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

As It Was



No digital trickery, just the alchemy of sunshine, snow showers and the dramatic landscape of Wasdale, Cumbria.

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. Looks great, can’t wait to go again in 2009. Your photos cheer me up every time! Not that Ruralshire is not stunning as well!

  2. Do ya’ wana see my holiday snaps 🙂
    I’ve just looked through one days worth of photographs and I can see at least 14 I’d like to post, I’m in danger of turning into a Lakeland holiday bore.

  3. I’d love to see more of your holiday snaps, these are beautiful.

    I love that area of the Lake District – we keep visiting, but never get bored.

  4. Bore away please if they’re all as dramatic and wonderful as these! xx

  5. Just make a slideshow up on flickr and link to it or embed in a post.

  6. Keep them coming, Uhdd!

  7. Yes, please, I would like you to keep pouring riches in my lap.

  8. Noddy, that’s where I was going to put the other 600!
