I like the watercolour effect of the image below, although the watercolour filter was not used.

Just a passing thought

 

An empty beach, a calm sea, a gentle breeze and a blue sky with a solitary cloud gliding slowly and silently by, evoking wistful thoughts  –  and memories of Wordsworth!

Abstract 179


After the activity of the festive season,  a little quietness and calm seems appropriate.

A walk in the New Forest (1)

One impulse from a vernal wood

May teach you more of man  

Of moral evil and of good

Than all the sages can.

William Wordsworth

The New Forest (situated mostly in S W Hampshire) comprises approximately 150 square miles of heathland and ancient woodland.  It has changed little since the Bronze Age.  The fact that the soils are largely infertile and unsuitable for serious cultivation has contributed to the Forest’s unaltered appearance.  The area was a favourite hunting ground for King William I (the ‘Conqueror’) and acquired the name of New Forest by royal charter in 1079.

There will be more to follow.
