Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Sundown under the arch...


This is a video I took on Monday. I don't know if it comes over as amazing as it was (probably not - it rarely does), but I thought I'd share it anyway...

Link to You Tube

Hope you enjoy it!

Amazing, awesome, underneath Annelisa's archer's.
The birds and bells agreed, and sounded out their applause..

I loved it all but especially the ducks taking off from the water, the ripples and the colours yellow, green and purpole reflected on the water. I felt I could almost touch the rape and grass in front of the church and I love birdsong. Thank you Annelisa for sharing a lovely part of the country.

Truely amazing! I love the sound of church bells in the air, seems to bring me back in time. You are my inspiration for moving; yes, I did walk yesterday. My photos would not be as inspiring yet I concentrated on appreciateing the beauty near me.Thank you for sharing the beauty that you see :)

Nice sundown and views! The ducks always intrigue me. =) And wow, you can never hear church bells ringing in my country! The only sound which can be heard is the muezzin's calling from the mosque.

Hi Annelise, love to take one of these walks with yah!
Another beautiful morning up my way
Hope your weekend is bright & sunny too

Must find a long wekend to head down the coast. Maybe August Bank Holiday.
I could always throw in a free spanish lesson or two for B&B. lol!

Good Morning, Lettuce- Yes, it is wonderful... I only wish I could capture it in 3-D, with the lingering scent of the Rape flowers and the (a little bit chilly) breeze. One day, I'm sure they'll make cameras like that! :-)

Morning Queenie - I feel bad I haven't been over to find out how you're doing with your op and smoking... I hope something's happening about the op, and that nothing is smoking :-D

I hadn't thought about the bells when I went to that spot, to tell the truth. That they started and stopped whilst I was there was one of those pieces of luck you hoard up and feel smug over :-D It made for a lovely moment!

Hi, Aklelamalu... I'm glad you enjoyed the scenery. When I lived in London, I loved to come back here, and bask in the beautiful surroundings, and I thought I'd get jaded once I got here. You know, get accustomed to it being so darn gorgeous. But I never do - there's always something new, or some new way of looking at it! I'm glad to be able to share it with you! :-)

I'm 'the inspiration for moving' Pauline? Omgosh - I really hope the move goes well, or you'll be able to blame it on me! :-S

Sincerely, though, I'm sure it could only be a good thing, if you are moving to a place where you canc be more peaceful...there's nothing like nature to do that, is there! I'm glad you have a chance to get out and enjoy the beauty near you... it's always there, if only you look for it, isn't it.

Morning, FKI'm afraid the bell ringers weren't being specially creative with their repertoire, but it's a very mellow sound to hear from the distance (close up, near the old primary school, it's an ear-burster! :-) )

I thought you might enjoy this! :-D

:-) I would love you to join me on one of the walks, Quasar - I take plenty, so pick a day! :-D I'm sure we should be able to sort something out.

My mailbox is full of spam overload - I think 'they've' just found me again... :-( I'll send the pic of the spider later (I'm going out today, to my nephew's communion) Have a great day!

I love rainy landscapes. The rain softens the sharpness of everyday angles. Beautifully done.

I thought I heard church bells.. so turned it right up. That was so nice - don't hear them EVER here (despite living in Church central... Jehova's witness hall on the next but 1 corner, 3 church cross at the top of the hill etc etc... no bells.)

Hi Annelisa! Another one of those beautiful morning walks! I prefer photography to videocam.

I love the birdsong.. love it. It is all so peaceful there.

Here I'm just watching this enormous revolting black crow stretching his wings on my fence... clear off you ghastly thing as a couple of equally ghastly magpies take its place

No pretty birds here... shame!

*big sigh* how lovely to be living there.

Ive posted a conclusion of something I had beenw orking on, but it is a sort of resolution of the rprevious post that you liked as well.

Please let me knwo what you think, I would very much like to know if it is overdramatic (just as the post) etc..

No computer yet honey? :(

I can't believe I was so behind! loved the video... looks peaceful despite the darkness.

I enjoyed your fabulous photos of your walk in the Wetlands! Simply fabulous!

Your hair is starting to get shape again! Was wondering. Time flies and hair still grows at about half an inch a month.

Your friend Julia is all that!

None of my Computers has let me look at it yet.
i'm thinkin' you should come to Texas and Oklahoma next year during the Spring and join up with a group of StormChasers and go after a Tornado.
I think you could excel at that!

"Can it be a village?"
Sure Annelisa... that's fine!
I'll be waiting.

And thanks for passing by 1 Million Love Messages :)
