Blue Sky At Last

Photos and text by John Callister

After all the rain we’ve had over the past few weeks, not to mention the recent Storm Francis, it was just great to see a bit of blue sky today at last. With the realisation that we’re approaching the end of August and daylight hours are getting shorter, I badly wanted to make the most of any good weather while the going’s good.

I was fortunate enough to be able to get out for a cycle this morning on some of the country roads near where I live. These are some photos of scenes I came across, all within a few miles of my home.

Because these are narrow country roads and sometimes difficult for two cars to pass, I don’t often drive down them. However, with the recent purchase of an electric bike, a whole new world may be opening up. Today was a great day for this trip and I trust there will be many more.
