Return of the Sun on the Sugar Loaf   8 comments

After what seemed like an endless bout of dreary wet weather through October the sun finally came out back in early November so I encouraged the family out for a walk. The Sugar Loaf is a popular local hill but you can park high up for a south-facing walk to make the most of the sun and make for an easy family round. TJS wanted something longer but TJF is not big on walking so this was a suitable compromise.

I posted this walk a couple of times so you can read the words from back in December 2011 and May 2011 and I’ll leave the slide show and the pictures to do the talking for this outing. Safe to say it was a fine day in the sunshine with wonderful autumn colours, cracking views across the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons and a nice scramble on the rocky summit.

    • And it’s raining again now – I keep looking at sunny photos to remember what the sun looks like. We went for a walk on our local common on Sunday and had to abandon it ‘cos it was so wet and muddy!

    • Thanks Bob. The Autumn and Winter colours have been superb – when the sun has come out anyway! We are under a deluge of rain and storms in the UK at the moment unfortunately

  4. I see you’re getting plenty of value from your new camera. Very nice too. However, I think you should check the settings – it’s done something very odd with the sky. What is that colour anyway?
