The wet weather has been getting everyone down so after a nice family day out. I headed away for a cycle while the sun was still in the sky.
Through forest tracks taking in the scenery and admiring the big piles of logs cut from the wind blown tree's of the january storms. One really caught my eye, a huge monster spruce butt! I parked my bike against it for scale. Further on away from the conifers I looked up through the beeches at the sun dappling the leaves wow! what a sight after days and days of rain. Then thistles bursting out with our purple flower of Scotland and finally the mute swan and signets feeding . A good end to a nice sunny day :)
