Looking north

Looking north over the Cheviots

First…HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you and yours had an enjoyable time over the recent holiday season.

I spent a lot of time in Durham with my family and just returned to Powburn and the beautiful Breamish Valley a couple of days ago. So, at the first opportunity, I was out on my bike yesterday and cycling along the valley. What a glorious day it was: cold and crisp but with an enduring sun that cast long shadows throughout the day.

Here are some photos I took from near Hartside, at an altitude of around 280m, looking north along the course of the River Breamish in the direction of Linhope Spout in the Cheviot Hills.

Great to be back!
