#365daysofbiking Mist opportunity:
November 17th – A spin up to Chasewater after some mechanical jobs on the bike didn’t quite reward me the way I’d hoped: There was a mist settling and I was hoping for either an inversion or a gorgeous sunset – but neither occurred, just a hazy, soft dying of the light.
Even a ride up the former pit mound to take in the view was uninspiring, sadly.
I made my return through CHasetown, and as always, the high street is brilliant at night. Even when there are few people around, it looks busy. I’ll never work that out.
Nice to see also that at Chasewater, the water levels are slowly recovering.
October 23rd – Darlaston on a sunny day. Heart of the north Black Country, architecture, memory, history and nature.
How could you not adore this place?
It feels like my second home.
As I gradually reboot from feeling lost, places like this help me feel it’s worth the while again.
#365daysofbiking Some velvet morning:
October 10th – Seasons and situations have a habit of redeeming themselves. This chilly, but sunlit and misty dawn in Mill Green, on the the way to the station, I fell in love with autumn all over again.
Ever year I’m furious with it for stealing my summer, then it goes and does something beautiful to win me over.
I’m so glad I was around to see this.
#365daysofbiking I dream in colour:
October 9th – In Telford for the morning, I had business up on Stafford Park and the hedgerows and trees along the cycleway were absolutely gorgeous.
The blue sky merged with the reds, golds, yellows and the still green and made a beautiful multicolour palette as I cycled past on a lovely warm, sunny autumn morning,
Autumn’s pretty fine once you stop struggling and accept it.
#365daysofbiking Bugging me:
September 26th – The unexpectedly fine, warm weather has been bringing out some great examples of bugs looking for a last yahoo or somewhere to hibernate until spring.
On my way to work, this lovely shield bug decided to drop in and say hi.
What a great little creature it is!
