I’ve struggled this summer to take decent pictures for my blogs. The constant rain and dark skies have made it challenging to say the least! Making the blogs interesting too is always difficult. I have been writing a dozen blogs since starting this one every week. My WordPress blog will be 2 years old next month and have page views in 5 figures and this one is still struggling because it’s only 6 months old. Most readers for this blog come from search and I don’t expect it to do well until we have more subscribers. You can subscribe using the box in the sidebar or tick the box when you comment.
The summer seems to have returned to England at long last. I took this photo the other night, with the sun shining through the trees. It seems a popular picture, perhaps because it excites the imagination. Maybe it’s the unusual angle. I took it from the top of the aqueduct. I get nervous of heights and of deep water so I wasn’t very comfortable. I also wrote a few blogs this week, that you might like to read. Just up the road from there, the river crosses the road under a bridge and then runs alongside the lake separating it from the playing fields and the canal. There’s a 700 year old Manor House down the road in Hall Green Road. You can just see a bit of the 18th century aqueduct in the picture.
