Rainy walk on Hampstead Heath in the late afternoon / early evening.
London December 2021
On arrival on the heath. A bit grey today.
Video of some parakeets in this tree.
Photos of the parakeets.
Difficult to get good shots from this distance with this lighting!
Anyway hopefully you get the idea.
The ritual circle bit in the woods.
Today's wine: Jean Chauvenet Nuits Saint Georges. Dark, brooding and rather intense.
This was pretty good, although might have benefited from aging a bit longer.
The view from the barrow.
I retreated into the woods as it started to rain.
I attempted to improvise some kind of hands free rain shelter.
It sort of worked.
The London skyline seen from just below the barrow.
Zoomed in a bit.
The barrow, looking a bit glum.
The barrow after sunset.
Me and the barrow in the dark.
Video of walking through the woods in the dark.
My second attempt to make some sort of rain shelter.
Rainy view of the London skyline from the top of Parliament Hill.
Later on, back at home, getting ready for Santa Claus' arrival - instead of mince pies this year we laid out some home made cookies.
