#PictureOfTheDay: 01/Dec/21

The ‘writing prompts’ didn’t do what I’d hoped, so I’m back to just pictures. Uncaptioned, these will show the natural beauty of our world or artworks that display some beauty of their own.

There’s a small selection of my pictures in the GALLERY. If you want pictures to decorate your home, or as images for jigsaws, calendars, greetings cards, or anything else, there’s a growing selection here.

    1. Thanks, Noelle. The age of the walls is probably around 1500 years, but they’ll have been rebuilt, repaired and restored many times during that period. Drystone walls are the normal field barriers in the area and are made with stones collected from the ground. It’s a skilled building process and those skills are passed down from generation to generation.

    1. The story prompt was taken up only a few times, Lynette. And it was clear from the comments and responses from loyal followers that the pictures of natural beauty were much more appreciated, so I’ve decided to concentrate on those instead. After all, if creative folk want to use those as inspiration for a piece of work there’s nothing to stop them.
      This shot is of the landscape in Yorkshire, taken from the limestone pavement (the one that appeared in the Harry Potter movie) at the top of Malham Cove and reached by climbing the very steep and often deep 421 stone steps from just near the Cove. The limestone cliff is 300 feet high, so this location gives a splendid panoramic view. We started our climb as the sun was going down and reached the top before it set. Definitely worth the effort. We crossed the path with a couple of 30 year olds who were on their way down. The woman of the couple grinned at us and fired a comment at her struggling male companion, ‘See, if those two old buggers can do it, I don’t see why you’re complaining.’ I responded with a wry ‘Yeah, not doing bad for 90 year-olds, are we?’ The look of amazement lasted only a couple of seconds before it registered I was joking.
