Nice, very nice landscape,Jim


Jim Evans (AXOTA) on July 11, 2009

Hello Fran, the landscape in my region of the UK is very hilly and the farmers grow crops and graze cattle almost to the very edge of the cliffs. The cliffs vary in height up to a max of some 200 metres!! Glacial activity over thousands of years is largely responsible for creating the peaks, valleys and dales of North Yorkshire!! Much of what you see here is part of a wider national park!!

Thanks for your kind appraisal Fran ;>)

Fantastic! I really really would like to visit Britain one day! It´s a so beautiful old fashioned country what I like so much!!!

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 4, 2009

Hello and welcome friends!!

toninaji Estoy tan feliz que te gusta esta foto, es uno de mis lugares favoritos,>) que nunca se arrepienten de haber estado en España, así que mi único conocimiento de la costa gallega hermosa es a través de su galería maravillosa;>)

MrEko--Why thank you!! I am glad that you enjoyed this view ;>)

Bibiana Papp--I suppose we are old fashioned because we like it that way Bibiana!! we hang on to the past, we are basically a very nostalgic nation and we love almost anything that is old and useless!! A bit like me really!!--old and useless ;>))


Bibiana Papp on September 4, 2009

Oh nooo, don´t say that! Your last sentence!

Therefore I like Britain so much.. because I´m old fashioned in everything, too. I don´t belong to this modern world :))

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 13, 2009

We all belong this world Babiana, even me ;>))

beegood greetings Maja...I hope that your snow is melting and that springtime is in the air...We have had clear sunny skies and severe night frosts! perfect weather for me..not for gardeners!

ϐriţisђ...I shall remember this day for its bright blue skies and warm breeze..it it hard to believe that this was taken ten months ago..The rest of the year was a bitter disapointment! I look forward visiting the Port and if the weather is fair, I might be there sometime tommorow..Thanks for dropping in..

Kind regards to you both ;>)
