Ogden Water

Ogden Water is a small reservoir on the way to Halifax. It's not a wildly scenic spot, though it is very pleasant for a walk. Its main attraction for me is that I can do a brisk circular walk round the whole thing in quite a manageable time (well, it would be even quicker if I didn't stop every few minutes to take a photo!), making me feel virtuous for having done it but not taking up the whole day. As you can see, the light on this day was pretty spectacular, with a very dark sky and bright sunshine illuminating the trees.

When I arrived, I was astonished to find cars queueing to get into the lane and small car park. I had no idea it was such a popular spot on a winter Sunday! However, it turned out that there was a cross-country race being run in the area ... so the country park would no doubt return to its usual tranquillity in time.


  1. Beautiful contrasting light, jennyfreckles.

  2. This looks to be a very attractive and enticing area for photographs and the walking track is a bonus! Lovely shot Jenny. Thank you for stopping by my blog.
