Sunday Picture Post: After the Storm

Last weekend (26th & 27th September) was rain and winds and more rain and yet stronger winds. By Monday (28th September) the wind had blown itself out taking the rain clouds with it. Time for a walk. Marriotts Way, out of Norwich, ought to be dry-ish underfoot. I made an early start…

The Wensum usually runs clear and clean. Not this day.

And I thought this was the worst of the damage…

I was hoping for autumn colour. This was it…

… until I took a slight detour and found this…

Morning exercise: to climb over this willow… oh, and another… that was blocking my path

These willows usually stand 3′ from the river…

The tiny Tud had burst its banks. The Tud feeds into the Wensum, the Wensum feeds into the Yare and the Yare flows dangerously close to my door.

By mid-morning, a misty-rain was veiling the land.

I didn’t mind the mizzle; look what it did to this

And here I found colour…

I found fungi too, and I took a second, shorter walk before going home. But those photos must wait for the Tuesday Treat.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this brief view of a rain-sogged Marriotts Way

  4. Yea. Always a surprise or two. And if it’s a gift of nature, then it’s a treasure


  5. Willows are relatively rare here – I think almost all of them are cultivated – but they have a special feeling for me. Downed willows make me feel really bad, possibly because it reminds me of the willow my great-grandmother (never met her) planted. It got killed in a tornado.
