Some images from my walk yesterday.
I took a different track from my usual one. It was quite a bit steeper. This is a view from the top, looking over the valley to the next spur where you can see the track I take on most of my walks. As you can see the hillside has got very dry and brown in the last few weeks. Summer is nearly over - in fact, technically it is autumn already, but we are having the warmest weather we have had all summer.
Normally the sheep would get up and wander off when I approach. This one was looking at me as if to say "Nah...it's just too hot to bother".
