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

Light Show


Heather 4-2

I took these photos in the space of a few minuets, I pulled off the road and watched as gusty winds sent  clouds scudding  across the fields and moors at harrier speeds.


How lucky am I to watch a light show like this on the way home from work?

There are other things to feed in life, beside bellies.

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. Absolutely beautiful. So glad that you did stop and have shared this moment with us.

  2. I am so pleased to see your photos. Working landscapes retain some sort of charm – a charm that is difficult to quantify. I occasionally post photos of our Vermont landscape. It is less austere as it is largely wooded. Yet the similarities remain.

  3. Beautiful series of photographs. Scrolling down the 1st I “cropped off” the bottom 25% and was left with a stunning abstract pattern formed by the fields – take a look for yourself.

  4. Fabulous – how wonderful that you paid attention and stopped. Often when we are viewing something fantastic (deer feeding in a yard or 200 eagles circling overhead or a duck family walking across the road) there are so many who dart past with unseeing eyes – I wish they would stop and take the time to see the wonders.

  5. Realy beautiful, “Heather1-2” with the blue sky is my favorite.

  6. The way the light falls on the land, flows over it, caresses it, feeds my spirit. These images glow.

  7. Yes, that’s right. Thanks for reminding us.

    And thanks for stopping to show us all these wonderful places.

  8. oohhh! prreettiiee!-\E.T talk

  9. Beautiful!

    And yes, there are other things to feed. Thank you for the reminder. 🙂
