To me, England is about landscape. On the whole a very gentle one with mists and subtle interplay of light and shadow.
It is about trees and clouds and grass.
All these pictures were taken within a span of three days and all pretty much of the same place - looking out from the garden towards the cow field and beyond that to the fields where hay had been baled, and one field where maize was still growing.
The topiaried trees show a hint of French influence and remain architectural even in winter.
Mist forms in the hollows of the land and above streams and burns off during the day.
In the morning it's mysterious, shrouding the earth.
