Calm, peaceful water
Gently rippling in the breeze
Sound of birds chirping
Forced back by warming water
Bringing back new life
Horton-in-Ribblesdale from The Pennine Way
A summer’s journey
On a long-distance footpath
Reminder of life
The village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale is on The Pennine Way. Many people use the Pen-y-ghent Café in the village as the start and end point for The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
This view only shows about half of the village, including the railway station at the side of the village. The track is part of the Settle to Carlisle railway.
In the interests of honesty, we did not walk the full length of the Pennine Way. We only took a stroll of about a mile while we were waiting for our dinner to cook!
Soft, rippling water
Mallard meditates, calmly
Keeps a watchful eye
A day to relax
Time spent gazing lazily
Into the soul’s depths
Sunset over Cork in Ireland.
Colours fading into black.
Good night, beautiful.
One of the bridges for the Millennium Cycle Track near the Lougher Estuary between Swansea and Llanelli.
I love the way the blues all seem to reflect each other.
This is locally known as Elephant Mountain. You can probably see why.
It sits in the Snowdonia National Park.
This photo was taken from the Bryn Gloch campsite at Betws Garmon.
Do you think you see
The layers inside of me?
Help me set them free.
Take my hand.
Walk with me along life’s path,
Through fields of grazing sheep,
Toward the summit’s splendour.
Loaded down with picnic hamper;
Basket full of snacks and treats
That we can share along life’s way;
Our onward, upward hike.
Rest for lunch upon the peak;
Gaze out from the summit,
As far as eyes can see,
And look toward our future.
Wait until the crowds have gone;
The tourist walkers leave;
Then you and I shall rest, alone,
In private solitude.
Our peaceful idyll,
Under bright blue skies
With dappled shade from clouds on high,
Calms our troubled hearts.
You and I, finding peace,
Sitting, resting, talking, thinking,
Of philosophy and poetry,
Of life, and what we’ve made it.
Descend as evening starts to fall,
With shadows growing longer.
Walk with me, along life’s path,
And conquer hills together.
