Walks With My Dog - Leeds - Liverpool Canal, 15 Jan 2022

 


Despite the cold and mud I have enjoyed my morning dog walks this month and have taken quite a few photos. I love the diffused winter light, and this January we have had some dramatic weather conditions making for some exciting photography opportunities. Here are a few shots from a beautiful misty morning on the canal.

Walks With My Dog: Gotts Park, 18/01/22

 


It was a glorious morning of frosty sunrise painting the landscape in the incredible, ethereal kind of beauty no summer sunrise can compete with. It was cold, yes, but the magic was so breathtaking that you didn't notice the cold.

Still Life: January

 


"January is my favorite month,when the light is plainest, least colored.
And I like the feeling of beginnings."

iMovie: A Winter Walk Around Bingley, West Yorkshire

 

At this time of the year when the countryside is usually a bit too muddy for pure enjoyment I like to visit pretty villages or small towns and have a good explore and stroll around them. I regularly pass through the town of Bingley on my travels to Haworth, and  this quiet New Year Bank Holiday seemed a perfect time to actually stop there and have a gentle tour.
Bingley is a great place for walkers and nature lovers. It lies both on the River Aire and Leeds-Liverpool canal. Right in the centre there is the entrance to the huge and very beautiful Myrtle Park, but the best thing for me is St Ives Estate, a 550 acres Country Park full of features and surprises which I will no doubt be returning to later on in the year.
