I’ve taken many a grey and windswept walk recently.. and it seemed today was to be no exception. Sunshine – be it literal or metaphorical – was in short supply.

No fear, when there’s an adventure to be had. I’d seen property details advertised in a part of the local landscape I didn’t know well. Dillon (the dog) and I – plus a picnic and a takeaway coffee made for very acceptable companions.

Fetching the coffee led us past the river close to the house .. which was doing it’s best to align with the day’s ‘Hitchcock-ian’ mood. Any producers scouting for a moody location?

So – with much upon which to reflect – not least these reflections – I set off for parts undiscovered. At least I didn’t need desert boots and a hip flask. Even ‘though it’s a look I’m partial to. Heat being a forgotten concept these days.

On any form of media one could care to watch – world events are – on balance – rather un-balanced. Man’s inhumanity to man having taken new and vicious turns for the worse.

In last weeks shot of a northern beach – even elements of the landscape seem to be fighting for supremacy. My rock’s bigger than your rock…

Impossibly naive ‘though this may seem.. I like to look for sunshine even in the rain. In the beauty of the hedgerows – and a glorious coastal garden .. I found it.

If I look for darkness .. it always turns up too. Funny that.
