Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

This week’s challenge: Dreaming.

Not too difficult for me, and it really is just a dream.  To live in England/Wales/Scotland – Great Britain.

So these shots are from 2009, the last time I was there.

I dream of the moors – North Yorkshire, above Whitby:

Then just their wild emptiness:


Whitby itself I loved & dream of returning:

And the beauty of Wiltshire – I dream of White Horse Hill and the views for miles:

I dream of high places and the green of Welsh fields below the moors of the Brecon Beacons:

I dream of seeing deadly nightshade growing in the Selsey Shingle, made of stones and oyster shells thousands is not millions of years old:

I dream of wandering over  the Peak District in Derbyshire, of seeing Mam Tor again:

Forest in Wiltshire, along the Ridgeway: dreaming of walking through, living in, being part of these forests – ivy covered trunks, still green shadows, the scent of air alive and thick with growth:

    I miss and I dream this beautiful Wiltshire area… Your beautiful and amazing photographs took me into the dreams again… You are amazing and did great shots, dear Keira. And also I can see we are both in same feelings about these landscapes… Thank you, love, nia

    • thank you, dearest Nia. And those were taken with my old camera! But it is such a beautiful country – where they are leaving it alone, that is.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous photos! Can see why you miss these places, those trees, such beauty. Hope your dreams come true someday.

    • Wouldn’t it be wonderful – though, given the economic state of the place, I think Tasmania is more likely – sadly. Though – maybe not….dreams :-) As for the photos – can’t really go wrong in such a place (though there were a few blurred ones amongst the 1000′s I took in that hectic month…) Glad you enjoyed them :-)

    So, that is nightshade…good to see a real plant and not the usual illustrated ones found in nature books…very nice place you have…thank yOu…:)

    • it’s not my place, it’s where I’d love to be. That nightshade’s growing on the shingle on the English Channel, a long way form MtLawleyShire in Perth, Western Australia :-)
