18+miles from home to work over the gritstone trail..absolutely magnificient
and for good measure, reunited a weak new born lamb with its mum. it somehow got itself on the wrong side of a cattle grid and had been there a while i think. ewe and lamb both doing well again.

Hi Ultra Collie,
God, it is so beautiful where you live! I love those pictures...very peaceful looking along the countryside. I am glad that you were be able to reunite the baby lamb with it's mum...both were very grateful, I am sure:)

I hope that you have an excellent weekend!


Dave - great shots! I must get out of my pit and get up into the Welsh hills early - so inspiring! By the way it's a pity the little lamb will end up on a slightly smaller gauged grill - the BBQ!

Nice one CD! I was up in the Ochils at 7am for a quick jog up Ben Cleuch is similar conditions - being above the clouds early in the morning when everything is quiet is a joy. Shame the Cateran Trail race clashed with the FA Cup - Charlie would have enjoyed it.

Do you have some kind of god-like power over the weather to get such great vista's in all your pictures?
