Blue sky day


Blue sky day

The beginning of what I call a perfect walk, beautiful scenery, great weather, a pub in the middle for a drink and then there was a great cafe at the end of the walk!!

Perfect combination Sticki. Where did you take this photo?

2 Apr, 2012

 

Gorgeous! Yes, where is it?

2 Apr, 2012

 

Come on Sticki I want to know too,!!

2 Apr, 2012

 

Perfect! Look at that beautiful sky.

2 Apr, 2012

 

Sorry, I forgot to say, this is Elterwater in the Lake District.

2 Apr, 2012

 

lovely photo, must add that location to my "one day" list!

2 Apr, 2012

 

absolutely beautiful

2 Apr, 2012

 

Just how I like it! A beautiful lake with hills behind!

2 Apr, 2012

 

sounds like heaven Sticki.... great photo...

2 Apr, 2012

 

Amazing you sound like you are having fun.

2 Apr, 2012

 

and the best bit is, no one else around, at least I hope there wasn't, or not many, at least. To be able to enjoy things like this without a horde (herd?) of others yakking in the background doubles the pleasure.

ps:

perfect scene:
water mirrors sky,
blue on blue.

thank you all, Im glad you liked it ~ it was just perfect! and yes fran an added bonus was the lack of crowds!

2 Apr, 2012

 

oh, wonderful - the prob with "silent places" is that so many people want to see them at the same and can't stop yakking or litering - and even if they go on their own they can't keep off their damn phones!

you wouldnt believe how loud one woman was when i was in a bird hide today!!!

2 Apr, 2012

 

lol on a scale of one to ten? was she in the hide, or passing by? no wonder that the birdsong that most people hear are alarm calls "watch out, there's a human about!"

2 Apr, 2012

 

What a beautiful photo.

2 Apr, 2012

 

if 1 is acceptable she spoke at 4 or 5 ~ normal speech level ~ in the hide!!! not about the birds.

thank you HB, it was just one of those places and one of those moments!!

2 Apr, 2012

 

It looks great. It's been freezing and wet here today.

2 Apr, 2012

 

what the heck did she think, that the hide was soundproof as well???

2 Apr, 2012

 

sorry you had such bad weather sheilar, i expected worse here but in fact we had quite a warm sunny day!

no idea fran, for some odd reason and very thankfully the birds didnt seem to notice or i might have said something ~ i did keep looking in total disbelief! the children [not hers] were really good.

2 Apr, 2012

 

lol don't think I've had shown such restraint!

2 Apr, 2012

 

:-)

What a perfect scene Sticki. I love the Lake District so much. It makes my heart sing. I might go there on my own one day as my OH doesn't care for it much....I don't know what is wrong with him ...I suppose it's because there aren't any golf courses there ;) Anyway, since he has now given me a holiday 'ban for life' I can jolly well go on my OWN holidays in future! lol :)))

2 Apr, 2012

 

a holiday 'ban for life'???

good for you ~ you would love it, its so beautiful. pansy potter put a lovely blog on last summer ~ that might tempt you [although she didnt have such good weather]

2 Apr, 2012

 

Yup! I've been and got my self banned for life for being "too grumpy" on holiday. From now on, I will be 'forced' to stay at home and tend my garden (lol....result!). ;))

2 Apr, 2012

 

i bet he doesnt mean it!!

i love time on my own!!!

2 Apr, 2012

I just found this pic of yours Sticki, same beautiful blues as the one I put in from my friend. Where is your ID photo taken, that looks like another lovely pic.

4 Jan, 2013

 

hello Shirl! I had forgotten this picture but you are right, same blue!
This photo was taken in Elterwater, not far from Derwent water in the Lake District

My ID photo is Luskentyre, Harris, Outer Hebrides, a place I truly love.

as you can see I love blue!!

4 Jan, 2013

 

Some lovely photos. Thanks for putting them on for us all to see.
I love blue too, my husband's favourite colour, though I have to say, that generally my fave colour is green!

5 Jan, 2013

 

ah ~ same as me Shirl, green is my favourite but its blue that makes me smile!

Put the two together and thats what i really love!

thanks Shirl

5 Jan, 2013

 

Blue always was my very favourite colour, even when I was a kid; deep blue, sapphire, or lake-blue as shown in this pic! Sadly, this was back in the Late Stone Age - I couldn't have anything blue because "blue is for boys", so I was stuck with supid pink(lol you wouldn't believe how much contempt I can get into the word "pink" nowadays!)

Green runs it a close second, all shades of green, but blue seems to be THE colour for me

5 Jan, 2013

 

i know exactly what you mean fran ~ i really dont like pink but some shades are ok, like bright fuchsia!
