This was a great day to be stood outside making notes and one of the first autumnal days this year. I locked my bicycle up at the supermarket and then walked a few metres across the car park in the direction of Denby Dale road. There is a fenced off culvert there in which you can see murky water which will end not far, flowing into the River Calder further up Ings road by The Hepworth. It's very quiet pedestrian wise, a few parked cars and a people walking into town, other than that there is no reason for people to hang around. There is lots of noise though, Traffic, tractors, trains, road works, lorries, usual town centre commotion.
There are plenty of people about. I get the impression unlike me, they are on their way to somewhere rather than just hanging out in the woods drawing. I feel weird. There are birds twittering but other than that it's all pretty quiet.
