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

A Beacon of Light


A beacon for the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

Beacon -1

As far as the photography is concerned it would have helped if I had remembered to take the tripod.

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. That photograph is better because you forgot the tripod. Beautiful.

  2. A blaze of glory! From the looks of the weather as Royalty ‘flotilla’d’ down the Thames, the heat from a warm blaze such as yours would have been most welcome 🙂

  3. You might have forgotten the tripod, but you’re still one step closer than me – I can’t even remember to purchase one!

  4. Lovely picture all the same. Like Glo said, they could have done with a nice warm fire like this on the royal barge.

  5. Such a warm picture! xx

  6. I tried to see it but I couldn’t.

  7. it still works though–it depicts movement,energy, the lighting around the silhouetted figures is nice

  8. I like that photo. Congrats on the jubilee!
