Greetings ROBERTO, I have had a quick tour of your gallery and I noticed a few photos of Newbury. You have many excellent images which I will return to visit in the near future ;>))

Many thanks for visiting my gallery and for the nice comments that you made.

Kind regards

Hi Jim, Lovely pic & area!


John Adamson on January 9, 2009

Very nice, Jim. The more I look at it the more I like it. Beautiful light and the detail is so clear, right to the far distance. A yellow star Jim.

Greetings from Indonesia, John

Many thanks 2c, this locality is a treat to see regardless of weather, but the snow scene reminded me of Christmas Hugh ;>)

Thanks so much John, that is a fine compliment on my photo for which I am most grateful!! That village in the far distance is so quintessentially English and my favourite feature in this shot!!

Kind regards to you both ;>)

Hi Jim what a wonderful shot this is.......very England I wish we had a bit of that cold and snow here in Victoria just now.

I'vew been away quite some time and have to thank you bery much for your kind thoughts asking after me. I will try to catch up with everyone over the next week or so.

It looks like I have many many photo's to go through.

Love, Pali

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on February 13, 2009

Wow Pali, its good to see you back on Panoramio ;>), I was beginning to wonder what on earth had become you, especially following your misfortunes last year.

You're going to be busy catching up Pali, much water has passed since you were last on!!

The suffering in your Oz has been awful, I've been watching the drama unfold for weeks now. How dreadful for those poor families to have lost everything. I do hope that the government can find the aid required to help all those badly affected!

Thanks for dropping in, it is a nice surprise ;>)

You take care now Pali

this is such an enchanting picture, Jim. Great to bring on the Christmas mood. Though I am quite sure it must be beautiful here in all seasons. Gorgeous place to live in and love those drystone walls - the most outstanding feature of rural England, in my opinion! Best wishes, susan

Hello and welcome Susan...It's good to see you here once again, your feedback is much appreciated!!

This is very much a Christmas card scene, not far from my home, in one of the most beautiful valleys imaginable!

There is a growing need to preserve these fine old walls and thankfully, younger men and women, have volunteered their services to learn the skills required to re-build them!!

The upper dales regions, like Wharfdale, Westerdale, Wensleydale and Swaledale to name but a few, are magical places---wild and unspoiled! I have a friend living close to these regions who has the most beautiful gallery!! I invite you to check out Anita's photos JUST HERE

Thanks for dropping in Susan ;>)

This is truly a beautiful Christmas Card scene, Jim - but it looks pretty chilly.

  • The northern hemisphere gets to have such beautiful traditional romantic Christmases

  • here, we celebrate with salads, fruit, ices, chilled wines, cold meats & barbecues to counteract the summer heat, and although I am definitely not complaining, I would - just once in my lifetime - so love to experience a real wintry Christmas with snow and all the northern hemisphere trimmings!!

I wish you and yours all a wonderful Festive Season - bless you! And keep on sharing these lovely photo's of yours with us.

Warmest wishes from

Hazel, Cape Town, South Africa

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on January 2, 2010

Apologies for missing your lovely comments Hazel ;>)

How amusing your thoughts of the perfect Christmas, your ideas were amazingly prophetic!! Since you sent your message, the UK has been inundated with harsh winter weather, resulting in snow lying for days on end, (check out my latest up-loads) cars abandoned every where and lots of cancelled events!! We don't deal with harsh winters too well in the UK!! In fact Hazel, two inches of snow will easily bring the country to a sliding slippery halt and every one can talk of nothing but the weather, let alone romance~~~So just now I would happily swap places with you.. salads, ice-cream, cold drinks and barbecues not withstanding ;>))

Here's a big warm wish for a very happy and healthy new year to you and yours Hazel..see you more in 2010 ;>)


Welcome to my picture viewer

I like this as I like all your country shots of your homeland.

Andrea Riberti on January 2, 2013

It would be nice to endless walk in this wonderful landscape. Ciao, Andrea
