  • England in Autumn.....

    Had my annual 2nd major walk of the year yesterday...19 miles !! Peterborough to Stamford...enjoyed great weather after all the flooding and downpours of this week...here are a few shots of the walk..

    The first five miles is alongside the Nene Valley railway, lots of photograhers (Nikon, Canon !!) around as it happened to be a diesel weekend !! I remember the class 37 when travelling from Ipswich to Liverpool Street in the 60's and 70's This one is the 1st one produced so I am told...


    There were lots of signs of Autumn ....lots of Teasel heads, only just noticed the insect of this one...


    The walk ended at Stamford and consisted of a very pretty area of England...through some large fields with wide open skies..and past the beautiful Burleigh House where the annual horse trials are held..




    The lovely town of Stamford for pub meal and catching the train back to Peterborough...


    Apologise for the ramblings..oops sorry a bit of a pun there..anyway hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed the day..

    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    A nice series and commentary....would have liked to have seen more views from such a long walk...No 3 of these is my favourite (needs the horizon to be corrected though).
    Very surprised there were no other comments....how rude.

      Re: England in Autumn.....

      What a long walk - are you in training for some reason ?

      How enjoyable rambling over the fields and byways - did you use an OS map ?

      I LURVE the Dof on the Teasels and the train is terrific shot too

      I did not post earlier, as I had not seen this in New Posts ... and I have been "on 'ere" 3 or 4 times a day this week - but definately NOT rude Brian

        If I'm suggesting anyone was rude I have to include myself....I had missed this too....there are so many views and so few comments on some threads....I guess thats down to the rich abundance of posts we enjoy here.

            Thanks guys for all the comments, i don't get too offended these days if I don't get any comments, I enjoy looking at the superb pics on this site (and there are many talents on here), as well as posting occasionally myself.

            Actually I just enjoy walking...and the fact that I can take a camera with me just adds to the enjoyment...19 miles sounds a long way, but once you start walking (around 2 > 2.5m per hr) you can cover quite a distance, in a couple of hours.

            I did see two lovely Red Kites very close up.. not far from Peterborough...but only had my 14-54 lens attached, so by the time I could change lenses they disappeared.

            Will post a couple more shots later on. thanks for all the comments....
