Autumn Inspirations

Autumn Inspirations
Wingfield Hall
This morning as looked out the window taking in the Autumn mist scene I decided to go out on an inspirational walk with the our borrowed dog Rhia in tow! Walking down from Church street ,Heage past the windmill at this point could not see it through the mist. Heading down towards the famous Excavator Pub dicing with death along the way escaping into a nearby field thinking I may have trespassed but I literally could not see oncoming traffic. Whilst making our way across the field continuing taking shots of the local countryside overlooking Ballie’s pond. Then crossing the road on the A610 towards Pentrich looking for the footpath towards Wingfield I never found it so carried on walking along the B610 to get to my destination taking more photos the mist was disappearing fast as noon began burning it away! Still some hills in the distance towards Crich Stand on the left clung onto their misty blanket so enchanting! To top the view off a wonderful sight of a Hot air balloon hovering above the misty blanket giving me thoughts of a favourite old classic film 80 days around the world. Then to the right across the road a recently ploughed field or two reminding me of the adorable film Warhorse our beautiful Derbyshire countryside taking me back in time how wonderful is Derbyshire in all Four Seasons. Eventually I start clambering up bank sides just to get my dream views with the poor dog taking every step with me. We even made a few cow friends trying to get closer Rhia decides she should bark them off! Clambering yet again to get more views just so breath taking! We then cross the road further into Pentrich near Wingfield getting every possible view I can with my smartphone. Eventually I sat for a moment breathing in the Derbyshire air & taking in the awesome views. Lo & behold a convoy of bikes came through we dare not move but the scene was awesome & it felt friendly as we know they are hubby being a seasoned biker & all. Then down into Jacksons Lane we or rather I clambered into the field on the right as close as I can get to Wingfield, dodging the cowpats I did but the dog didn’t! After getting my closer shots we head back out the field the dog nearly walked off as I let go of her lead I panicked & had to get through the gate in a contortionist manner forgetting my age & forgetting I’m not a contortionist either! Irritating an old hip injury! At this point hubby came to collect me in his beloved old jalopy jeep. Ending our inspirational journey with a stop at ambergate bacon van surrounded by more beautiful scenery & a warm cup of tea! New print available on! – ‘Autumnal Mist’ by Mandy-Jayne Ahlfors –
