Bolton’s Bench and Burley

Two really lovely locations with nice weather, what’s not to like?

My son and I (mummy was laid low with a bug) headed off to cause as much damage to the English countryside as possible (OK that was his intention, I was along for the ride). We wandered up Bolton’s bench and the heathland behind it.

While there we ended up making friends with just about every “buppy” (dog) that came past and my son began to orbit various piles of logs at a speed faster than I could attain… 😀

On the way home we stopped at Picket Post to catch an amazing sunset. While there a photogenic pony with a mane like a 80s popstar’s hair turned up.

Then, on the way through Burley we came across a field full of deer. I was gutted that the longest lens I had at this point was a 18-55mm zoom, but a bit of cropping got me a little closer.
