Running the Ribble Valley

After spending so many years so close to this part of the world, the only surprise is that I haven't spent more time here before now.
Another early start and another beautiful morning, running the Ribble Valley.
Nb. Both the pictures in this and the previous post were taken on an iPhone - while I will happily run with the SLR in a small pack, I find myself doing so less and less, principally because on mornings like these, I would be stopping every few minutes to take photos. It remains a dilemma and on many occasions I have sorely missed the camera, but more often, especially on these longer routes, I am grateful to be free of the pack and the weight.
