Way back in my last photo post, ‘The joys of summer‘, canal-lover The Stymaster commented on the surprising greenery of the waterways through West Bromwich. As a belated response, I’ve collated some gorgeous summer greenery from recent rides, often from unexpected places.
The landscape this year has been an ever-changing collage of foliage, flowers, crops and sky; do get out and enjoy it. It’s now harvest time, and a whole new colour palette is emerging.
