t one of the hottest I can remember. The cold weather seemed to linger on and on, like an unwelcome guest at the end of a party. Fortunately, we had a few good days, and took advantage of them as often as possible. Little did I know that a walk near Chapel-en-le-Frith in the Peak District would be one of our last of the summer. Call it my Last of the Summer Whine.
Whilst on our family walk through the fields and meadows, we encountered a grassy hill with a single tree at its top. We decided to break for a lunch of sandwiches, fruit and crisps, and admired the view. There’s something simply pleasurable about sandwiches eaten whilst lying on the grass. I was inspired to take photographs of my worm’s-eye view.
My spirits were lifted by the sight of hills and fluffy white clouds. Sorry, Cheshire. I’ve got to have a few hills on my country walks.
