A few weeks ago we took a drive out to Thruscross Reservoir. A very cold day but nice to get out and about.
My waterproof coat. A must have for a walk like this in November!
The start of the walk, just as you get into the woodland it becomes quite dark by the trees towering over you.
A clearing in the woods, overlooking the reservoir.
We stumbled across some Fly Agaric, which is a very poisenous fungi. If eaten, causes severe gastro-intestinal disturbance, delirium, hallucinations, convulsions, then coma-like sleep.
So don’t be tempted to lick it like I was!
Also came across this, Panther Cap. Again. Do not eat, can be fatal!
Some more spooky looking trees and branches.
Another clearining, with some beautiful autumnal colours on the trees.
Into the dark woods we go. It really is this dark even at mid-day!
When you come out of the woods you hit moorland, where you have to trek across to get back to the car park.
Probably my favourite shot of the day. The water was so calm.
And finally, just before we got back to the car park a shot of the resovoir wall.
It was a great day out,brilliant for photography.
Thanks for looking
