There is'nt anything remarkable about the scene above Lumbutts, its pleasent, nice walking country with high moorland and a steepness that descend down to a valley floor choked with railways roads and canals. At best this upland scene can be seen as tawney in colour at worst it can be described as drab...both would be wrong in my humble opinion. A shift of light or what could best described as light over the moor and a hundred shades of green emerge. Despite the low watt bulb in the sky, there is a definate move of sparkle. This is Penine Yorkshire gold, a god green that shimmers and sparkles in a way thats no different than a Lake District vale.

A second painting of the River Roddlesworth again near calf Hey Bridge. I made this particular one earlier in the year either late spring or early summer. I aim to get back there this week to catch the low sun light during this unusually warm November

I love this particular spot, although its only a short walk from the main Belmont Road its a quiet corner thats seldom visited. The light coming through into the beech woods always dazzles as it plays between the branches onto the young river, even on the most shady of days.
