Kentish skies


I have been lucky enough to visit 
and live in many town and countries
IF you severely twisted my arm,
Kent is the probably place 
I would choose as home...
I think...

In mid December I visited with my folks in Kent.
One day on the short drive home, 
after a shopping trip I tried to capture the view from the car window... at speed!


Mum stopped the car so I might capture the thick bank of cloud dividing the sky

  2. Yes, I remember laughing as we chased the sunset, looking for a place from where you could get a good shot, and ended up facing a farm gate. Wish I knew how to get pics from my phone to the pc...next time Saz?

  18. Hi
    Not sure where I've found you. Why is it everybody in the world takes better photos than me. Nice blog. Will be back.

  19. Gorgeous. My friend has a house on a sort of cliff in Kent overlooking the weald and it's absolutely spectacular. In fact, if I could have any house anywhere I wanted, I would steal hers for the view.

  22. I think there has to be one place where each of us would settle down. Even those people who say they can never settle down.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
