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

Second Glance


As Yesbuts kindly pointed out, some of the photos from yesterdays post, had hidden depths, so I’ve gone back and done a little more cropping.

Second Glance-2

And squeezed some more juice out of the rest of the series.

The hill in the foreground of the photo below is called The Knott, in the background is the Kinder plateau and the white looking notch on the skyline is the Kinder downfall

If you fancy a pint, the pub is  called The Grouse.

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 like these a lot. I believe I pretty much always fancy a pint. The Grouse, eh? Must keep that in mind. The pub in the midst of jewel-toned hills and dales, where drystone walls march off toward the horizon. Got it.

  2. I love the moors at this time of year, I’m driving over to Manchester airport via the Winnats and Prestbury early on Monday morning so am looking forward to enjoying the views and seeing all the heather. Will wave as I pass:)

  3. Been away a while. So just caught up on your recent efforts. Really great photo’s of a beautiful area. I also enjoyed your meeting with Inspector Gadget, as I read his stuff.

    However, I feel that more photo’s of Spud are in order.


  4. The first series was beautiful, but with YesBut’s suggestion the second is different, but equally wonderful. Love the rolling hills and color.

  5. Both these and the others are terrific! xx

  6. Lovely pictures, reminding me of my younger years when I lived in Derbyshire (Derby, to be precise) and loved to get out on the hills. I still manage to visit occasionally; less mobile now but still enjoy the scenery passing through on a coach, and always find plenty worth photographing.

  7. That little spot near the junction were you have photographed the Grouse Pub has hidden delights Uphill. Its too late but if you drive back towards Charlesworth there are some amazing blackberry bushes that ive picked from for 4 years. The crumbles they have provided have gone down very well indeed.
    Good pictures
