Along the Nicomekl River, South Surrey, BC

 

I am attaching below a similar shot posted some time ago taken the same evening.

On the Nicomekl River, South Surrey, BC

Night closes in on the Nicomekl River, South Surrey, BC

This was taken with a Lumix DMC-G1 converted to IR with a Kolari 665nm AA/hot mirror filter replacement. Taken from the top of Newlands Corner, near Guildford at the same time as the previous full spectrum images.

The Redwood Grove at Redwood Park in South Surrey.

Per the City of Surrey web site:

"Redwood Park was once part of the homestead of early pioneer, David Brown. When his twin sons, David and Peter, were 21 years old, he gave them each 40 acres on the hilltop which had been logged. They immediately began to replant it with exotic species of trees from around the world.

David and Peter lived on the property all their lives, becoming more solitary and eccentric. Eventually, they built a 2-storey treehouse, which they lived in for many years. It burned down more than once, but it has been rebuilt and is still a feature of the park.

Now a park, it has a wonderful collection of well established trees. This is a grove of redwoods that give the park it's name.

Mother's Day at The Glades Garden

 

561 172nd Street, Surrey BC

Canada

 

About The Glades:

 

The Glades covers 15 acres and includes a new parking lot and areas for future development. The original plantings cover the 5-acre garden, and contain over 1,600 mature rhododendrons, azaleas and companion plants.

 

Some of the rhododendrons are more than 6 metres (20 feet) tall, and are ablaze in colour in the spring. The garden also contains a superb collection of fine trees, many of which are now designated as heritage.

 

In 1956, Lydia and Murray Stephen purchased a 5-acre parcel of land riddled with blackberries, alder trees and stumps; remnants from turn of the century land clearings. Murray’s dream was to recreate the beautiful rhododendron gardens remembered from his youth in Scotland. They renovated the land, planting rhododendrons, azaleas, exotic trees and shrubs.

 

After Murray passed away in 1970, the garden fell into a state of decline until Jim and Elfriede DeWolf purchased the garden in 1994 and began their restoration. The garden saw another stage of transformations in 2002 when the DeWolfs gifted The Glades to the City of Surrey.

 

Numerous renovations and additions have taken place, and new ones are on the horizon. The DeWolfs have a life estate and continue to have much input into the garden, ensuring its footprint is not altered, but enhanced in a manner that Murray Stephen would approve.

After a difficult start, my wide-angle lens and I are now getting along quite nicely. ;o)

 

Downside is a village in Surrey just South of Cobham. The Surrey County Council has mapped out a 5-mile circular walk around Downside which we did a few weeks ago. It was very enjoyable although one of the landowners has erected an unprotected electric fence along one side of the narrowest part of the walk and has grown thorny bushes against the other side, which made it tricky to negotiate safely, especially with children in tow.

Anyway, for locals, here is a link to a site where you can download a pdf of the route:

This path through a wheat field bordered by oaks, some ancient, is part of the route. I returned here to capture the wheat before harvest. On a Thursday lunchtime, I had the fields to myself and it was lovely, with many turquoise damselflies flitting around me. I was, however, slightly put off by the repeated gunfire and just hoped they weren't aiming at me.

Walking the Devil's Dyke ( National Trust ) near Brighton, Sussex, England.

A legendary beauty spot on the South Downs.

Devil’s Dyke, just five miles north of Brighton, offers stunning panoramas, a record breaking valley, a curious history and England’s most colourful habitat.

 

At nearly a mile long, the Dyke valley is the longest, deepest and widest 'dry valley' in the UK. Legend has it that the Devil dug this chasm to drown the parishioners of the Weald. On the other hand, scientists believe it was formed naturally just over 10,000 years ago in the last ice age.

 

( This was the easy part of the hike, however, ascending the slopes on the way back was another matter...there were lots of steps to climb....up- and-up it went....It was hard work, but the views over the valley were very rewarding ).

 

From my trip to the UK: Visited Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.

Blackie Spit peninsula and on the other side of it is the Crescent Beach – my previous image. Somehow in last few days, you can see the summer slipping quietly away and fall approaching.
