Winter Woodland

"There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations."
- Washington Irving

On the banks of the River Eden in Eden Brows.

A newly felled tree.

The afternoon sun rising over the brim of the hill, to illuminate the woodland.

Flames licking the damp wood scavenged from the woodland floor.

All these pictures were taken today as part of a Practical Outdoor Activities module. The day was focused on the environmental side of the outdoors and how the outdoors can be experienced for what it is, and not just the apparatus allowing participation in 'extreme' sports like kayaking and climbing. It was quite interesting really, and just gave me time to enjoy the outdoors for what it is; the outdoors.

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
