photoblog image From the kitchen

From the kitchen

Alas not my own kitchen but that of my recent base camp in the Peak District at the end of March. The view is across to the Edges which overlook the river Derwent down in the valley to the left. Off to the right is Baslow Edge, then straight ahead is Curbar Edge and to the left is Froggatt Edge. They make a splendid walk from the door of the cottage and the return is down to the river, along the river valley and then a slog back up the hill to the cottage.

Seems a perfectly lovely place, Alan! No doubt you'll stay there again!
Alan: It ticked all my boxes but alas the internet access only worked for about an hour! Still the location was wonderful as was the accommodation. Thanks, Elizabeth!

Its all a bit edgy, Alan...better take it easy on your bike, heh!
Alan: The "mountains" of Hampshire are enough for me; the near vertical roads int eh peak District would be beyond my abilities.

Very nice too. Mind you Scumsville could look a lot more like this if they pulled down most of the houses and emporia - Spud U Like, Primark, McDonalds etc
Alan: The typical residents of Scumsville would have to be eliminated, too.

You seem to live at the edge - I had expected to see some sheep grazing in front of your kitchen.
Alan: yes, I was disappointed that there were no sheep; the farm seem to be more interested in horses. When selecting a holiday cottage, they should have a tick box on the form for "Do you want sheep adjacent? Yes/No" Perhaps I need to start my own cottage agency smile Thanks, Philine.
Not a bad view to start your day, just needs a few sheep and it would be perfect
Alan: Yes, I was disappointed that there were no sheep; the farm seem to be more interested in horses.

Jolie composition pour cette photo. Le paysage est très beau.
Alan: It is a lovely part of the world. The Peak District was the UK's first national park.
What a lovely scene to gaze out on Alan.
Alan: It really needed a few lambs in the field for me to waste hours watching.
I'm posting a couple of shots with versions of this view in a few weeks time, the view from above Baslow, and yes we do manage slight hills sometimes, is quite spectacular.
Alan: Slight hills? I don't recall any other those; steep mountainous ascents seemed to be everywhere, though! I look forward to seeing your views.
Looks lovely and it has accommodation for those who don't want to hike at all - a patio.
Alan: Haha! yes, just the pace for morning coffee but in the shade for the afternoon.
this is a wonderful view out of the window, Alan. i see some really unusual numbers in your settings of this image.
Alan: That's the wonders of the iPhone; I've no idea of I can alter any setting. I just point the camera and press the button smile

i like it a lot....petersmile
