Walking Squares: Stray Autumn Colour

Becky has announced November will be a squares challenge month with the topic of walking, to encourage us all to get out in the fresh air. It’s wonderful to see her back.

I’m joining in with two pictures taken along a path that leads up to Darwen moor.

I may share some pictures from the top of the moor during the month, but for now, linger with me as I pause midway up to catch my breath and look for splashes of autumn colour to reward my climb.

        1. Just looking at the picture again, the road seems to be going up not down, which is no doubt why Brian is teasing me. I don’t know how I managed that.

  1. Oooh, nice! I love the near and far in the first one, but it’s the sizzle in the foreground that commands, I think. You sure packed a whole autumn palette in that second square — that must have been fun!

    1. Such a pretty plant, given it’s a weed. Thinking about mankind’s ways, it’s surprising we haven’t come up with a good use for some of our best spreading weeds – that way they’d soon be under threat.

    1. I know you’re teasing me, Brian, but I live on the other side of the valley, so it is, at some stage, no matter where you’re going. You don’t get far keeping on the flat, that’s for sure.

    1. The path was altered so vehicles could get up to repoint the tower and is now quite treacherous in places, especially in the snow. It used to be a well-trodden way but now it’s loose gravel. I suppose our combined feet will soon set it to rights.
