Books, writing, reading, words and images. I love them; do you?

Today’s Picture: 21 May 20

Pen-y-Ghent is one of the ‘three peaks’ in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We lived in the area for a few years, which is when I took this picture, on a walk.

The idea here is to brighten the day for those people isolated indoors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This shot of Pen-y-Ghent in the Yorkshire Dales was taken some years ago, when we lived in that area.

If you find pleasure in this, please share it, so others can enjoy it, too. Thank you.

      Thanks, Lynette. Dry stone walls are a feature of the Yorkshire Dales. Some of them have stood for centuries, and there are regular contests held to keep the art alive. I used the one in this picture as part of the cover for my novel ‘Breaking Faith’, making a new picture that fitted in with the story. And thay say the camera cannot lie, eh?

          If you go to the tab at the top, and go to the tab @Books and Other Published Work’, Lynette, you’ll find a drop down menu. At the bottom is ‘Romances’ Click on that and it’ll bring up the cover of novel – look at the picture, and you’ll see the dry stone wall along with the gap, but the background is entirely different from this original shot.
          The contests are held in village called Kinsey. I could do to visit again, as I need to build a very small dry stone wall at the foot of the slope at the end of my garden!

            Thanks, Stuart. I’ll take a look when I’m on my desktop (I’m using my phone right now).

            You will need to find someone to teach you, and that will be good practise for him/her! 🙂

              Rather coincidentally, Lynette, we were on a different walk down here the other day and came across a newly built dry stone wall. I know who built that, so I’ll be having a chat with him once this socil distancing is done!
