Wild Winds and Dancing Light
The gale force winds and lashing rain early on Thursday morning may not have seemed ideal conditions for a walk, but what exhilaration and inspiration lay ahead!
This wonderful walk begins down Grey Towers Farm Lane, where emerging into wide fields, one sees the distinctive edge of Poole Wood with it's curved trees. Today it is topped with grey scudding clourds and seems both dark and luminous.
Further along, a rainbow rises above the historic Grey Towers mansion.
The track curves round the edge of Jubilee Plantation, where the wind flurries bring rich scents of ploughed earth.
Storm clouds gather over the distant Cleveland Hills, and the young crops shimmer bright green.
A sudden mellowing of the light, and a farm leads the eye between autumn trees.
Ahead, the cottages of Old Nunthorpe village nestle snugly, as clouds race across the ever-changing sky.
A very special walk.
