Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

A Feast


A visual feast, a banquet and I have stuffed my self silly , totally pigged out on the yummyness of it all; it snowed over night and then this morning the sun shone, words fail me as to just how beautiful it was first thing, what ever is in the camera won’t do justice to it, the stillness, the peacefulness, the warmth of the sunshine, the deliciousness of it, so I’ll shut up and let you take a look.









If I eat anymore I’ll be sick, so that will do for starters, I’ll post or upload some more to Flickr later, I need a lie down.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. I woke up to snow here in London but it’s already melted! I took some photos but nothing like these, which are superb. Breathtaking indeed! xx

  2. Snow and blue sky ~ a perfect combination with beautiful scenery! Lovely post 🙂

  3. That light frosting is truly lovely, and you’ve made the most of it. I particularly admire the towering treetops yearning toward each other.

    However. We in Northern Michigan regret to inform you that we are sick and tired of s**w and wish to see no more of it. Even though today was pure ugliness, it was warm, sunny ugliness, notable for the absence of s**w. We are all drunk with the possibility of spring.

  4. Sounds like a hangover Gerry, over consumption of s**w. 😦 our s**w went by lunch time and came back by tea time and today has dawned as beautiful and white/blue as yesterday, but as there is much to be done today, I could actually do with out it complicating matters (because it always seems to bring travel arrangements to a halt in the UK, we think it such a big deal, can you tell :)?)

  5. What a fascinating, fantastically landscape you have in northern England. Beautiful photos.


    Thank you for the comment at my blog.

  6. It snowed most of the weekend in Aberdeen. Not one flake stuck.

  7. Beautiful! Great captures of the landscapes and trees in the frosty snow. The last photo of the winding road, low hills, and fence posts reminds me of what Kansas looks like when freshly covered in snow.

  8. Hi UHDD (hey, I’ve just worked it out!)

    Stunning photos, absolutely gorgeous! None more so than any of the others as they are all brilliant.

    Keep snapping!

  9. All your snowy scenes are beautiful…

    I especially love the stile – even though that’s on a different post to this one.

  10. Thanks nezza, It was a wonderful couple of hours, well worth leaving the duvet for!
