The warmth of the sun


Lighting the way. Today, the Chase felt like a pagan place.

Today, I made a decision – it’s been a hard couple of weeks at work, and yesterday was a gorgeous ride into Lichfield, so when I saw the wonderful weather I decided to abandon the stuff I’d planned today, and went up on the Chase for a blast in the unseasonably warm weather.

The mist came too, which made the whole thing precious, but Rugeley Power Station seemed to be in hiding. I haven’t been as captivated by the autumn for years – this one has been beautiful, and the mist today made it doubly stunning.

Good to see the deer back, too. Last couple of times I’ve been to the usual spot, they’ve not been there. I was getting concerned.

Anyway, back to the usual posting schedule later. And more of this kind of thing, as ever, on my 365daysofbiking journal.

    BBC Weather News…

    The UK’s November temperature record has been broken, with 22.4C (72.3F) being reached in mid Wales.
    The temperature was recorded in Trawsgoed, Ceredigion, on Sunday afternoon.
    The previous record was also in Wales, where temperatures reached 21.7C (71.1F) in Prestatyn in 1946.
    BBC Weather’s Helen Willetts said: “It’s a long-standing record that’s gone and it could even be broken again on Monday.”

    Lovely photos of Cannock Chase. I’m six thousand miles away and I get homesick sometimes.

    You certainly have an eye for a good shot, thought that before with the Chasewater pics, thank you very much.
