A rural view of the Southern Howgill Fells in the Yorkshire Dales
A lot of my posts and photos here are naturally from mountainsides and mountain tops. Many many times we look out over the views and making up most of the scenery are the green green fields shaped over centuries by farming and animals into the land we know and love.
In fact a lot of the time it is taken for granted as we trudge to start a climb. In our haste to get high we can forget that under our feet and around us is this green layer of beauty.
During my trips around the world recently I am realising more and more just what we have. Take Maui for instance. It was a paradise. Beaches, sun, pools and warmth. However, more than a few residents there have their dreams set on our green green pastures. It was so different and beautiful to them.
These scenes occur all across Britain. Top to Bottom. You do not have to get out on foot to appreciate them. Next time you are on your holidays or on a journey.. even taking a drive down the A1 at any point, safely look sideways. Fields and fields of greens and flowers. Wonderful! Here’s a selection of photos i found that show only a small part of this wonder.
