The path towards my favourite place to relax..................... Haydn's Pool

The nearest place to park the car to wander around my local woodlands has free parking
 A bit of a rarity in the UK ..... this is where I park when visiting Haydn's Pool.
 The footpath during Spring.

Summer.
 Autumn.
...and frozen in Winter.
My goal... Haydn's Pool is a wonderful place to visit, relax and just watch wildlife.

I can (and do) spend hours here.... just chilling.

That last capture is really good- a combination of a weak sun and the reflection. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

just the place to unwind; doesn't 'time' get away so easily. Great series; that icey path would be dangerous I'd expect. Do you walk it with special shoes or keep to the verges...? Or simply don't walk there?

Wonderful pictures!

That was neat seeing the same scene during each of the four seasons. It must have taken you a year to do that! (;^))

i like that you have chosen to photograph the path that you take to get to you final destination. When taking that photo in spring you must have though...... oh well only 12 months to go.

I love the path in all seasons but Spring is my favourite - yes! Haydn's Pool is a place to sit and ponder - with camera in tow of course.

How great that you did the path through the seasons. I keep thinking to do that, but always seem to miss one! Haydn's Pool looks just lovely. Any relationship with the composer?

This is so great, having the different seasonal shots from the same location. Summer is my favorite because of the beautiful clouds.
