Photographer's Note

After we had returned to the car from the walk through Miller’s Woods, (seehere), we set off again through Arncliffe Woods, which is reached just over a footbridge located through one of the arches of the railway bridge, (nearBeggar's Bridge). This was a really muddy walk, as presumably the shelter of the trees had prevented the frost from hardening the ground. Not far through the woods it is possible to see some of the most stunning reflections in the River Esk that I have seen for a while. It was a must to get down the bankside to the edge of the river. I was so glad I was the only one with a camera, as I succeeded in doing the splits; one foot was firmly anchored at the top of the bank while the other foot slid without stopping as far as it could get. For the rest of the way I did a passable impersonation of a crab. Nothing hurt but my dignity. Last time we were there we saw some otters, but not on this occasion.
As well as the reflections you can still see frost on the grass at the other side of the river. The speed was slow so I set the 2 second timer to help with hand holding.
