In the thin winter light
the setting sun
throws its final breath
on the fields below.
Bare branched trees
and muddy tracks
North Yorkshire, November 2017
Lines in the clouds, tractor track lines in the field and yes, a power line …
In the middle of August, the North Yorkshire Moors transform into a sea of purple. The subtle perfume of the tiny purple flowers drifts in the wind heralding autumn.
The other side of the world, a month later, on a dusty hot roadside in the Goldfields, Western Australia, spring flowers burst into bloom.
The Seated Figure, a 3 metre high bronze sculpture by Paul Henry, is perched on Castleton Rigg in the North Yorkshire Moors. One hiker we met said in broad vernacular, ‘It’s bloody brilliant’. I agree. The man sits looking across Westerdale. Waiting or simply meditating on the stunning scenery?
