Sunday Picture Post: By Wood and Water

At last the storms have gone away. We hop on a bus to Hopton. We’re going to Lound Lakes. This is the first part of the walk. You’ll need to dress warm but it’s not too wet.

Here we join the footpath… it’s not far along the quiet country lane

Passing the paddocks, see the lie of the land

Just into the woods a small stream runs. Or so it seems. In fact this the tail end of Lound Lake which, despite being in Suffolk, is one of the Norfolk Broads (i.e. flooded medieval peat diggings). I’ve a feeling this end was once a duck decoy. A footbridge sees us safely over the water

Draining water from the short end to the long end…

This is a managed woodland… which means trees are chopped down and new ones are planted, and first one area then another is opened up to the sun. This is good wildlife management

Man and Nature here march in harmony

Pines aren’t native to our land, they always strike me as having alien beauty

We’re not able to get close to the main lake… maintenance work has closed off a walkway (should have checked ahead of visit!) Yet I manage this distant shot

Another “swamp”; this one seems disconnected to the whole.

23rd February 2022

A tree-lined track leads us back to the road. A short hop & skip and we’re back into the reserve. But that’s for next week

I leave you with this… the beauty of a bright day in February

Hope you enjoyed. More next week

  1. Good collection and the next to the last one is my favorite. Catching them before the leaves return gives a different perspective. Well done, Crispina!

    What a wonderful selection, Crispina. There are so many names for bodies of water. You keep teaching me, whilst I enjoy your beautiful images.
