Beautiful view behind my house with Gorse (Using Zoom)


Beautiful view behind my house with Gorse (Using Zoom)

This is the edge of the Quarry behind us. I love the Gorse at this time of year, but not so keen on the plastic which is covering the Maize seedlings.

now that's a sight I'd like to wake up to!

To the uninitiated, Karen, the plastic could be the sea . . . except for the angle!

You're right Fran. I have done nothing but feel sorry for myself about the cold winds. But they don't stop me looking out on to this gorgeous view. Thanks for that! Something positive to consider and dwell on.

What a great view Karen, I thought the plastic WAS the Sea!

Lol..well it does look like water when its reflecting the sky. It will be hidden soon, under the Maize.

Grew up with Gorse in Cornwall.....one of my favourite country scenes.How lovely to have that view,K.

It is Julia. It changes so much through the seasons, and depending on the weather. I just took more shots as the light suddenly turned the sky silvery.

That is a beautiful view, very calming - even on a chilly day in May!!

A delight, we have a lot of gorse, causes me no end of suffering though, so much pollen!

I'm lucky...not too much hayfever. A very occasional minor bout.

We tend to take for granted what's right in front of us - we get used to it and so it becomes part of the normal background - lol which is why I'd rather live *near to* lovely scenery, then I can visit it often without it being taken for garnted.

Good point Fran. And There's definitely truth in that from my experience.

when I notice that I don't notice my pictuers, I move them around to different hooks, so they're alwasy "new" enough to catch my attention. Not sure if that sort of thing can be done in a garden, or with a landscape!

I don't think so. I can't think how. When I first moved up to Scotland, we had a lovely view of the Tay and the Rail Bridge from our house. I don't think I even missed it once when we left the house. Views always become invisible eventually. In fact, when we moved here I did think ...wonder how long it will be before I take these views for granted. It hasn't happened yet. I do remember the views of the bridge fondly...the fireworks at New Year in 2000...the Har (mist) as it crept up the river and under the bridge. I think it's the changes in the light, the sunsets and the crops that make the views here so special, especially at the back. They change all the time.

that's the secret, tiny changes that make the whole thing new and fresh - lol I wouldn't like to live on a tropical island where the weather was always the saame (apart from hurricanes!); my idea of heaven is an English woodland, with its infinite variety

Me too Fran!! I do love woodland. So much so, I think I must have been a squirrel once! ;)

28 May, 2015

 

lol Karen! I did dream of having a garden big enough to create, if not a woodland, at least hte feel of a woodland glade. sigh.

Sorry, I seem to have derailed the topic of this photo!

Doesn't matter at all Fran. :)

As you say, the view is ever changing in the countryside. Each season having its pleasures.

Yes, the Barley nearest to us has turned almost lime green now. The crop rotations will add to the transient nature of our views every year. Next year...oil seed rape!
