photoblog image Ten Minutes From Home 7/7

Ten Minutes From Home 7/7

All of the images this week were taken about 10 minutes or so walk from my home during the past few weeks.

The final image in this series shows Piper Wood at Shepshed once again.

This time I have shown the other footpath that leads to it from the main road that runs through the town, and out to the A6 trunk road two miles away.

Immediately to my right is the M1 on an embankment and at this point, from the motorway, a great view across the fields to the woods is available, only for the passengers of course!

Tomorrow, and during the coming week, I will reflect on our visit to meet Bill at Clent.

Love all those woolly sheep in the blue sky, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Woolly sheep over Shepshed, or Sheepshead as it used to be called Ray smile

You'd never think this was so close to a motorway Brian
Brian Walbey: A matter of yards Chris, gladly you can't hear the noise like I could when I took this.
nice image / series.
Watch that horizon, a little to the right. Small nit.
Great skies, clouds are perfect.
Could be in New Zealand this, or Tasmania, or Esperence . . .
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Rob.
What a beautiful perspective Brian. The sky is superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it was a lovely sunny spring Saturday morning.

The clouds are the highlights of this pic- wonderful soft pillow places where I would like to sit down and to watch all the things and persons who are wandering around, crossing the bridge, picknicking at the edge of the wood...- a nice sunday pleasure for you and yours!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, a lot of people stroll this way, including us, although the motorway off to the right can be a bit loud at times.

We have been seeing these lovely blue skies from a few of the UK SC's so have to believe that you really do have fine weather. LOL
Lovely image Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed we do have fine weather quite a lot of the time really Aussie, just not when you come to visit sadly. Thanks for your comment.
Makes me want to get outside. Lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, we have another lovely day like this today.
A great series Brian..its nice to see your local countryside. The sky is beautiful in this. Good one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, I didn't really concentrate on the sky when I put this on to SC, it is quite good isn't it.

The clouds are superb Brian, thanks for the tour
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Tony, a might repeat some of these shots from a different time of the year later on.
You would never think the M1 was right next to you! I shall look forward to seeing your Clent Pictures
Brian Walbey: The M1 was next to me and noisy as usual Bill, I hope you enjoy my Clent pictures, and next Saturday might also raise a memory or two, and it isn't Clent.

We have the M40 near us Brian, I often think about all those people speeding by with no thought for the countyside they pass through. So much more to see on the smaller roads!
Brian Walbey: I'm lucky in that Maureen does most of our driving Mike so I get the chance to look at all this nice countryside we pass through. Thanks for your comment.

And it looks so peaceful too! Unlike Mike, I'm the opposite - when I'm speeding by on the motorway, I think of the unknown lives going on behind the hedges in the countryside.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: I must admit Ingrid I like to look at the countryside as Mike suggests, but from time to time I look out on motorways and think of those people having to live with the noise and smell of them 24/7.
Another shot of our green and pleasant land. I like the sky
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, a lot of people have enjoyed the sky on this one.
