A wintry wonderland...

I took this photograph earlier today, whilst out for a walk in the Lancashire countryside with Mrs RToK and our canine companion.

Whether the shot actually conveys the true beauty of the scene, I'll leave up to you; but the dusting of hoar frost on the branches of the trees and bushes at either side of the path was truly a sight to behold.

And for those of you wondering exactly where I came across this scene, it was on the footpath leading down into Marles Wood at Dinckley in the Ribble Valley. For regular or semi-regular visitors, this location is about half a mile away from the one I refer to in this post from April 2010.

Lovely. As usual you capture something quintessential of our wonderful country.

Thank you for your kind words. I consider myself very lucky indeed to live cheek by jowl with such beauty.

And all for free, too.
