Gorgeous Blossom In Whitehaven

Gorgeous Blossom

Whitehaven town centre is looking lovely this morning, with gorgeous blossom glowing brightly outside of St Nicholas Church as the spring sunshine brings about mood enhancing colours to all passers by.

  • St. Nicholas Church was originally built in 1693. It was rebuilt in 1883 as the congregation grew. A fire on 31st August 1971 destroyed the church except the clock tower and main entrance.

There is no glory in star or blossom till looked upon by a loving eye; There is no fragrance in April breezes till breathed with joy as they wander by.

A Lovely Spring Morning

I’ve had a lovely morning walk with Poppy at Ennerdale Water, in West Cumbria. It was breezy, as you’ll see from the video below, but it has been a spectacular spring morning.

It was great to see so many people taking advantage of the weather. I lost count at how many were walking along the lakeside path. Some brave souls even dipped their toes in the freezing cold water!

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

Week In Focus #22

This is picture #22 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. The idea behind the challenge is to get myself outside into the Cumbrian countryside, at least once a week.

  • This weeks photo is of the local cycle path/bridleway that I walk along every single day. When the sky is blue, and temperatures are beginning to climb, it’s a real pleasure to be out walking 😊

Remember: Always walk in the light. And if you feel like you’re not walking in it, go find it. Love the light.

Week In Focus #11

This is picture #11 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. Today’s photo is of one of raindrop on a tree branch, captured while walking in a forest on the side of a local mountain.

  • This photo was taken on with my DSLR and edited in Topaz Restyle.

Raindrop

This leaf, so complete in itself,
Is only part of the tree.

And this tree, so complete in itself,
Is only part of the forest.

And the forest runs down from the hill to the sea,
And the sea, so complete in itself,

Rests like a raindrop
In the hand of God.
