Woodthorpe Grange Park in the Fog

There was an unusual amount of fog last week that stayed around for several days. On Saturday I decided to head out for a walk and take some photos of the park in the fog. It was very quiet and while not quite as photogenic as when in the snow, still made for some atmospheric photos.

Autumn at Woodthorpe Grange Park

Just over a week ago I took a walk around Woodthorpe Grange Park as I wanted to photograph the changing of the leaves. A surprising number were still green but there were also some beautuifl reds and golds on display.

Colwick Country Park, Nottingham

2020 has been a write off in a lot of ways, particularly for travelling, so on the weekend I should have been attending my third Open House London I headed out with my Dad to Colwick Country Park for some walking amongst nature which a lot of people have been appreciating more and more this year.

Clumber Park at Christmas

Continuing the Christmas theme, we recently visited Clumber Park, a country park run by the National Trust and went for a walk around the lake. We’ve been there before (post here) but never done the full walk. It was freezing but a nice bracing walk that took us just over an hour and a half. There is a bit of an Alice in Clumberland Theme going on at the moment which was quite fun – especially in the café where we stopped for a very nice lunch – and we also managed to see and photograph a lot of robins.
