The Lakes at Whisby, Lincolnshire

This morning my wife and I went for a short walk around the Coot Lake and Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln.  We had a clear blue sky and beautiful light  At Whisby even when the leaves have gone there is a wonderful variety of colour in the browns and golds of the trees, and this morning the water was reflecting the pure blue of the sky.

I’ll not attempt a detailed account of the Whisby Nature Park just now.  That may come later, but here are three photographs.  I only had my old Panasonic DMC-FZ1 camera with me, and the pics are a little grainy, but they do illustrate how, even without hills as backcloth to the water, such small lakes can still provide a beautiful relaxing country atmosphere. Nature reserves of this kind not only are good for wildlife but provide marvellous gentle recreational facilities, easily accessible to people in nearby towns and cities.
