A Chew Valley Idyll

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

As I walk into this dream world just on my doorstep (well about 5km away actually), I cannot help to think that my area with all its faults is pretty nice too, especially in Autumn.

So enough of the joking let's get down to true beauty!

I'm very impressed by this pretty autumn landscape. Those complementary shades altogether make a magnificent landscape. I'm taking this to a place where true beauty belongs Y* and a big like of course.

I recently listen to a lecture (at the University of Wageningen, NL) by John Rodwell (Institute of Environmental and Natural Sciences, Lancaster University)

500 years of change in a South Yorkshire landscape, Northern England.

It was called. A very interesting story on Wombwell Ings which is (excuse me if I'm wrong) not to far from Oldham.

Kind regards, Erik

Ela, welcome to my gallery. Great that you like what you see here. A little glimpse of my local countryside. Sadly all the golden leaves have gone now. Please visit again and thanks a lot for the vote and like

Steve, Andy and Erik, great to see you guys here again, gazing at one of my local Dovestones shots albeit one of the little valleys feeding it. Very happy you all enjoyed this and as you say much more satisfying large. Andy -be my guest! I feel honoured that anyone should like to look a little bit more on one of my pictures. Erik -Wombwell, about 30miles away as the crow fly's from this scene, might as well be on Mars! We Lancashire folk never wander over them there hill into Yorkshire much! (Thanks for the story -I had never heard of any of that before!) Special thanks for the great awards.

Best wishes to you all, Herb
