Yesterday we visited Salisbury. We have great affection for the city as DH lived there for a while, and his parents were residents for many years. We were near the cathedral
and I took this picture from the passenger seat of the car as we drove away.
I was unsure of the finished result until I saw it on the computer, but I love the way the sunlight is just hinting from behind the spire – and the tiny flecks of daylight (behind the tree) that were a total surprise. Most of all, though, I like the way the scaffolding, of all things, is a horizontal foil to the vertical of the main construction.
As I said…… you know I’m odd
(And Janet, if you are reading this, ask me if I’ve used the design elements herein when we finally have that lunch )
I haven’t included one of these for a long time. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t been collecting pictures, but that my heart has just not been in blogging. It’s been a difficult year, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, and I can safely say that it’s just the way LIFE goes. We are not promised that anything will be easy or consistent, and it doesn’t really matter what we go through. What does count, though, is HOW we go through it, and how we emerge at the other end. I’m still the same person, but I know that parts of me have changed and developed. That might surprise you, but I think we are all works in progress – and I intend to progress for a long time yet.
Here in the UK it has been cold and dry, at least – it has in our neck of the woods. The sun is low even at mid-day
The bracken has turned to rust and there are fewer specimens of fungi to be seen.
The wind earlier this week has stripped most of the broad leaves from the trees, and the landscape is being gradually dressed in it’s stark winter clothing
Paths that were recently clothed in lush green foliage are slowly beginning their seasons’ rest.
Don’t forget to let me know if you take 100 steps anywhere. I’d love to see them.
