We have all had time to appreciate nature’s beauty this year.  What a blessing!

up close to a silver birch.


In a reflective mood.                                         Waiting for the sun to set

  And then it set.

Another beautiful sunset.  Stunning

The sky and hills over Bolsover

Nature at it’s best
