Bluest of blue skies
with the sun throwing shadows on the rocks and undergrowth
giving even the bleakest landscape a beauty all of its own !
We were back on the canal bank, just north of Lac de Guerledan , for a walk this time as we thought that the bitterly cold wind , the penalty for all the sunshine, would not be very kind to cyclists !! What we hadn't realised was the section of canal we were walking on was in a valley and very sheltered , an added bonus which meant that I was able to take some amazing photos !
If you look closely at the last photo, and can see a white 'line' , that is actually the vapour trail of an aircraft jetting off to who knows where !
I don't think I have ever seen a body of water as calm as this, not a breath of wind at all and the reflections were amazing !This is just a small selection (!!) , but Blogger is not playing nicely today and will only let me upload one image at a time, and as I don't want to miss today's sunshine..........I'm off (!!), but before I go, I must tell you about our one last surprise - a kingfisher flashing across the water in a burst of glorious colour, too fast for the camera though but so beautiful !!!
