Lens-Artists Landscape

Landscapes really aren’t something I’m any good at, but that’s what Amy challenged us to post, so here I go.

 

Dartmoor, just a little way north of Scorhill circle, and south west of Gidleigh, this is the Wallabrook clapper bridge. As you know, Scorhill is a place I love.

Back to Dartmoor

A few weeks before Christmas I posted some photos taken on an afternoon trip to the moor, At the time I said I’d be back with a few more, but then l forgot.

I asked if anyone could guess the location, only Jude would have a vague idea, but she was a few miles out.

Think Hounds of the Baskervilles!

Yes, it’s Houndtor, my favourite place on Dartmoor.Well, one of two, or three!

 

 

Hello

and a very Happy New Year to all of you.

For various reasons I haven’t been around for several weeks, I’ve missed you, and  I’m sure you’ve all had a busy time as well. My time has been happy and also very sad, but I hope to be back to normal now.

Here are a few images from recent weeks.

I expect I’ll post a Wordless Wednesday tomorrow, it may even be wordy, and I’m finishing a poem. I’m anticipating some aches, pains and bruises tomorrow, because with the help of Flora and George, I slipped on the rocks at Sidmouth beach today. It was one of those slow motion moments where I thought I’d saved myself, but no, thought I’d saved myself a second time, but no, back I  went, my skull missing rock by an inch. I could only laugh!

A busy time

I’m missing lots of wonderful blogs posts! Apologies to those of you who I haven’t visited for a while, the last month has been full on crazy, but in a good way.

Here’s a photo from a trip to Dartmoor yesterday.

The light was lovely, then, as often happens up there, the mist arrived an hour later.

Happy Thursday!

Wild About Wool

A couple of months ago, I went to Poltimore House, and showed you the crumbling condition of the building. As part of the efforts being made to raise funds to restore the house, they have regular events, both inside and in the grounds.

Wild about wool was the event that made me decide to visit then.

There were members of the Devon Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.

Several felt makers, lots of knitting and crochet,

and even a royal wedding.

I’d never have the patience or skill to create work like this!
