Places – Gorse Hill Nature Reserve

Gorse Hill is in Ormskirk, along a small lane that runs from the town and soon is within the folds of more open countryside. We kept seeing the people who run in at various shows at martin Mere, and every year we would take the leaflet, promise to ourselves that we would go and have a look and duly fail to do so. Today was open day as part of the National Gardens Scheme, the one admission also giving accesss to another local suburban garden in the town.

Dusting off the Pentax K-3 II and SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens, Sue and I made our way to Gorse Hill a little earlier today. It was hot, probably around 32C, which I describe as being “outside my engineering tolerances” – too hot for me in other words. Nonetheless, walking under the canopy of trees was very pleasant and positively cool by comparison and some images were made. First a few from Gorse Hill.

The second destination, the suburban garden, was just someobody’s back garden, but small though it was it was also very well made.
