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

Riding Off Into the Sunset


into the sunset-1

My, how you’d have laughed if you’d seen me scrambling out of the car to take this photo. I wasn’t very fast on the draw I’m afraid, it was framed better about 5 yards earlier, but there you go, such is life.

And a s we are a neighbourly bunch around here, why not pop across and say hello to The West is Yet to Come I got rather nostalgic for the highs and lows of discovering just what you’ve let yourself in for, by buying ‘a home with a bit of land’

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. hiya, love the pic – i like riding off into the sunset – especially to ponder things! and yes, horses don’t half make a mess of the fields at this time of the year – its great for losing the odd wellington boot in. 🙂

  2. I would say it’s still pretty good. One to keep.

  3. Love the warm tones and those distant hills as well

  4. It looks like a sepia tone — my first thought was an “antique” photograph. I like the “off balance” composition. Gives it a sense of movement.

  5. It’s like layers of dreams.

  6. Hey, thanks for the link and the kind words. It’s all slightly daunting for us – evrything’s alive! This is a gorgeous shot, really gets that soft autumn feel. and the pace of the country. Next, the hard frosty stuff…

  7. Wow! I don’t see how this photo could possibly be any better. I love the layers, the light, the tone… everything. It’s stunning.

  8. I can relate to scrambling around trying to get a good shot! Amazing photo, – riding off into the sunset is something not everyone gets to actually see in real life.

  9. Gorgeous photo, as usual! And yes, I can imagine you breaking something vital in your haste to exit the car & get this picture!
