I can’t remember the last time I walked down a public footpath across a field. We do have a key historical one across our land, but haven’t walked along our fields for a while, and I’ve never taken N specifically on a walk along one. I think that might need to change.
I love seeing the yellow patchwork fields against the green and brown at the moment, and I wanted to get some photos of them. So I dragged N to walk when I spotted a place to park next to one. It was on the edge of a nearby village, and all we could see was the rape seed crops in the fields surrounding us.
N really enjoyed the short walk we did, and although he moaned about having his photo taken, he was happy to try and measure how tall the crops were against himself. Needless to say most of the photos with him facing the camera had him scowling, so this was one of my favourites despite the shot of his back.
Do you walk along public footpaths? Have you found any interesting spots on your walks?
