Curious Fungi......

 Not really curious fungi, just common place fungi I see every Autumn in our field..  I was looking for a few perfectly formed specimens but very quickly became distracted and fascinated by a few that had gone over or been pecked..........

An afternoon ride down Hexham mid-afternoon today, dodging rain showers on the way.  A few chores and a little shopping, the sky cleared to a breezy, bright evening.  From Juniper to Slaley the clouds were gathering over Hexhamshire behind me....

Derwent Reservoir, mystical moment.....

 A lovely, if chilly evening ride over to Edmundbyres yesterday.  One of my regular rides around Derwent Reservoir which straddles the border of South Northumberland and Durham. The light when I reached the northern shore of the reservoir was really quite special...

A lovely afternoon for a ride into the Tyne Valley and Hexhamshire,  Along the Yarridge, the view over Lowgate and to the North was wonderful. Up into Hexhamshire, the Angel of the Shire was also looking good in the late afternoon sun...

The distinctive line of conifers on Healey Hill near Minsteracres, visible from several miles away on the South shore of Derwent Reservoir yesterday evening.



Storm Clouds.......

Buckshot Syke near Blanchland was bathed in sunshine this evening as a storm cloud approached Blanchland.

The effort of cycling does have it's plus points.........
