Leave only footprints

Ok, not a long post this week but still I feel it is worth saying.

I have said before that I believe we have some of the most beautiful countryside in the country here up north.

Sometimes when I venture out I am taken by surprise at just how nice it really is.  Then I am brought back down to earth again. Despite the fact I am in the middle of nowhere and their is not a soul around, why am I then seeing rubbish lying around?

what is that empty water bottle doing floating in this idyllic stream? Why is that crisp packet blowing around my feet?

If you have taken the time and effort to actually come to these places, then surely it’s not too hard to tidy up after yourself.

I chose the image for this post for that very reason.  From memory I had to clone out a broken bike helmet and an empty 2 litre coke bottle.

As the old saying goes “leave only footprints, take only pictures”.
