Blue Skies

High pressure over the UK has meant that we’ve enjoyed clear blue skies over the past few days. I say ‘enjoy’ even though the same conditions have kept the temperature low, but at least it has been still, so no wind chill factor.

I should have made the most of it and been out there with my camera, like Yorkshire Pudding who has taken more great photos of the Pennines in winter.

But I haven’t, other than an hour at my usual spot when I want to clear the cobwebs, namely Etherow Country Park which is close to where I live.

That’s where I took the photo above. I seem to have this thing about naked trees and no doubt a psychiatrist would have a field day with this admission.

    He didn’t say barren trees. He said naked trees. There’s a huge difference.

    My analysis is that you view each tree like a nubile young woman. This all goes back to an attractive female teacher who embarrassed you when you were a child in primary school. Miss Fifi? Leaf cover is like the clothes she wore to hide her nakedness….. By the way, a great photo.

    Miss Fifi had great limbs.

    … but her bark was a bit rough.

    A bit wooden in her movements; rooted to thespot, I hear. And she expected a new ring every year.

    How to respond to Elizabeth? I’m stumped.

    Oh, Bob, you dear old sap, I’ve just twigged that our friendship is budding and may blossom into something beautiful. We must arrange a branch meeting…but first, I must take my leaf. I’ll give you a trunk call.
