Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been out in the deep midwinter dodging the mud slingers of Stur Trailway...
"There was snow on my car the morning I decided to see how Stur Trailway was coping in mid-January and as you would expect, the puddles were big and very muddy. It was best to give cyclists a wide berth or get a covering of muddy spots from head to toe. There were blues skies, heavy black clouds, mini-rainbows and squeaky fresh air. It was glorious." - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been braving the elements to bring us these stunning pictures of an early winter evening in Stalbridge...
"The winter light kissed the houses and fields around Stalbridge as we sank into another freezing night as I took these photos. There were still hardy dog walkers about as the wind chill made us think of brandy and mulled wine".
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been out, braving the winter cold to give us a helping of frosties....They're G-r-r-eat! Just click on a photo in the gallery to view it in full screen...
"Imagine being able to hear frost forming on the landscape. Each blade of grass, leaf and muddied rut is blessed with the sheer beauty of the frost fairy. It reminds me of an artist painting each curve, each detail in the most miraculous paint." - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden took this beautiful cloudscape while on an early winter walk down Wood Lane in Stalbridge. Have a look at this one and more in the gallery below...
"A few more photos from my favourite place in Stalbridge - Wood Lane. No matter what time of day or year I walk there, I always find joyful little plants in the walls and hedgerows. Such a magical place". - Carolyn Roden.
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden took these lovely photos on a ramble in Sherborne at the start of Autumn.
Carolyn Roden has been out and about in Stalbridge with her cameraphone, capturing cloud spirits and sunsets...
"I managed to catch some peaceful shots of the evening sky from Wood Lane and the Rec a couple of nights ago".
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been undercover in 10 Acre Woods at the end of Wood Lane in Stalbridge..."What a beautiful, mixed woodland it is! I love the tall, mature trees on the righthand side as you go in. They have an enormous presence and as we are on the cusp of autumn, leaves were beginning to change colour and some seem to take on an interesting form that looked almost sculptural". - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been back to the Stalbridge Nature Reserve...
"These photos are from the Nature Reserve in Stalbridge. There was a flat, grey sky the day I visited but nature still came up with her surprises. As the year begins to turn to autumn, flowers fade and seeds and berries form. It's the circle of life and brings with it a depth of understanding for the preciousness of life on this planet". - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden goes on the beaten track to discover another jewel in the Dorset crown...
"Having lived here for 9 months now we are still discovering the secret gems of Dorset and Shillingstone Trailway turned out to be one of them. Travelling between stunning hills and crossed by the River Stour, it was a pure and gentle pleasure, even though we were there on a day when the Railway Cafe and Shop were closed". - Carolyn Roden
Our roving photographer Carolyn Roden has been out and about again...this time capturing more photos showing the diversity of flowers in and around Stalbridge.
