This morning, I was motivated by an unusual combination of sunshine and clear skies to cycle down to Busby to photograph the valley of the River Cart (White Cart Water) at this interesting time of year. There was an added dimension of a mild overnight frost.

This location looks very pleasant and colourful in the sunlight. However, during the 18th and 19th centuries this area was a hive of industrial activity centred on water powered mills.
