Hiking

Late afternoon sunshine on Skiddaw, Cumbria

Late afternoon sunshine on Latrigg, Cumbria

Late afternoon “Golden Hour” hike for exercise after the frustrations of work setting up my project here, with only time for a quick raid up Latrigg, a walk out from Keswick. Latrigg is a minor peak compared to Skiddaw (931 m.) immediately behind which dwarfs it, but the views from Latrigg are always rewarding. The sun set behind Grisedale Pike (791 m.) and its shadow climbed up the fells behind me as I hiked home.

Hammersmith Bridge - south side

Hammermsith Reach viewed across the Thames

Sporty circular walk out to Barnes Bridge and round  the Thames path on the Surrey bank, passing around Hammersmith Bridge (which is closed, even to pedestrians or river traffic) and back home via Putney Bridge. I did this today as a training walk, so a couple of litres of water as weight in my rucksac, walking fast and with as few stops as possible.

Morning mist on the River Thames for my exercise walk between Barnes and Putney shortly after sun rise. The water is unusually still at high water with the lack of boat traffic in the lockdown.

The skies, shapes and notoriously sticky South Downs mud from my hike to and around Castle Hill Nature Reserve in the South Downs National Park in Sussex. A day hike out from my support bubble mate’s home. I’ve been thinking of doing a set about Mud for a while and this day out provided an opportunity.

Seeing things in better perspective: hiking away from the City of London on the Thames Path downstream from Woolwich Arsenal. Nothing is forever: sic transit gloria is also an aphorism of hope.
