Ahhh, the fenlands. My beautiful home. For some people the flat expanse of the fens is unsettling, some long for hills and mountains, but for me, nothing speaks to me of home like the fenlands – the flat, farmed fields, the ditches and drains and the wonderful array of birdlife and wildflowers.
I haven’t posted for a while on here. But I’m here to rectify that. I’ve been busy and away and wedding planning certainly takes up a fair amount of time. Today I wanted to share with you the beautiful landscape near my home, because as I remembered on my walk yesterday – it is very beautiful in a way that a glistening waterfall in a forest, or a close mountain valley never can be. Don’t get me wrong, I love going away to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Moors, the Forest of Dean and all those wonderful places. But I think the fenlands are unappreciated because if you asked someone to think of a beautiful nature photo, they would probably describe something like waterfall falling into a pool in a forest from a high cliff. Maybe I’m stereotyping…maybe not.
Anyhow, some photos must be seen. These photos were taken as I walked along the New Bedford River near my home.
Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my photos of the fenlands – and I hope you’ll agree that the views along here are beautiful! I hope to be continuing to post more regularly again now that the summer madness has left me.
