Fishink walk in the Forest of Bowland.

June 7, 2012

I went for a Beautiful walk last week. Making the most of the warmer weather I headed off to the glorious Forest of Bowland. It was a day of wondrous trees and the colour green, everywhere you looked.

I’m never quite sure who’s watching whom, on these walks but everyone seemed happy enough, going about their business of clucking, tweeting and grass munching.

The colours were amazing.

The trees kept popping out of the landscape saying “look at me” ,”hey, photograph me”, “look at me over here”  So I thought it rather rude to leave them without taking a snapshot. 🙂

We detoured the walk past Stonyhurst College, where author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, actor Charles Laughton and Eduardo López de Romaña, a President of Peru had all been pupils. Apparently Tolkein was a frequent visitor to the college too, writing part of his Lord of the Rings in the area.

Slightly further on the ground turns into moorland and more open country. I took this there.

The views from higher up are really something.

But I think the best memory of the day were the colours. What a wow !
