Travel Theme: Horizons – the sequel
Northumberland is a big empty county and we live on the edge of that emptiness. On Tuesday we walked the few miles from our home to the southern edge of Hadrian’s Wall. From up there the views south cross the Tyne Valley to County Durham and the views north stretch across a cinerama-wide landscape to the Scottish Borders – everywhere there are distant horizons, even on days when every season is represented:

Wonderful post (as usual) and lovely images! Especially the last one! 🙂 Have a nice day, Robin. ❤
Many thanks Malin, and you ❤ – I confess I cheated with the last one, that is from a different day 🙂
Well I’m glad you cheated with the last one, cause it’s a very good image!
Love those rolling hills and wide skies. You live in beautiful country.
We are very lucky – I try not to take it for granted.
These are terrific Robin! I especially like the gate and the last photograph-lovely and dramatic and really convey a sense of the great openness of the land-
Many thanks Meg – old Hadrian had an eye for the spectacular 🙂
I really like your black and whites, Robin, especially the one with the nifty red car in it 🙂
A bit like you and North Yorks, I should make the effort to get up to the Wall. It’s wonderful countryside and there’s sure to be stuff going on for the Bank Hol. (damp stuff 🙂 )
Many thanks Jo. Bound to be damp – I am playing golf 😦
What a great collection of dramatic landscapes….you’re very lucky to live so close to all this rolling drama! I love the colours in that first photo….that’s the essence Northumberland and East Lothian in late summer captured in pigments 🙂
Many thanks Seonaid – it is a wonderful place but no match for the northwest 🙂
