#ScenicSaturday 05/Nov/22

All photographs in this series were taken in November, though not necessarily this year. My digital picture library started when I bought my first DSLR camera a few years back. I like to share them here to show #ourworldiswonderful.
This one, from 2021, was taken on the approach to Hardraw Force, a spectacular waterfall in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, usually accessed through the Green Dragon Inn in Hardraw village. Unfortunately, Putin’s vanity project causing death and destruction in Ukraine and encouraging greedy fossil fuel companies to raise their prices, coupled with a current UK Government obsessed with profits over justice, have forced up energy prices, causing the pub to close until further notice. So, I give you this taster in the hope that time, and perhaps some sense of proportion from those ultimately responsible, will eventually allow public access again.


These posts of our wonderful world are weekly, but I also Tweet one each day (assuming Elon Musk’s takeover doesn’t render the platform unusable for mere mortals), with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, join me here if you wish. I hope you’ll comment, like, and share these to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It may even persuade some to join the cause for nature and fight the fast-approaching climate emergency and species extinctions.

More pictures appear in the Gallery.
Find 2500 of my various images here for whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room, office, den, or for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever else you need. The small fee helps me maintain and buy equipment and software quality digital photography demands. Everyone should be able to afford artwork, I loathe the exclusivity of high prices.

  2. I am back in the subarctic where it’s -14C and the lake effect snow has started. It’s a heavy, wet snow that goes on for several days and leaves a lot of flakes behind. My M shovelled the steps four times yesterday. I keep reminding myself that I’m on my last work tour … 🙂
    Speaking of flakes, there’s a campaign here to boycott Musk (including buying his cars) because of his statements about Ukraine and support for Putin. I think Trump will soon be back on Twitter too with his foghorn of a mouth. Ugh.

    1. Glad this will be your last year in the frozen north, Lynette. Keep shovelling that snow!
      Re Musk, I’m just keeping an eye on Twitter for the moment – I’ve lost around 100 followers since he took over. I don’t want to abandon the platform on the rumours, but my feeling is that I will be leaving it in the not-too-distant future. And if he allows Trump back that will signal a change too many and I’ll definitely be leaving – it’s one thing to believe in ‘free speech’ but an entirely different thing to support a known liar of Trump’s calibre.

    1. Yes, Noelle, it’s quite surprising, especially as this is in the north of the country. But autumn is coming later and later here. As I write this, many of the trees in the forest retain most of their leaves, many of those still green. In fact, looking through my study window at the forest lining the valley, I can see much more green than the wark reds, oranges and yellows we associate with autumn. Climate change, I think.

        1. Just back from our walk, Noelle. It’s still unseasonably mild here, and promises to stay that way for another week at least. We managed to squeeze in our 3 mile walk between showers of drizzle, thankfully!
