Two whole weeks have just disappeared like the speed of light and I haven't ........ posted on Shadow Shot Sunday that is! Shame on me! But this week I took the day off and went chasing shadows around Shrewsbury Quarry!
There's a wooden board just as you go in which gives you a potted history of how it all came about! During the 14th century, the Dingle Garden was actually just a wet quarry hole consisting of poor quality red sandstone and the gardens were developed over a period of time. In 1647, Mrs Foxhall was burned at the stake there for poisoning her husband! (All you who are rotten cooks beware - Thank the Good Lord for Gordon Ramsey, Nigella Lawson and Delia she says! )
Anyway, moving on ......
Come and walk with me along Victoria Quay - the old cabin cruiser is still moored up along the bank. Look how it reflects in the water of the Severn
Or take a laid back cruise along the river. I really want to do that one day!
Look at the ducks, they're in no hurry...
Autumn's right on our door step. Everywhere underneath the trees, a deepening mass of crackly copper bronze leaves and brittle seeds.
Let's walk along the pathway
See how the sun has cast a shadow on the peeling paintwork.
Look you can see the Shoemaker's Arbour just across the lake.
And take in the reflection on a tiny inlet.
And trace the shadow of the ferns and the narrow bendy tree.
I've loved your company. Thank you so much.
Happy Shadow Shot Sunday
