Mark and Jasper having a little snuggle, before he and I braved the Great Outdoors.
The view through the rain-soaked window of Linda's conservatory.
Mark in the wood by the stream near Venford Reservoir, where we went in the afternoon. Linda lent me some waterproof trousers and a hat, both of which I was very thankful for as it was still raining steadily and I know my jeans would have soaked up the rain very quickly. Climbed down the steep bank in increments until we got to stream level, which was very pretty with mossy trees and rocks, and made our way along to the waterfall. Everything very wet and dripping but it was atmospheric.
The waterfall. I couldn't decide which photo I preferred so have put both in. Both Mark and I took some long exposure shots to get the 'milky water' effect, which I will probably process in monochrome when I get home.
A bone, one of several, probably a sheep.
There were lots of tufty lichen growths on the trees.
I was surprised to see lots of Gorse flowering, thought it was quite early.
