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

In Splendid Isolation


The mist and snow cut back on the detail and distractions, as illustrated by a couple of hawthorn trees.  The first thriving the south facing side of the hill

Enchanted wood 4-1

The second on the north and showing more character to my mind, but not  berry left between them.

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.

  2. Very fine misty captures of the beautiful trees.

  3. Lovely. I always like a ‘compare and contrast’ exercise.

  4. I really like monochrome pictures like these! xx

  5. Winter’s back. Austere and unapologetic and utterly beautiful.
