Drive

I went for a walk with Fire Byrd today, but since she's posted a number of photos on her own blog, I thought I'd add a clip of us driving through the countryside: it was just as enjoyable in itself (I'd suggest turning your sound down a little if you're watching).

I may post more photos or film clips in due course, but this will do for now: I'm pleasantly tired after three hours or so of walking in amazing scenery, including the rather stunning Lud's Church - atmospheric at the best of times, but especially so today. The silence demanded that you stop and listen to it - demanded stillness and reflection. Occasionally, it was punctuated by the sound of beautiful birdsong which filtered down and reverberated subtly against the rock.

Had we not had a good few miles more to walk, it would be easy enough to have remained in that place for a long time.

Reading your post a long forgotten phrase comes into my mind: if you dont understand my silence, you wont understand my words.

I love that phrase Paula, I shall remember that one. Thanks too for stopping by, and I'll return the compliment when it's not such a late hour :)

I think yesterday's visit to Lud's Church was wonderful. The silence as ever,but the lushness around was spectacular. And that one song bird breaking the silence with it's lovely song was perfect.

Couldn't agree more, Fire Byrd: I did take a bit of film footage in Lud's Church but I haven't had a look at it yet, I might post it up if it's good enough. x

came here from Fire Byrds - Luds church sounds intruiging and well worth the pilgrimate - natures shrine .... and all those legends of old... and the forest and birds around; fascinating.... where to next?

Hi Val, I appreciate you stopping by. I'll most likely post up some footage of Lud's Church within the next day or so. It's a great place. Where to next? Good question: but one or the other will post about it I'm sure :)

Daivd, I remember/recognise you! Yes amazing scenery and the photos definitely do not do it justice! Glad you mentioned it, and good to see you again.
