Wet walk on Long Mynd - Shropshire

A very wet walk with my dear Ellie (collie-lurcher), unfortunately she's not really my dog, but we love walking together. Walked from Church Stretton car park to Pole Bank on the Long Mynd, and back through Little Stretton. Had my paints out a couple of times but the rain soaked us both completely at least 3 times. Ah well..2 views of The Lawley, and one across the mynd plateau.

Walk through the wheat field

Walk through the wheat field behind my house, North Shropshire, a bit windy, but a good sunset at the end of the night.

Sunsets behind the house

Sunsets behind the house - really difficult to get the effect of the sky with the fading light, the trees in the distance are all in silhouette.

Cycle from Wem to Prees via the lanes

Today 'the heatwave' has started. I left work at 5 and got home at 8pm. It's only 5 miles in a straight route to cycle home, but a winding ride home via Lee Borckhurst, Hodnet, Hawkstone took me 3 hours with a few stops for sketching. I love these long evenings with a bike and my paints...
