Streets of Europe.
Wells is one of my favourite places to visit. I love wandering around the market and then into the grounds of the cathedral. I’ve pulled this out from a collection of photos I took the last time I was there, earlier last year. There is a solitude to be found inside the walls of cathedral grounds that cannot be found elsewhere. That, coupled with the stunning architecture, makes them sanctuaries of peace and beauty within our cities and I never pass up an opportunity to explore a new one, especially with camera in hand!
This weekly photo challenge thing has really grabbed me…. in fact it seems to have completely taken over my blog – I really must try to get back to the original intention!
Having said that, I’m really enjoying the challenges. I’m finding that when I’m out with my camera I always have the challenge in mind and I’m constantly looking for opportunities to create a new photograph to post.
Yesterday we took the dogs for a walk on Kinver Edge. It’s been a few months since we were last there and there were huge changes in the woodland scenery. There’s obviously been some planned logging, with huge piles of logs waiting to be transported away, but there was a lot of storm damage too and many of the tracks were blocked by fallen trees. So, as well as the usual wide shots of trees and the views from the edge I was able to get up close to the log piles and peer inside!
When I’m staying with my son he likes to take the dogs for a run at weekends. Although they live in an urban area there are a number of wide open spaces within a ten-minute drive. My granddaughter likes to climb trees and this is one of her favourite climbing trees. The branches sprawl very close to the ground and she can get right inside them without having to climb to a great height – she’s really not that brave!
