A canal walk

One early Sunday morning we parked by the canal at Bradley and walked into Skipton. It was a still and sunny day with few people about and short though the walk is, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

There’s something about the charm of old buildings plus the reflections on the pacid water.

We came across this amazing fungus, one I’ve never seen before. Does anyone know what it is?

    That looks disgusting! I haven’t seen anything like that before. It looks like raw liver but could it be a jelly fungus?

    I love tree fungus but not seen anything so unusual.

    Kind regards, Deborah

    I should have said jelly ear! If you look closely it does look like an ear.

    Hi, I love the reflections ton. The fungus is called Jew’s ears or Woods ears.
