Really good pics sunnydale, especially the first one.  I love the way the trunks and branches appear all twisted.

Sunnydale, three photos of trees that are very evocative of 'quality of way', irrespective of how easy a path is to walk, I think quality of way is something that walkers know improves and multiplies the variation of their experience. It is the essence of these types of pictures that add quality to a trip report as much as the landscapes.


Though MWM's sunrise is a stunning landscape the part that intrigues me is the gate/style? a the base of the tree, now if this was this was the focus of the picture it would be pointing towards a way I should want to go.


Ahhh !! Easy to be a critic,not so easy to take great photos  :) [size=78%] [/size]

Some lovely shots here. 


And Pleb, Macclesfield Forest is well worth a visit - some lovely walking with a mixture of landscapes.  A favourite walk is from Wildboarclough, over Shutingsloe, drop into the Forest, down to Trentabank and Ridgegate reservoirs, follow the Gritstone Trail to the Hanging Gate pub and round the edge of Shutlingsloe back to Wildboarclough.

Rather a scruffy tree



but looking back through photos of a walk in June 2015, whilst hunting for some other family stuff, I got  blast of summer nostalgia.

As requested here is a tree shot with a gate from a walk in the North Yorkshire Moors.

The difference between good photography for the sake of photography and a good photograph for the sake of walking. How much difference can a gate make to the subject matter....................so often it can graft into the image the essence of 'quality of way'. A moment to pause, a time to reflect on the use this way has served over the centuries and that decision to have to climb over the b..... thing if it is locked! Which is the right end? the wooden post must be the slapping post and the ancient stone post is surely the hanging post, so our man has paused at the right end............but then they are so restful a place to set a spell (seem to have misspelled stile in the previous post :o  )
