PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I have just signed up for photostory friday and I may being doing this all wrong! Time will tell!
I thought I had to take the photo on friday, so hampered by lots of rain but inspired my David AUTHOR BLOG's PSF post. I took Pippa out for her eveing walk with camera.
We strolled down the lane, just across from our home. The lane runs beside the River Eden and so l just started clicking ... trying to not think but click, 'outside the box' !

The rain had recently ceased and the clouds parted to bring out the sunlight.

I love the pattern of tree bark, pink, purple, grey, blue, green ...

Sunlight twinkles through the canopy ...

The River Eden, brooding sky ...

The thing of it is, I am usually looking down at my feet, (I am pretty clumsy!) or looking ahead watching Pippa, but TODAY I was really looking. I noticed through the lens a flapping flag. Puzzled I looked again and I realised it was the English Heritage flag on top of Carlisle Castle. I was thrilled l had noticed this little gem, that I otherwise wouldn't have noticed. We live less than a mile away, but there is a river and a park and trees that separate us. So I knew it was there, but not in our line of vision.

Like the end of my nose, I couldn't see for looking!

Thanks David for opening my eyes!
