We began this cold, bright, day with two trips to the recycling centre to dispose of bags of garden refuse. Afterwards we drove around the east of the forest and back.
The waterlogged green at Pilley reflected the houses beside it.
and buildings were similarly mirrored in the more permanent lake. Some of the animals drank the clear water, others dozed on the bank. Note the thatched homes.
The workman seen to the left of the nearest cottage was ignored by the ponies as he walked backwards and forwards from front to back of the house. Apart from the presently muddy bank and sodden bench, this was a convenient site for a bus stop. The house is named Gravel Pit Cottage, thus giving an indication of the origin of the lake. I’ve only ever seen animals drinking from the edge, suggesting that it is probably quite deep in the middle.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s special cottage pie; perfectly prepared broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and cabbage; and very tasty gravy. I finished the Chateauneuf du Pape.
Thanks, Derrick. You do have an eye for a good reflection.
Thank you very much, Roland
Lovely reflections, Derrick. Today we went to the recycling centre with garden waste as well. It was a gorgeous, cold and sunny day. Until we reached Felbrigg Estate where we went for a walk. I had my camera with me, but it started to rain and it has done ever since. Have a lovely evening!
Many thanks, Dina. A shame about your rain
Love those reflections derrick!
Thanks very much, Lynn
I love all the shades of blue (the sky and water). Nice work Derrick
Many thanks, Lonely
Love the reflections!
Thanks very much, Cindy
Lovely captures of the reflections Derrick ?
Thanks very much, Val
I love the branches and sky reflected in the water.
I wondered about very easy gravy. It made me laugh.
Thanks very much, Merril. That’s twice WP have done that. I must be more vigilant. Glad it raised a laugh, though. Now amended.
I thought maybe it was intentional–that it was some type of gravy called very easy gravy. 🙂
Beautiful reflection shots, Derrick. Okay, time to educate me…what is cottage pie?
Same as shepherd’s pie, only with minced beef, not lamb, topped with mashed potato. Jackie adds cheese to the topping – I add leeks. This was always what you made on Monday with the left over Sunday joint. Thanks a lot Jill.
There’s an awful lot of water lying around there, most giving lovely reflections. We had flooding yesterday, no reflections included 🙂
Thanks very much, Pauline. I trust all is well
Thanks very much, Michael
A bucolic scene, as ever. Your group images are individually attractive s well. Thanks for that jaunt!
Many thanks, Cynthia
So many horses. What a pretty sight.
Thanks very much, Laurie
Those are riveting photographs of reflections, well framed and well balanced frames of watery magic. I wonder what it would be like living in the Gravel Pit Cottage near the deep pond?
Thanks a lot, Uma. The garden of the cottage is a long one, very well tended.
Reflections are so much fun, and these are beautiful. I was thinking they are like magic, too. Yay for recycling!
Thanks very much, JoAnna
Great reflections, Gravel pit certainly denotes quite a depth I would think.
Many thanks, Ian
You excelled yourself with those shots, Derrick. Lovely! I’m hopeless at taking shots of reflections – I should look into it.
Many thanks, Mike It always pays to look into it 🙂
beautiful images and what always sounds like yummy vittles to finish the day, priceless <3
Very many thanks, Kim
Thanks very much, Cathi

Glad to see you are getting plenty of healthy veg. The reflections looked good.
Thanks very much, Quercus
Just got to have gravy
Yep. Thanks, Brian
I enjoyed seeing the ponies, and those are great captures of reflections n the water, especially the trees.
Thank you very much, Lavinia
Very beautiful and peaceful imageries, Derrick.
