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

Bruise Blue and Acid Green


I love the drama of stormy spring skies

The strong wind was whipping the clouds along at a rate of knots, the light, changing so fast that the moments were hard to capture, I had to be quick off the mark, which meant I abandoned the family to their own devices yet again, Mr Uhdd was expecting me to cut his hair when I dashed to take these shots (he should be grateful I wasn’t half way through the job.)

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. Reminds me of times I’ve been in Cornwall in the spring! xx

  2. Brings back memories of riding along the Tissington Trail in similar weather. Now whenever i’m horse riding on days like that I always think of Derbyshire and wish I was back there.

  3. I love the drama, too! I’m amazed at how familiar this landscape looks – then realize I’ve been visiting it for quite awhile now. Bracing place. Interesting people. Challenging ideas. OK, and a lovely goofball sense of humor, too.

  4. Oh, lovely!

  5. Great photos, love the one with the gate. The drama of stormy skies is wonderful but the wind I can do without I fear!

  6. Beautiful shots.

    I’ve always liked the contrast between the spring colors and storm skies, too. Those dark grey skies really bring out the colors in the plants.

  7. Beautiful. Every time I see your landscape photos, I feel like I’m back in your beautiful country and that’s a good feeling. It’s so nice to know that you can live there and find it as unique and wonderful as a visitor does.

  8. Wonderful spring images, UHDD. I think we’re getting the same storm clouds as you!!

  9. Wonderfully moody.

  10. I never get bored with stormy skies.
