A walk in the wood...again!


Had a second walk in the wood over the weekend because i did not want to lose the chance to enjoy the serene view of Jesmond Dene in snow. Another great walk in the morning with the birds singing along the white path and i wish that i can freeze the time and immerse myself with the beautiful surrounding. How i wish i could do that...this time walk brought me to the beginning of the stream literally, then i walked down the stream, passed through a few cascading water and bridges along the way...a few wild ducks just swimming happily in the cold icy water and once a while dunked their heads into the water to something for breakfast...





...the small waterfall near the old water mill...

...a few small rapids to tame the stream...

...the sub-zero temperature managed to freeze the water flowing down the cliff...

...aarrggghhhh, another great weekend walk...

Danial,

U can still take a stroll in the park??? I had to think many times to brace the weather today just to do the groceries shopping!

I suppose it was a good trip judging from the beautiful photos taken.

hej! Ms.B...i did twice in a week, walked thru the dene fron end to end...and it was really great to be outdoor after a few days camped myself indoor...yes, even though the temperature was sub-zero, the view was breathtaking...;-)

Subhanallah, veri beautiful indeed.
My walk in the snow generally consists of putih salju sejenak mata memandang, snow yg ditaburi tanah n snow yg dicemari doggie pee.euw!!

I'm in Kyoto and it snowed this morning exactly like in this blog of yours. But the experience was shortlived. After a while the sun came and the snow melted away...
Have a great week ahead, Danial and thank you for sharing those awesome photos..
