July 28, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

A Chester sunrise wander

May 29, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

The colours were almost autumnal in the warm, mist-filtered sunlight, I just love being out first thing in the morning (5.00am), even in a busy place like Chester you have the place pretty much to yourself which makes the time even more special.
